Car oil filter

i'm going to install a new oil filter to my 08rr; and i've bought a bosch p3300; i was pretty convinced about my purchase since today when a friend said to me that it can cause some problems to the bike due to the different pressure.
Now, before order the filter i've check all the honda and bosch specs and both are the same...is there something that am i missing?
Any experience on using car oil filter on our bike?

It will probably be fine as long as the threads match and the seal lines up properly.

Why though? OEM, or HiFlo are dirt cheap.

Linky no worky. Just a page with no info.

FYI, HiFlow is a K&N filter in disguise. Best bang for the buck

Didn't see any 600rr info here, but according to the measurements you have a few options.
Scroll down to the bottom and find the group with your thread/filter dimensions.

according to this link the filter should be more than ok:
"Recommended filters.
All have superior
filtering.


About 2.5 inches long.
  • Purolator Pure One PL14612, about $6.
  • Mobil M1-108, about $12.
  • Bosch 3300
"
@NaturalPhenomenon: i live near Milan in Italy, none have purolator here in stock; my options are hiflow,champion, Honda oem and bosch.

^ that sucks

Just to let everyone know the 14612 and 14610 are the same threads. The 14610 is just an inch longer than the other and OEM filters.

I've used the 14612 for years, only thing about it is a much higher drainback pressure which may be harder on the oil pump.
