    Equivalent commonly available oil filters

    I'm about to do my 1st oil change on my '13 SE.

    I am trying to identify & select a commonly available oil filter to use.
    Ex: on my BMW K1200LT, I used a bosch 3320 filter, that I'd buy at Pep Boys for $7.
    So, I'm interested in finding what the good, commonly available oil filters are for the 1215 triple....

    What have you found, & are using?

    I just stay with what the manufacturers recommend myself, why compromise, they have obviously spent a lot of money in research and development.

    I've stuck with buying them from a dealer too but would be interested in getting the same quality items from a cheaper source,....who actually makes their oil filters for example?

    I know that Purolator make a ML16817 that they say will do it.
    Pep Boys lists them, but does not stock them in my local store.
    AutoZone shows a PH70.., but doesn't list the mfr.(fram?) in their references.
    I'm sure that there are many others too.

    Do some Googling re: concave v. convex plate filters as it pertains to bikes and leaking. Most filters that used to be ok to use have mysteriously gone to a plate that is convex now, and as a result they bottom out before the filter is tight on may bikes, causing leaks.

    As long as the plate is concave you're good.

    The TTSE filter happens to be the same as the Rocket 3 so that was handy...

    Not worth messing around with Oil & Filters, this is the blood in the veins keeping the whole engine healthy so I always buy the best quality original OEM.

    I am to understand that K&N makes one that fits the Trophy.  I do not know what the number is but I am sure that is easily determined.  Further, I think it has their nifty bolt head on the bottom.

    Ride safe and enjoy the Trophy.
