I changed the oil in my 2015 GRiSO yesterday. I had a filter I got from my dealer last year. After I had dropped the oil and removed the old oil filter I see the dealer accidentally gave me the filter for pre-2015 bikes. It is about an inch or so longer than the right filter. I put it on and it fit with no leaks (I was desperate to ride as we finally had a 60 degree day in Central New York).

Other than the possible catastrophic failure if a rock hits and pierces the protruding filter, oil covers my rear tire and I crash while the motor grenades from a lack of oil, will any other bad things happen?

I had 2 filters left from my 13 and I just used the last one on the 17 in the fall. I haven't had any problems with them, other than sitting a tad lower from the pan. I'm also running that Silkolene 10w-60 "red" oil that was going for 20 bucks a gallon a couple years ago from the Stone Pony and that oil has been working just fine. That was a Good Deal, bought 4 of those as well.

No, the filter will work fine, as you say the only issue is the risk of damage from road detritus. Flow rate is in fact higher but crack pressure for the bypass is identical.

Thanks for the response guys. I will head out and ride in a few minutes... it's back up to 60 degrees F.

Road Detritus concerns can largely be addressed by wrapping a 3" steel clamp around the low hanging fruit.

This from Wix re; the 51438 and a replacement Wix for late model GRiSO;

"51348 is a 21 micron filter.
57035 is shorter at 32 micron , used on Briggs and Stratton engines and Kawasaki Small engines.

Just an FYI, you said you think you understand why I can’t recommend a replacement WIX filter.
The truth is , because we don’t have anything that will meet their specifications and that is what you’re seeing now.

I would not recommend a WIX filter for this application because we do not offer a suitable replacement."
