The filter I just bought is a UFI 8-side filter
Picked up an UFI Guzzi oil filter at the dealer then stopped at an Advanced auto parts store for a filter wrench. With filter in hand, I tried all the ones on display and none fit. So I bought an expanding cam-like wrench for $12. It might work?! It works with a 3/8" wrench and looks like it might loosen the filter but because of the way the cam rotates, it won't tighten the filter. I know some say just hand tighten the filter but I like to snug it up. I can't get my hand up in the recessed area to grab hold of the filter. What do you use?
OK, so the wrench is not available in auto stores (same for the 10-60 Oil), has anyone used an equlivalant Purolator or Fram oil filter?
It depends on what filter you are using. A few years ago, UFI changed from the 8 flat to the 14 flat, IIRC. You may or may not have a NOS old filter. They are out there. I use the Bosch 3330 any more after having too many issues with UFIs. It's an ok filter, available anywhere.
Thanks for the info. I found the Mobil 1 M1-104 oil filter and a corresponding filter wrench at Pep Boys and it went on smooth. It was taking off the old one that was a hassle.
How about a screwdriver and hammer?
Good for removal - problematic for installation of the new one!
How many flutes on the Bosch?
Matching filters include:Purolator PL14476 / PL14477 (PureOne version, preferred over standard Purolator if available)Mobil1 M1-102 (I use these)Bosch 3330 (many Guzzi owners like these, often available at WalMart and other mass market sources)Walmart Supertech ST4967 / 4386 (these test surprisingly well)Where two filter models are listed, in general the one with the larger gasket ring is preferred (although both fit, the smaller ring may not seal as effectively).Fram is not recommended by most sources; I cut one apart and decided never to use them again.See http://www.calsci.com/motorcycleinfo/FilterXRef.html for additional info.
Will these filters fit a 2008 Norge with the 2 valve engine vs. 4 valve?
