Oil Filter change?

What year did they change the oil filter from course thread to fine thread?

They have not. DL650's 2004 to 2016, and presumably 2017 as well use the very same oil filter.

I got an after market filter that would not spin on the threads. Got it at the local shop. Took it back and they swapped it with another filter out of the same drawer and that worked fine.
Goofs can happen.

Well, maybe I had one of those 'bad' ones. I have another, both were left over from selling my DL and my SV but when we went to use one on a friend's Glee, it had course threads and the old one had fine. I'll check the remaining left over and see what we have there.
