Re: [T3] oil filters... From a motorcycle?


This would be a bad idea.... the last thing you want to ask your oil pump to
do is to have to suck the oil through the oil filter......... this would just
be asking for oil starvation problems, and what would happen if the filter
were to clog up ? I don't think the filter would have the same bypass feature
that the stock oil screen has.... there is a kit for an oil filter which
replaces the oil screen, but it is not recommended because of this problem.
The proper way of filtering the oil is to have the filter located after the
pump, thus having the oil pushed through it......no starvation problems, and
proper operation of a filter bypass valve.......
