OEM? Has not Yamaha used about 4 different manufacturers of oil filters in the life of the FJR? That means 4 different OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers).

To my knowledge only Denso. The first one was just a blob of filter material, rather odd and not very good IMHO. Latest one is more like traditional pleated media, but is the "shorter" version.

I'll let the OP say his reason but mine is far too many reports of leaking at the projection welds for the nut. A couple of VFR guys have had the nut fail and leaked a large amount of oil onto the rear tire, others just had leaks. I know of one guy who went down and it wasn't good. Apparently there was a recall some time ago, but some have had leaks since. My only thing then, if you are going to use one, do not tighten it on with the nut (I don't know that they did or didn't). I'm sure there have been happy customers too, but why roll the dice?

There was a recall and that was limited to a particular range of serial numbers. That doesn't mean all K&N oil filters are bad. Many of the reported leaks are caused by ham fisted mechanics using the nut to tighten the oil filter. K&N specifically directs you to not do this. The plural of anecdote is not data.

We also had several instances of failed K&N's on the CB 1100 forum. The welded nut is a definite possible failure point. Personally I agree with Ray, why roll the dice with your motor and your trip?

To the best of my knowledge I have never read/heard of a OE filter failing

I don't see any reason why I wouldn't use purolators. They're cheap, 2mins down the street at advance auto, and I've used them forever. My old civic used the same filter as my CBR.
That was convenient.
I'm pleased to see their new boss filters are black.
Regular is red, pureONE are blue, boss is black. You can match them to any bike!

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.

What's wrong with a K&N?
K&N is a marketing company, not a developer.

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?
