Suzuki bikes use a 1mm pitch oil filter thread. The typical thread for other makes of car and bike is 1.5mm.

I have the list of filters that fit the Suzuki thread saved to copy and paste every time this question is asked. Be aware the Suzuki filter is the only one needing two turns after contact. The others are usually hand tight or 3/4 to 1 turn.

from what i understand even if car filters fit the bike doesn't run at the right pressure for the filter to filter. saving a dime could cost you a dollar..

Filters don't run at a certain pressure. Pressure differences are about when the bypass valve opens to let unfiltered oil through to prevent oil starvation. Plenty of people run filters along with a Bales adapter without a single problem. I put one on my '07 Wee at 50,000 miles IIRC. It has passed 126,000 miles with a new owner.

I've always used the Wix filter in Greywolf's list. No known issues.

Also available at O'Reilly's auto parts.

2007 Wee. Blue. Bought at 5K miles. Sold at 32K+ miles. Gone but not forgotten.

2012 Wee2 Adventure. Black. Bought at 26K miles. Now 43K+. Love it!

Does this list of filters work for both the 650 and the 1000 all model years?

Yes. Suzuki pretty much settled on one filter for its entire line of streetable bikes.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.

I've always used car filters on my bikes, if there was a car equivalent. I used the Fram PH6018 on the V-Strom, and a Mobil M1-108 on my Super Ten. So far, neither one of my bikes has flown to pieces like the Bluesmobile.

I use the WIX 51359 if that matters...... WIX makes good filters and it what goes on alot of commercial equipment and trucks. NAPA likes to push them at the stores.
