The Fulda Gap... now that brings back memories. Guess we did a good job; Warsaw Pact never even gave it a try.

The past few bikes I've had worked with Mobil 1 M110 filter and it seemed to do well. Never had a seal problem. I make sure the seat is clean and wipe the O-ring/seal with fresh oil before installing.

When my wife and I married she was driving an early 60s Chevy II that she'd gotten from her grandmother. I asked them when the oil had been changed, and they both just shrugged their shoulders. So I slid in under it and pulled the plug -- nothing. I had to poke up into the drain hole with a screwdriver to make the sludge come out that it was using for oil.

Maybe it is overraged

Holy mother of god man !!! Say it isn't so !!!!! My oil is contaminated !!!

I need slick 50 !!!!! I need Prolong !!!

Just run the engine for 5 minutes with a 50/50 blend of water and olive oil before putting the new oil in and you will be good to go ...

M110's work perfectly and are extended drain filters so it makes the obsessive side of me feel better about skipping a filter for every other oil change.

Does any of it really matter ? No ... But i need to feed that "other guy" in my head ... There ... I said it ..

I melted the pistons in my XS650 due to lack of oil. Then I topped that off by selling it to a friend for $50. Not be outdone, he literally tossed it in a dumpster.

Same here, the welded nut is my kryptonite. I don't care what good/bad is spoken/written with K&N oil filters, my oil comes out clean when changed, and the nut allows perfect removal and torque on install. Used for 20 years, never a problem.

Not good! Have been using the D3323 since the first oil change. Without a hitch. Will be keeping a 'closer eye' now. Here's to hoping, if it was a production problem, it was a one time, and limited one.
