I’ve searched this forum and Google with no luck. I’ve found cross-references but none that included the 1250 Bandit. I’m partial to Mobile1 oil filters. Does anyone know which Mobile1 oil filter will fit the 1250 Bandit?

Thanks, Ol Dave

I ran the K&N 138 - so searching for a cross reference to that filter may help - although I looked and found a bunch but not a Mobile 1. The K&N has a thread pitch a bit different from the stock filter for the 1250, but it fit beautifully anyway.

Sorry for the lack of info, but it's a start.

Note that M1 and K/N are identical except for the exterior nut, and price.

Thanks for the info everyone. I'll take a look at these sites and maybe try to spell Mobile1 right "Mobil1" - :-P (I'm not a good speller) . I've been using the OEM filter which I'm sure is just fine. BTW: It's 6AM on a beautiful Sunday right now (58 degrees) and I'm headed out for a 100-mile ride on some winding farm-to-market roads just north of Dallas Ė right after I set out the Momís day flowers and cards; priorities you know !!! :sun:

Regards,

Ol Dave

i thought it appropriate, to post these links about oil, here on the oil filter thread, as some of it mentions some oil containing moly, which would be filtered out by the oil filter. royal purple was the oil in question.

http://www.performancemotoroil.com/Royal_Purple_info.html

i would think that $16 a qt, i would simply buy something off the shelf at walmart and change it often.
such as mobil one, wich is $13 for 5 qts, and is the non engergy conserving oil, the type reccommended in the suzuki service manual.

The Mobil 1 is good stuff...Here's a virgin oil analysis of the additives in the silver cap 15W50....The antiwear additive levels are higher than alot of the expensive motorcycle specific oils and it is a full synthetic non energy concerving oil at a very decent price....It has a little moly in it but not enough to be concerned about...Mobil's motorcycle oil has about the same amount of moly in it as well.

"Here's a VOA provided by CTC Analytical Services of Phoenix, AZ and reported in a recent issue of Full Throttle magazine:

Boron: 228ppm
Sodium: 13ppm
Magnesium: 43ppm
Calcium: 2464ppm
Phosphorus: 1193ppm
Zinc: 1315ppm
Molybdenum: 90ppm"

Looking to go get oil/filter at lunch and trying to avoid the dealer for a filter. Anyone have any others other than the K&N138 posted above?

From that link it reads funny to me.
These Oil Filters
have 20 x 1mm threads,
11 psi by-pass valve,
anti-drain back valve.

None are recommended.

This is a proprietary Suzuki
thread, and no high performance
filters are made for 20mmx1mm
threads.

Then it goes on to list filters :huh: :shrug:
Available filters include:

* AMSOil SMF 109
* Bike Master 314-0025
* Champion PH7016
* Cycle Power 314-1919
* Emgo 10-55662
* Emgo 10-55660
* Fram PH6018
* Hi-Flo HF138
* J.C.Whitney ZX063166P
* K&N 138
* NAPA 1359 / WIX 51359
* Parts Unlimited
* Per-Form J-509
* ProPart 01-0029
* Purolator ML16818
* STP SMO-18
* Suzuki 16510-03G00-X07
* VESRAH vsf-3009

Hoping Advanced has a Purolater, I prefer NAPA/WIX, but the NAPA here has nothing and there is no Oriley's which carries WIX. Smaller cities bring the suck at times.

I know what oils filters I like to buy, that's a broke record.

I just need a X-ref for non OEM filters and wondering if the list I found is legit. There is not a lot of room there and any taller than OEM and it'd be a fight to get something else in there.

I don't see a Mobil1 filter that will fit.

No filters matching above at Advance Auto and I found an O'reily's. Didn't check vato zone. So I went to the dealer and got lubed up. $10 filter and $10/qt. sythetic. Should have just went with syn. Rotella again. I may return it.

So the Purolator ML16818 will work on the Bandit 1250 ? I'd like to compare the specs because a wrong filter can do damage.

I'd be letting you know tonight, but nobody had squat for filters in stock here and I am not ordering a filter.

I run wix/napa/purolator when I can. All I have read and been told they are very similar and top of the flock.

Hi,
I think the Bandit uses the same filter as the V Strom. There isn't any Mobil One Filter to fit a Bandit or V Strom. I made a posting on Stromtroopers about this after seeing a special at Advanced Auto Parts. Mobil One has a hotline.



Good Luck,
Les

wal-mart has mobil 1 at $22 for 5 qt? someone should combine this filter thread with the oil thread....

Walmart's in Houston don't seem to have 10-40 Mobil one syn except for high mileage engines.

sorry about that, i only assume what i have to choose from, other do too. we have 2 locally, one is a super wal-mart, and has more than twice the choices available at the oil rack shelves, than the other store.

I been using mobil 1, 15-50 SM/CF, non energy conserving.
whether thats the best choice or not is being discussed in the oil thread.

it may not be what others may choose, its just my choice.

but like so many of my tire choices, i have used other kinds.

The Mobil 1 15W50 an excellent oil...I've used it in my old RC51...The temps in Texas are getting really hot and I may be switching to this oil soon.

For the price you can't beat it considering it's likely the same base oil being used in Amsoil...And it has a healthy amount of antiwear additives as well.

The worst bit is that the oils do not translate "across the pond" some of the oils mentioned in these threads do not exist in Australia.
