Lightweight Oil Filters

Postby Martin.S » Mon May 13, 2019 7:30 am

I see that the club are now listing the long mesh filter but is there an update on the sourcing the long felt filters?

Whist talking of filters what is the difference between the H/weight and the L/Weight filters - are they adaptable?

no Paul , it is only the mesh innards of the felt filter that we are using.

gives it a basic filtering process as our felt filter was restricting it too much - I am trying to source the right combination of long/short springs and filters , but at least we can ride the bike without it wet sumping due to restricted scavenging.
