Is anyone using the PC Racing FLO reusable oil filter on their Bobber? I like to change my engine oil annually and want a reusable filter but the appeal of the FLO is the better flow and screening features. I looked at the application chart on PC Racing’s website but didn’t see any bikes with the Triumph 1200 engine. Can anyone confirm that the filter (#PCS1) is compatible with the Bobber?

I used a reusable oil filter on 4 stroke motocross race bikes where we changed the oil nearly every ride.

In an application such as this, I would never waste the time and mess involved to fool with one. Oil filters are cheap and oil changes aren’t a frequent thing.

That’s just my opinion though. I guess you are being more “green” if you use one.

Hi, found the same filter at denniskirk.com and it says it’s also a replacement for the oem filter T1210444 which we use for the bobber. The T1218001 is the new part no. Hope this helps.
Many thanks! I’m going to give it a shot at my next oil change along with Motul 300V 10/40.

MX429 makes a ton of sense. I mean what’s the point? Engineers specify filters with plenty of safety factor regarding flow since idiots often don’t respect service intervals. Doing this could potentially turn into a warranty violation too unless you’re willing to lie about if/when the engine gets damaged.

You’re right Gary, makes absolutely no sense. [email protected] my curiosity! Good thing I’m a big boy and if I break it then I’ll own it. Just as with an ECU remap, gearing changes, exhaust mods, custom wheels, ...

No judgment here. I've done things to motorcycles way more foolish than this.

Nobody ever warned me though, LOL. (OK, a few times people warned me but I just took that as extra motivation!)

No offense taken... just a little ribbing. LOL. I’ve messed with most of the bigger ticket items I wanted so now I’m screwing around with the smaller stuff. You wouldn’t believe the time I’ve spent looking into stock air filter alternatives.
