suzuki oil filters

just cut one open and not impresses with the internals, looks to be the same construction as the old frams which were pure crap, paper end caps that can come loose. Also made in china, been using Hi-flow for the past 20+ years and will defiantly be staying with those.

Re: suzuki oil filters

This is one of those never-ending topics. I thought that the Suzuki filter was now the 16510-07J00. Don't know how it's different from earlier. I think it's made by Wako Filter Technology Co. What reviews I'd seen indicated that it was of average quality. Aren't the Hi-Flo's (who also make the K&N filter) made in Thailand? I generally think well of the Mobil-1 M1MC-133, though it's also made in China.

Re: suzuki oil filters

The same filter goes on nearly every model of Suzuki. It's just fine. I've used twenty or thirty of them without any issues. The only filter I would avoid using is K&N. People have reported leaks, but I suspect it's user error. People get drawn in by the nut welded on the front and over-tighten the things.

"just looked at a Hi-flow box, sez it made in Kent England and Atlanta Georgia"

I've never looked into it in any detail but I think that those are corporate offices rather than manufacturing sites. See this and this and this and this. There are repeated claims that the Hi-Flo's are made in Thailand. The second link suggests that those locations are actually distribution centers of Bike Alert. Note also per the last link that the K&N nut is for removal only.

It's hard to tell without asking each seller but I get the impression that many of the cheap Suzuki 16510-07J00 filters on ebay are actually the earlier 16510-34E00. I'm no Mobil 1 salesman but I note that, while their filter can be hard to find, it's available at Pep Boys for less than $8.
