Use google for for your search engine.


But,........ Stainless doesn't show waves when it gets water in it. The stock filter is sort of a diagnostic tool for these stupid beasts.

The S/S one has a bypass valve if I remember correctly. So if the oil water sludge blocks the filter the bypass opens. Better watery oil than none.



Close. Sludge will flow through the SS filter. There is no bypass. When sludge hits the paper filter, the water swells the paper and you get no oil pressure. So, it's up to the end user to decide which way to go. I prefer fluid pressure over the potential of no pressure. Those aluminum cam journals fry quickly in low pressure. Some will prefer the "warning system" of wavy pleats. Whatever. Hope you see the wavy pleats before it's too late!

Oh gees the Search Police rears it's ugly head. Who cares? New people would never know it exists if it weren't for new threads.
Let's see I don't know aScotts filter exists so I'll search for it? Yes he knew it existed but OTHERS DO NOT!
Chill...

A lot of these bikes have oil pressure warning lights--possibly an alternative to pulling out the oil filter to check for coolant

Remember also that if you are on a trip and your paper filter gets plugged/pleated and you get no oil pressure, you can just put the bike on the side and remove the filter and get home. Better to circulate dirty oil than no oil.

I am not sure why there is so many people scared of these things?
I have had them in several bikes and have had one on my 07 990 sense oil change #2. My bike has 50K miles on it. The bike is on the original clutch and 2nd water pump, Now i have a CJ pump in it. I find it easy to clean and also see what is in the filter. I have a glass bowl that i put some gas or solvent in and throw the filter, screen, drain plug and covers for the filer and screen in. Then blow everything off with compressed air. The bike is running great and shows no sings of issues related to oil.
Buy one and never look back!

Pressure gauges can go bad. Warning lights can burn. I prefer to have 4 warning alarms than one: cam chain rattle, sludge in the clutch cover, low pressure light on, curved pleats on my oil filter, loosing coolant. Mind you, if SS filter is used and coolant in the oil is not too much, you get no chain rattle, no warning light, no curved oil filter pleats. So you are left with sludge in the clutch cover and loosing coolant only which can go on for a while, until you dive in there.
Cheers.

I use a Scott's, and my rationale is this: I'd rather let the engine run on contaminated oil than no oil at all.

Coolant loss in the reservoir (verified occasionally by a radiator level check), sludge buildup on the hex cap on the alternator cover-- these I'll rely on to alert me of a water pump problem. I'd just as soon let the oil filter filter oil.
