Like the title says, I can't get the Wix 51395 to fit on my bike. I thought it would fit just fine, but maybe I didn't research enough. My bike is DOA until I can get it on - I just cannot get it to thread. Should I keep trying or is this futile? Please help!

The correct Wix filter is the 51359, not 95. Take another look.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Yeah, sometimes numbers get transposed. It happens with the best intentions. It's a good idea to check out stuff personally and take messages here as helpful rather than gospel. PTRider is one of the most knowledgeable people here but we all make mistakes.

I had to track down my file of alternate filters and check twice before I noticed. I even had an answer written to check if the filter itself had a number as well as the box and if you had a way of checking to see if the filter and mount had a 1mm thread pitch. A second look and I noticed the transposed digits.

The opening page says there are 773,393 posts here when I checked and that's only the active stuff. Plenty have been archived or otherwise cleaned out. There will be errors.

Yeah I should have checked closer. Can the original post be edited to fix it, just so it doesn't happen again to some other poor schmuck?
