Oil Filter

I believe this is our filter. I have not verified as I'm not home so be sure before placing any order.

Yamaha calls for 5gh-13440-60-00. Have no idea what the difference is between 50 and 60.

Guess I didn't read the whole thing. Apparently they are the same filter

Appears to be the correct ones. That’s a good buy too!
Thanks Rob! @Bucfan11

That's $9. each for the Yamaha brand. I'm using the same filter I use on my Road Star. I imagine all the Yamaha engines use the same filter. So what you used before on earlier bikes (when you decided what filter was the best) could still be used. I always question the bike brands since they just farm out the work.

The one I WILL NOT use is Fram. Have you ever seen the YouTube video where the various filters are de-constructed and you can see how they’re made. Fram is clearly one of the cheapest pieces of junk.

With my SVTC eating itself after every oil change and Fram being the only consistent item I am anxious to see if the Yamaha filter stops it. I am not a big believer in the "Fram is terrible" talk but I have been wrong before and hope that it is the filter.

I don't want to start a whole discussion on what filters are good and bad, so I'll just say that I have followed the filter comparisons done by many different people over the last ten plus years. I have never had anyone find that the Fram is not cheaply made and has the least sturdy parts. They consistently rank as the worst when examined.

Agree that Fram has a bad rep, mostly because their cheap filters do not have metal caps. That argument never persuaded me as the cap ends on those filters are made of a denser version of the filter material. While I am no expert I have taken filters apart and I could see very little difference in the quality. Now, I once had the same argument about the snake oil "Sea Foam". I believed the only thing it did was lighten your wallet My Wing was pinging at the time so I bought some to prove it was a sham. After running it all of my pinging went away and I'm a believer. If the Yamaha filter stops the noise my bike makes after an oil change, I'll gladly and loudly bash Fram filters. You guys will be the first to know.

That's a great price - I just paid $14, including tax, for one in MA.
