He just because an oil filter fits the threads and physical location doesn't always mean its the right choice.

A number of years ago I asked the same question about my 2005 Honda ST1300 oil filter. It was then I was educated about the internals of screw on oil filters.

For instances did you know that there are bypass valves in most filters? The valves allow oil to flow if or when the filter becomes clogged so as not to starve the engine of oil causing major damage. Because a motorcycle engine is usually much smaller than an automobile engine and carries less oil the pressure at which these internal bypass valves open is critical.

Also there is anti-drain back valve in the filter on the DL1000 that many auto filters don't have.

A cross reference guide produced and update 3-9-2017 by

Oil Filter Cross Reference indicates the best non Suzuki filter for the DL1000 2002-2016. Recommended non Suzuki filter is Mobil M1MC-133 that actually costs more than an OEM filter.

I’m using the Wix filter. Had my oil analyzed and the lab said my filter was very good. It has a drain back valve and works. I get it at the convenient auto parts store near me. Fear mongering has no place in mechanics.

Not "fear mongering" at all. I use just what the motorcycle manufacturer recommends, order them online 3 at a time, sent to my house. All at a discount.
Use what they recommend, and you dont even have to THINK about it, much less fear anything.

You had a valid point on the bypass valve so I looked it up. The Suzuki and Wix filter I use has the same bypass pressure. Just saying.

Most of the filters listed in the hoggdoc's link I recognize as being intended for motorcycle use, and have personally used the Fram, HiFlo, Purolator, and Wix 51359. (Don't recognize the other Wix on the list.) Point is, they are motorcycle filters that meet manufacturer specs, so no problem using them. I go for wix these days since my employer started carrying them a few yrs ago, and I get a discount.

My Valkyrie engine is pretty much a car engine, so car filters work great. LOL

To my knowledge all on the list above are compatible with the OEM filter threads. The K&N, Napa and WIX filters I have used at least once, I now use nothing but the K&N 138.
