Oil Filter Question

So i decided to switch over to the HIFLO-FILTRO oil filters after years of using the K and N 204 for my 2008 R6. The K and N worked fine but i have heard that HIFLO is better. My question is, since the filter model for the R6 on Hiflo's website is the HF204RC (the one with the nut on the end) does it rub up against the shift rod since the nut is sticking out? I've never had a problem with this using K and N but the dimensions for the HIFLO vertically is 75mm. Has anyone had problems with their shift rod rubbing up against the nut with the HF204RC filter??

I’m running the same filter (hi flo) and have not had any clearance issues.

Re: Oil Filter Question

Hiflow is a good brand. and if they say it fits it should fit. however I don't think I'll buy another one of their air filters. it didn't give me confidence it's sealing in the air box on my R1. it wont sit down all the way like the stock filter does.

Re: Oil Filter Question

why not just buy a proper filter wrench instead of the hokey nut...which can be a point of failure? Think about it for a second...

Re: Oil Filter Question

It's just convenient. Don't have to take apart the bottom fairing or unbolt the coolant reservoir with a bolt-on filter. (the coolant reservoir has a fascia that still has to come off) That might not be the case with the strap-wrench and the cap style filter tool???

Re: Oil Filter Question

I always put the proper torque spec on my filter according to the manual: 13 ftlbs for my 08. The only problems with bursting out of the nut that i have heard were with the K and N's. Heard good things about Hiflo, and like Intuit said, it's just convenient to have there.
