Have you noticed that anyone going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster is a maniac ?

Shit that size oil filter is used by most manufacturers.
Maybe you could put the word oil in the title?

Here's a list on the hiflo site. So owner can see what a 204 filter fits.
*****Hiflo do not have this problem as far as I know.*****

Just for you Duc O'il do it.

N.B. If you have one of these already fitted, K&N say DO NOT USE THE BIKE...change it.

I don't think the Hiflo ones will be affected Nige, it's a defective weld to the nut on the end, which is a feature that only the K&N ones have (I think).

Hi Rich I only put a link up to the hiflo as a guide for people to know what bikes could be affected. I'll do an edit.
Mell'0 K&N always makes me think of air filters. Must be my age!

Ah ok, I misunderstood your meaning as I've read k&n make hiflo filters for them, but to hiflo spec.

No worries mate, see what you mean.
I certainly wouldn't want to imply them as being involved.
Only post up as it's great site for cross referencing filters.
