Oil filter crossreference/availability

Dealer has no filters or any info. Anyone know of another filter that will work? Anyone know of a dealer who has them in stock?

I'm sure it runs the same oil filter as the cbr500r? I'm guessing

Can't see why they would change it from the CBR500r. That would complicate things for no reason.

Any reason why you're looking into those already?

Probably break-in changes. I had filters and such before I picked up the bike and did my first oil change the day I got it. I took a back road home and it went up and down the first 3 gears to help get the rings seated (i.e., lots of compression braking). Then I did another 40 miles with compression braking in the top 3 gears on the freeway and then changed the oil at ~83 total miles. A new filter was installed. Modern engines don't shed much stuff, but you do get a bit from the transmission.

Around 83 miles is very different from what I've heard :O I'm a new rider so I really don't have any idea. I heard some guys going as high as 800 miles or so?

So I've seen many different break in rituals from many different people since joining this (and the other) forum...

What does the manual actually say to do, and what's the harm in simply following that?

The manual will probably say 600 miles. The term "ritual" is a great way to put it. Some founded in science, some in.... I read something awhile back about running your motor has hard as you possibly can for the first 300 miles and it will be the best motor ever. And he seemed to have his proponents.

Follow the Manual if you want your warranty to be honored.

Yeh it was for break in. I usually change oil right away, do 100 then change oil filter. Parts guy couldn't say whether it fit another bike because he had no part number for our filter. Hopefully he'll be up on it by Monday. I do engine braking break-in also.

They would have to prove that you didn't to deny a warranty claim.

My personal thinking for these modern engines is to use them but dont abuse them during break-in. It has worked for me so far. Some suggest giving a bit of a thrashing but not too hard and for sure not for too long. They claim this helps everything seat in fully. I do like the idea of changing the oil a few times during break-in. It is cheap insurance! A guy on the Burgman forum who is an engineer says unless the engine is designed for full synthetic oil to not switch until the engine is well used, 5k miles or more. Can't remember his exact reasoning but it was based in science and not just an opinion.
