Well crap! I'll have to go look then.The new base plate design with Bosch and Purolator automotive oil filters may cause problems.
"The message below is what I received from Bosch regarding my inquiry about the filter change.
My name is XXXX XXXX I am in Product Development and I understand you had an issue with one of our filters.
First I would like to apologize for the delayed reply but I wanted to be sure I had my facts correct before contacting you.
You are correct about the Bosch 3300 Oil filter and the different look to the filter plus a larger (taller) gasket.
At the end of last year Bosch changed the base plate for this filter so it would have a better thread adhesion to the applications we recommend.
We only recommend (and always have) this particular for automobiles and not motorcycles so when fit tests were conducted motorycyles were never part of our scope.
There was a little more to this message but not relevant to post.
So those of you that are still finding 3300's with the concave base plate are obviously finding old stock. Load up now if you can find some."
Bosch 3300 Oil Filter No Longer Fits Our Bikes - Triumph Forum: Triumph Rat Motorcycle Forums
Do I know what I am getting? Maybe I do, maybe not. I do know the filter I bought today was not a cheap filter.Why not just buy a proper oil filter for your bike? Is saving a dollar to two worth it in the long run? I would not put a cheap auto shop filter on my bike. I use Hi-Flo filters and they are only a few bucks more but you know what you are getting.
Fram's Tough Guard, yes... 7317 is the tall version.I've been using the Fram TG 7317 or "some-other-letters" 7317 for quite some time, bought from WalMart.
If you think that is good, try the T6 5w40.Mobil 1 M-108 filters still fit. Put one on today with oil change.
EDIT: I don't know what brand of oil the dealer used, but there is a night and day difference after I dumped in some Rotella T 15w40. The bike shifts as smooth as butter now.
