My last Purolator Boss didn’t fit.
Bottomed out before the gasket sealed.
Anyone have a model number for
Purolator that’s known to fit?

Ummmm..... you can't any Purolators or Bosch... when they redesigned, they have an "outie" end, thus insufficient depth to screw it on far enough to seal well.... you would have to take the oil filter adapter out of the engine and machine ~ 0.060" off the face, then you'd be OK.
Also, don't use a PureOne on a bike, they don't have as much flow (approx. 2 gph less) and Purolator does not recommend them for motorcycle use.
There are other threads we discussed oil filters in..... check there.

Hi Flo 204 is my filter of choice. Less expensive than Mother Yamaha's OEM & have used it on 3 different models of Yamaha bikes.

Well that's unfortunate.

I didn't mean to spread any misinformation. I had no idea they changed the filters. I have several old ones here on the shelf, so when they're gone, I'll probably order from hiflofiltro.
I ordered like a dozen of that brand for my klr650 (cartridges) and they were cheap and highly recommended. I usually buy multiple filters when I do.
The guy who bought that bike got 5 free filters. 😁

Mobil 1 M-108 is the shorter filter. M-110 is the longer one. Still black with a peel-off label. Both still innies and both available off the shelf, i.e., no shipping charges, from local auto parts places.

I'm not in any way knocking Yamaha OEM filters. It's just that they're no cheaper for me when ordered b/c my nearest Yamaha dealer is now about an hr away.

I've used HiFloFiltro as well.

The Mobil 1's are a very well built filter if you've ever cut one apart. Where I am they are a little pricey, but are good quality stuff.

K&N motorcycle oil filters are made by other manufacturers. HiFlo Filtro pioneered the nut on can and originally made filters for K&N until K&N found a cheaper source in China.

K&N is rightly responsible for the QC, or lack thereof.

Known batches of faulty weld K&N filters were recalled. That doesn't mean everyone heard.

Genuine non-Chinese HiFlo Filtro filters with the nut are available for half to 2/3 the price of a K&N.

Why not glue a 0.060" spacer to the outer o-ring seat?
