Oil Filter Adapter for VStrom 650
For 2012 and newer VStrom 650s and Bergmans.
This lets you use high quality oil filters like the PL14610, Mobil M1-108, and Bosch 3300. The stock Suzuki filter uses a proprietary 20x1mm thread, forcing you to use expensive and inefficient OEM filters. Our adapter screws into your engine block and allows you to use the new much higher quality micro-fiber oil filters.
About 10 years ago one of my customers, Gordon Bales, called me up. He said he was retired but had a nice machine shop in his garage, and wanted to know if I had any suggestions for a product he could build that would keep him in "beer money." I gave him the specs for these adapters.
Earlier this year Gordon and his company disappeared. I have no idea what happened, I have been completely unable to contact Gordon or his family. I have had several requests from riders for these parts. We have them in stock now for 2012 and newer VStrom 650s. In a few weeks we'll have them in stock for all other Suzukis. (Coincidentally, I personally ride a 2017 VStrom.)
