Anyone with experience with HIFLO HF165 oil filter

Anyone with real experience with HIFLO HF165 oil filter on F800GS (my a 2012)? Looking at pricing it seems reasonable.

Who cares, if it's listed as an oil filter that can fit than go for it. You change them every 10k. Nothing bad will happen to your bike. Bought one for 10 because my supply shop had them in stock and there is no need to buy an expensive k&n one.

Loutre is correct.
I also use Hi-Flo and have for a long time, along with 20W-50 oil. Neither are recommended by BMW because it costs them money.
But 20W-50 is the only oil the dealer carries.
Motorrad tells them to.
Wrap your mind around that one!

Want a deal? Beemer Boneyard will sell you 4 count'em 4 Mann filters, some drain plug washers you will never need, and a filter removal tool that fits on your socket driver, all for one low, low price.

I used an HF164 for a couple thousand miles. Had no problem with it.

interesting, I use a hi flo filter, I had a hf160 on, when I bought a new one it was a HF164. looking at the Hi Flo online catalog the correct one would be a HF160, the only difference is the height of it.

the HF160 - 52mm
HF164 - 54mm
HF165 - 57mm

all of them are speced for BMW motorcycles. My best guess is they are the same, so as long as your skidplate still fits any of them would be ok

Last year sometime one of the inmates here (sorry I can't remember who) e-mailed HiFlow and asked ... geez

Here's the answer he got back:

"When the F800GS was introduced it was specified with the 11427673541 OE oil filter which is equivalent to Hiflofiltro HF164.

BMW changed the recommended oil filter for the F800GS and certain other models to 11427719357 which is equivalent to Hiflofiltro HF160.

When replacing your oil filter I strongly recommend you only fit HF160.

I hope this is of help and thank you for using Hiflofiltro.

Best Regards,
Jim Irwin

JR, that's bizarre. The newer BMW filter has the long snout yet the HF 160 is a much shorter, somewhat old GS style short stubby.

Yeah... it is kinda weird.....
You won't think building a damn oil filter would be this difficult.....

Up until recently the Fram PH8 fit almost every car that ford made from 1956 on....

That e-mail from HF was back near end of 2012 ... maybe they've changed their minds again?

I'm currently using the K&N as I got a great deal on them ....

Hi Flo

Use the filter and Darth Has just over 100K on the ticker. Been using them for 3 yrs. now. No problems and the $ is a great value. Go for it.

I haven't done an oil change yet since my bike has only 600km lol
But concerning the oil filter... Does the OEM have a pressure by-pass valve in it?

Does the aftermarket MANN or Hi-flow have it also? same relief specs?
This is pretty important

You can write to them and ask them.
If a brand of filter has done 100,000 on one of these bikes, it should be fine.
MANN and Hi-Flo have been working fine in BMW applications for a long time.
For some people, the redesign of the BMW filter caused an obstruction with the filter guard they were using (my Touratech wouldn't fit with the new filter) with the alternatives, you have a stubby design like the original ones were on the F bikes.
Hi-Flo works fine for me.
