champion also have a filter listed which is shown in the workshop manual although the part no given is a huskavana number and is no way related to champion oil filters,apparently the hi flo filter does not come with the replacement clamp on monday i will know if the champion does :blah:
I tried to obtain the champion oil filter through our normal wholesaler but i was informed that i am unable to purchase these filters, they are made by champion & sold to MV exclusively, that only leaves the HI flo option as far as i know, these do not come with the clamp, which the manual says should be changed, although inspecting mine today it looks in perfect condition :blah: :blah:
That's a cross reference page for motorcycle filters, so if you KNOW a 929 filter fits, there you go...instant cross referencing and some added recommendations.
What I do know, from R6 experiance is that Fram filters are worthless. Thier filter element is worthless, in that you can basically get the same results from running nothing. There was a HUGE thread on teh R6 board a couple years ago where they actually bought a ton of filters and tested them and cut them in half and tested the filter elements seperately....Fram failed miserably.
But check out that page...good stuff. But it's DEFINITE an R6/929 filter work?
a yamaha R6 filter does fit. i checked the flange diameter (the o-ring) and it's within a few tenth's of mm between the MV filter and the yamaha. also, the oil-inlet fitting is the same diameter, as are the threads!
clears the headers and is tight to the flange.
this is what's going on my mv f4 1000.
just a little update on the mobil filter. i put it on the mv yesterday. it fits, but i couldn't use any of my filter wrenches. i have two that are the right diameter. one is an end cap type which goes on a 3/8" ratchet. the other is a band-type, which works with a wide range of filters. neither would fit because of the clearance to the headers.
so, i put it on hand tight. now, you may think i'm crazy for putting an oil filter on only hand tight, but the spec is for 15 N-m which isn't that much torque. anyway, i did it. took it for a ride and checked the filter for leaks - nothing.
i plan to do something for a wrench - maybe modify the end cap one, or get a strap type. but i will continue to use the mobil filters. the construction is good, and i like the fact that it's bigger so there is more filtering capacity.
