Filters

OK. So I am several hours from any Suzuki dealer. I do have a Honda dealer just up the road. But quickly running up to 1000 kms and would like to change the oil. What would be my oil filter choice? NAPA is also close. And then there's Canadian tire 35 kms away.

Hondas use a different thread pitch from Suzuki. You can use a NAPA Gold 1359 from NAPA. here are other possibilities. Remember the 2 turns in the manual is only for Suzuki brand filters. Hand tight is fine for most other brands.

For better or worse I use the Fram 6018. Usually in stock at Canadian Tire. $9. For that price change it every oil change. 1 turn from seated for the Fram

2010 Wee-Strom 650A
2012 Moto Guzzi Stelvio NTX
2009 KLR 650 (sold...need a bigger garage)

Wera688 got over 300,000 miles on his Vee using Fram oil filters. They can't be too awful.

If I was in Canada I'd go with the Napa Gold, made by Wix. NASCAR engine builders only filter.

Whooo hoooo, my 2011 wee filters actually cross over!

The only other think that swaps over are the Barkbusters. Pretty much nothing else.

For those who would like to use the Bales adapter for the Purolator Pure-One PL14610 filter et al, the original V-Strom adapter at Bales Technical Service Oil Filter Adaptor will fit the Vee2. The OEM stand union has the same part number as those on the Wee and Vee.

The same filter fits a GSXR750, Hayabusa and probably a whole lot more.
