Yep, HF#148. I add a couple here & there to an order when they're on sale. Never had a problem with them.

Interesting info on this site http://www.hiflofiltro.com/why-hiflo/
FJR1300 01-12 is a HF148
FJR1300 13-16 is a HF204
I wonder what changed? I am using the same filter # I used on my first gen on my Gen 3 with no issues?

I also see that Yamaha's part numbers have been superseded as well over the years.

Yamaha specified a different filter for the Gen III. It's a tad shorter.

It puzzled me when I bought mine that Wix had different parts numbers as well.

No big deal; they're interchangeable.

The longer 3.25 inch filters fit just as well as the 2.5 inch filters, even with canyon cages.

13 years or so ago Honda changed the p/n of GL1800 oil filter, discontinuing old. The 2013+ FJR cross references to the same as a GL1800. I still have a few sealed in plastic Honda filters which will probably see use on FJR.

Amsoil specs the same filter for both bikes.

Interesting. Same numbers as the K&N filters. I believe they make the K&N filters. But I love the 17mm nut on the top of the K&N. Just bought a Yamaha waverunner, uses the 204 filter. That one is hidden in the bowels of the hull. Definitely need the nut! Ha!

Now I see from the link, hiflo has a racing line that has the nut.

Thought I would add this on to this thread.

Was in need for an oil filter, and not close to a dealership so went to Advanced Auto and AutoZone to find a filter, and while I was there snapped these pics of the Convex and Concave issues with the Purolator filters. Also threw in a Mobil M1-110A

Notice the BOSS is concave, the Purolator One is Convex, and the Mobile 1 is maybe neutral.

I have used Pure Ones (blue painted case, the "new" ones) on my last three oil changes with no leaks.

I still have an old baby shlt yellow one. I compared the two. They pretty much match your second picture. Then I laid a 1/8" thick piece of aluminum across the sealing washer on the edge and measured down to the edge of the central hole. New one (convex) measured 7.56 mm. Old one (concave) measured 10.02 mm.

The new, blue filters, though visibly convex, seal just fine.
