Oil filter

I've always used the same oil filter on my LT and GS with no problems. I was at the dealership last week and they had different filters on the shelf for R bikes and K bikes. I didn't get a chance to ask about it. What's up here?

Re: Oil filter

I believe the difference is the length of the filter. The GS one is shorter.

Re: Oil filter

The GS filter is definitely shorter, and I also think it is slightly larger in diameter. I know I have to use a different filter wrench on my GS.
