There was a test somewhere. I think it was from B.I.T.O.G.
The K&N's did well as did several others.
Much to my surprise Emgo's rated high as did the Wallyworld Supertechs!

Gotcha, thanks Ninja. Thanks for the post, Joe.
yo pearljam.. i did the conversion and threw on the supertech st7313.. if youre going to use it, you would have to take off the headers to change the oil filter everytime since its taller than the regular suzuki oil filters... i switched the the supertech st6607 and it fits perfectly like the oem suzuki.. no need to take the headers off during oil changes.. just a heads up..

Thanks a lot for letting me know. I bought the adapter, but won't be putting it on anytime soon. As I just recently changed my oil with an oem filter. I intended on buying the st7313 in the future though. I thought what you confirmed was going to be a problem. But, I was waiting to check it out for myself. Is the 6607 wider than oem ? I hope. Thanks :cheers

sorry i dont think so.. the 6607 looks to be the same size as the oem suzuki one.. i like the idea of the 7313 but i dont want to have to take the fairings and headers off everytime i change the oil.. ill just stick with the 6607's now.. atleast its only $2.80/filter now.. haha

From the top....

There is no such thing as an AMSOIL SMF-109 it is an EAOM-109 for 5 years now and it is a different filter.

Scott's filter: This is a racing filter. If you care about your bike, it is not the filter for you. If you do not have a Sonic cleaner, this is not the filter for you. If you enjoy playing in dirty oil to change/clean it, this is the filter for you.

Nissan?: I am showing only Suzuki and Arctic Cat

K&N: Doesn't filter that great. Just has a gimmicky nut.

DO NOT use a Purolator Pure One ! They can cause oil pressure issues and that is the life of your engine.

the calsci website is just cut aparts. Other than construction, you cannot tell if a filter is any good as there were NO tests performed.

There is more to a filter than thread and O-Ring.

How? There are a lot of Yamaha and Kawasaki bikes running them and there doesn't seem to be any reported issues. You know how the internet is. One failure and everyone will know about it.

Given that the bypass valve is within a few psi of the Suzuki OEM and well within the pump pressure capacity and given that the filter is designed for larger car engines that would possibly flow more oil where can the problem be?
