I've never been impressed with the quality of anything with the Emgo name on it.

They are one piece, and on my bikes they slip right in and have always come out looking the same. Can't imagine what would cave a filter in.



Was in the garage and looked, told myself to remember the number. Don't trust my memory but it might be HF161.

Neither Hi-flo or K&N makes the longer filter for the oil cooler applications.
Emgo and Fram are the only ones that do.
I wouldn't run a FRAM in my lawn mower.
No expereience with Emgo filters, other than the ones for the URAL,which were better than the factory filter.
Whn it comes to oil filters on my own Airheads, it's either Hi Flo, K&N or factory.

I never rode hard or at high rpms, but had Emgos for years without any issue. Kind of "amble" along on Wisconsin roads.

Might have been just dumb luck. The old twins, 90s, and current bikes seem fine.

YMMV

What about Mahle filters? Don't they make them for the airheads?

My son uses them in his oilhead, and I use them in my Kaw W650.

Supposedly, they make OEM filters for BMW.

Mahle is indeed an "oem" supplier to BMW, but not normally stocked at parts houses around the country.
Best quality there is though.
Where are you getting yours?

Huckys carries the straight oil filter for $13.50, the hinged for $15.00. Good guy to deal with, honest, dependable, reasonable, quick.... what more do you want!!!

Full disclosure: Hucky lives here in town, so I can call before I drop in, and he has been an absolute top-notch, great guy for advice, parts, etc. I like to see his business thrive! He was born in the old country, has raced and renched BMW's all his life, and really knows his stuff!!





Check out the page with all the filter options (at the bottom of the page)



Filter for oil-cooler equipped bikes ($15.00):

I use Hi-Flo for my W, also.
I wish I could get them for my Enfield. It feels dumb to have to have oil filters sent in the mail.

I'm glad you have had good dealings with ol Hucky. I spent several thousand dollars there one year and when a problem arouse he refused to even look into it. Just told me it was my fault, end of discussion. He had sold me some inferior aftermarket pushrod seals. Since then I found I wasn't the only one who had a problem with them. I have heard a couple of other similar issues but don't know for sure if they are credible.
Just sayin, how it went for me.


Oh and I almost forgot, filters. I have used Napa filters in trucks and heavy equipment for decades and my airheads for a few years without an issue. Many of their filters are made by Wix. I have heard of people getting OEM filters when they buy Napa boxed filters, but it seems like all I have seen on them is made in Poland and a part #.
I haven't noticed the oring difference that Stephen talked about, but I'll take a closer look.

I've spent a LOT of money at Huckys. He is the best. Without fail he has sent my many orders out the day he receives them. Some of his parts are a bit higher than the bigger suppliers but his service and expertise is well worth a couple extra bucks here and there. Long live the "little guys"!!!!

Are you kidding??

After thinking for a micro-second about all of the $$$$ that I've spent on my new engine, theres simply no friggin way that I'm going to cheap-out on oil filters. I swear... When I get broke enough that I can't afford a new filter every couple of months, I'm going sell my Stratocaster or to park the bike and walk.

I don't use cheap oil, I won't buy cheap filters, I always run quality tires and tubes and I make damn sure my brakes are working 100%.

Everything else is negotiable .

x2 for Hucky. He's been a great resource for the short time I've been an Airhead owner.

As for oil filters I found this deal when it came time for my oil change. http://www.euromotoelectrics.com A 5 pack of hinged filters for $25 is a good deal.

Granted they aren't oil cooled filters, but thought I'd contribute.
