Back on track, how many miles are on the Husky BigDog? I looked at some larger ADV bikes this weekend and I can not justify the pricetag, so I am back to looking at new/reliable dual sports and the Italian KLR sounds very promising, just wish Hall's was closer than 4 hours away
Pull apart a Hi-Flo and put the bypass spring on a tensiometer. Compare the spring rate to other filters. If one uses a low tension spring in a filter, there's more oil bypassing the filter element than going through it. Hence, Hi-Flo.

Since some have already gotten their panties in a wad, PM me, for further discussion.
