This is the part number I use as well, curious as to what the other number above in this thread is?

Missing to my collection of pics of cut filters that the Wix, altough I already know what's inside, one of the autoparts stores I go to has the Wix sales display with such a cut up filter.All good....!

Question

Looked in my CARQUEST (WIX) catalog, and the 85936 (557936) filter is listed for all K bikes, oil heads, and hex heads. I always used the 85348 filter in my R1100RSL. The dimensions are as follows:
84936- OD 3.09"
Height-3.10"

85348- OD 3.404"
Height- 2.921"

Both have 3/4-16 threads and similar gasket dimensions. The one listed for BMW, 85936, sells for almost 2 1/2 times the 85348. I'll probably use the cheaper on on my GS.

More than that I can't say.

I would love to fly in a F4U one day...they're getting rare.

US Marine and US Navy pilots are the best in the world by a wide margin with the Israeli pilots coming in second.

Go Navy!

Interesting.
I'm not 100% sure what the nominee process was back when you received your appointment but for at least the past 30 years the medical and physical readiness qualifications to enter the Academy are the same as they are for Aviation Officer Candidates, with the exception of the 20/20 vision requirement, but they will tell you right up front if your eyesight precludes you from flying.
So did you graduate from the USNA as a non flying Naval Officer? Certainly nothing wrong with that.

Things were apparently a bit different in 1960. I did not find out that my vision would preclude me from flying jets until I was about to graduate from NAPS. I elected to serve out my enlistment in the fleet,then go to Arizona State University and study mechanical engineering.

Go Sundevils.

My father, brother were also US Navy. In fact, dad was part of the team that developed the first military RADAR during WWII. My brother taught snipes at the high pressure steam lab, Great Lakes Naval Training Center.

Me, I continued attempts to get a waiver for my vision so I could fly but time passed and it didn't happen. I later found out that my vision tests were conducted by a corpsman who doctored the results.

So, I was discharged as a white hat sailor.

Good info

but what about the Wix 51348?

or is that the bottom one you listed?

the -348?

with a store's prefix on it?


edit, nevermind, I see now

http://www.wixfilters.com/Lookup/Int...x?q=84936&o=me

hmm what about the 51348xp, has metal backed synthetic filter media ( compated to paper for the others.)

also, the 51348 ( non xp) has an anti drain back valve, I do not see where the 936 does?

Hey Go4, that is just the kind of info I was wanting. Looks like it will fit and the filter wrench may just get enough clearance to get in there for the tightening. I try and go with good quality oil and filters for my once per year changes. Talk about cheaper filters does not interest me that much. I am old enough to have learned that you generally get what you pay for. Even the mail order stuff that looks like such a good deal usually doesn't look all that great when you figure in shipping costs.

You flyboys finished hijacking my thread?

I figured since I answered your question this thread is on the downhill slide.

But if you're changing the oil in your bike just once a year, you may want to consider trading it in on a Hoveround

I only change twice a year...every 10k...why waste money and time changing more?

Back to your regularly scheduled oil thread...

51348 is the WIX number, 1348 is the NAPA number, 85348 is the CARQUEST number. The last three digits are the actual filter number. The first digits are just to designate who they were packaged for. Back when I had my RSL, WIX didn't list a filter for it, so I just went off the specs and started using the 85348 (CARQUEST). Has worked fine for years and now interchanges from all the other mfg part numbers. I don't know why WIX now lists a different (more expensive) filter for our bikes, but I'll keep on using the less expensive one. I wasn't aware of the xp filter. I'll have to check it out. The anti-drainback valve is for filters that mount tilted or sideways, so they hold oil when the engine is shut off. Not really necessary in our application, unless your bike takes a nap. It doesn't hurt anything, anyway.
