FLO oil filter

I'm pretty excited about installing this. Who else has and uses one of these?

Firearms are like parachutes, if you ever really need one and don't have it, you'll never need it again.

I use a similar one from Kinokuni in Japan for (car) race engines. They're pretty good and have a magnetic trap built in too, I think...

Looks good and I was tempted till I read the specs just now.
I ought to see if the one here will fit RC51's...If too long, then I'll probably go for one like your's!

Thanks!

My worry is the filtration level of that mesh. It would appear that LOTS of contaminants and clutch particles could easily pass through that element and be sent to the engine. It looked more like a strainer than a filter.

Well, I looked up many different write ups on this subject. It appears that the common division is the filtration ability. Less filtration and more flow through the ss, more filtration through the paper. The people that use them seem to like them pretty good. I guess we'll see

Scott makes one too. http://www.indysuperbikes.com/produc...FQqQaQodUmYAxw

I have always heard they were not as efficient as a paper media filter. In my race car days I would run a similar type of reusable filter with a paper media filter. That system held 8 quarts though too.

In the race car days we had an oil sponsor and had cases of free Castrol racing oil stacked in the shop. We honestly changed the oil after every race. No real need for a filter when the oil never stays in the engine for more than a month or 20 miles.

Uh, yeah.....we are talking Saturday night racing in Indiana. A high dollar sponsor on these cars were like $8,000 back then. Oil sponsors....only gave you cash when you won whihc was like $50.
