Does anybody know if there's a Canadian source for HiFlo oil filters for the K100? $30 seems a little out of line for the BMW filter.

I use a local brand Ryco Z418 (~$12), but often think about the construction and design. I believe that the by pass pressure for Ryco (and many others) is set to 11 (or so) psi. That would be ~0.8 bar.
The original equipment I am told is much higher (2 bar?).

No big deal, except that higher pressure units allow more oil to be filtered and therefore less oil by-passes especially when the oil is cold (viscous).

Any comments? I am not absolutely sure about these numbers.

Hi,

Bit late but Hi-flo HF163 filters are available from:

Pasco Synthetics
310 Millway Ave. Unit 3
Concord, ON Canada L4K 3W3
Telephone: 416-881-3473 or (905) 738-2008
Fax (905) 738-4002
email giovanni@pascosynthetics.com

They quoted me $10.95 each.

BTW, they also stock the WIX replacements for the K100 -- Wix 51348- $9.20, Wix 51288 -$13.11, Wix 51785 -$10.95. The WIX 51288 has a bypass pressure rating of 30 PSI, the other two have 8-11 PSI.


Another source is Snow City Cycle, 1255 Kennedy Road, Toronto. 416-752-1560. I called today and can obtain the HF163 filter for $9.99. They can offer discounts on volume purchases as well.
