I saw this video recently on adding an aftermarket oil filter adapter to my motorcycle. Are there any downsides to using this type of product? Should I have a concern about using a car oil filter on my bike? If so, please specify the possible negative impact.
An FYI it is a very bad idea to use automobile oil in your motorcycle. The reason behind this is because auto oil often has additives in it that when used in a motorcycle with a wet clutch (which most do) will wreak havoc on your clutch.
Given that, auto oil filters may be comprised of more fibers/elements that can perhaps cause higher/lower oil pressures in your motorcycle.
In my honest opinion, why risk such an investment like your motorcycle in saving a few bucks when buying an OEM filter?
For the original poster @Tommie C., do you know the thread size/pitch for the OEM Suzuki pipe where it goes into the engine? It seems like the pipe adapter from another Japanese bike engine such as Honda or Yamaha which both use the more common M20x1.5 on the filter side and have a separate thread (unknown pitch) may work for the engine side. The places that market the Suzuki adapter are apparently no longer in operation or do do not have the part for sale.
