Cross Reference of Oil Filters

Hi Folks,

Did a search but nothing came up of the different brands of oil filters you can use on the FJR.

I have a 2008.....might be a good sticky to have a cross reference thread somewhere of all filters ect.....

Why not just get the Yamaha one ?
I never buy pattern parts as you have no idea how they are manufactured.
Some years ago I needed replacement brake pads. My dealer persuaded me to buy pattern ones that he said were excellent, they were until it rained !

As far as oil filters go there are only a few differnt manufacturers around

They make different brand names but they are the same manufacturer in some cases.

Any name brand oil filter is pretty good, if I can save $5.00 or so and get a quality one vs the Yamaha why not?

They may come from the same factory but that does not mean that they are the same.

It has been found that in the UK some supermarkets have been selling beef burghers with horse in them. They have all come from the same factory but the amount of horse has been from minimal to 30 per cent, depending on the supermarket that was being supplied.
So you get what you pay for and it may affect your horsepower.

Since Horses are leaner it's probably better for you!!

My question is how do you know how well an off brand oil filter works? Does it have a bypass valve? If so, then at what pressure does the bypass valve come into play? What is the flow rate of the filter? What size particulate does it remove? If you can be certain that the answers to these questions meet the design specs of the bike then maybe it is a wise purchase.

Not trying to be contrary, but there is much more to the engineering of an oil filter than most would think. I do not have the education or experience to answer these sort of questions so I stick with the OEM. It is odd to me that people will scrimp on such an important item like a oil filter and then drop $600+ on a seat.
