    Generic oil filter

    I have seen this posted before but I searched and could not find.

    Can anyone tell me the generic oil filter for a 2000 R1100R?

    One that can be found at Auto Zone or Walmart. Not many stores around here.

    Thanks
    Dave

    any testing that i have seen on "generic" oil filters says "don't waste your motor by trying to save a few bucks."
    beemerboneyard has Bosch filters ata really good price. Just buy a bunch, you'll be fine.

    like i said- the Fram has tested incredibly poorly. many others are not much better-but hey, it's your dime.
    some tests:

    I also use the Purolator L10241 with good results. Pep Boys has them on sale sometimes for $2.

    Where did you say this?



    I listed fram since wallyworld carries them. And since ChicotDave listed wallywolrld as a close retailer.

    I've seen the reports. I guess those millions upon millions of Fram filters out there are just ticking time bombs.

    But let's not hijack this thread with a best filter discussion. We all know where that goes.

    The Fram 6063 corresponds to the Fram PH 3614. The Wal Mart super tec ST 3614 crosses to this and the Purolator filter mentioned and the Bosh. Champion filters makes the Bosh and Super Tec. Both have 98% single pass filtering. There is a web site were a guy dissected filters and the Bosh and Super Tec were identical. $6 or $2 your choice for the same thing. The Bosh and Purolators take a different wrench than the Fram PH 3614 and Super Tec ST 3614.

    These are the same filters used in the old K bikes.

    Fram buys the 6063 from the same manufacturer as BMW. You can compare the two, same size, finish, weight, internals look the same, just the writing on the outside is different. JON

    Jon, do you have a link on that? i've read numerous reports, and the Frams always come up as crap, and the BMW & K&Ns (along with a few others) come up solid.

    I did a search in previous MOA threads on oil filter tests. here's what i came up with- http://www.tobycreek.org/oil_filters/kandn.shtml This is one that i had remembered reading before.

    when you look at the pics and the write-up of the BMW OEM and the Fram, they are clearly NOT the same filters! Getting a filter cheaply and readily should not be the only criterion for filter selection- somewhere in there you/we should be paying attention to quality of product as well.

    When you've spent several thousand dollars (at minimum) on a motorcycle, it seems kind of lame to try and save $2 on a filter at the potential risk of toasting your motor.

    But hey, that's just me.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    Mahle makes BMW filters. I can find no link, online or elsewhere, between Mahle and Fram.

    the pictures provided by Dave are all the proof any of us should need.

    This seems like a pretty good write up on oil filters. It is written for non engineers like me.

    This cross reference guide is also pretty good.
