That Morgo filter looks like a nice bit of kit.....Anybody know what the swivel fitting is for or how it fixes to the frame? ?
enquiring minds would like to know  *eek*

I have one of these little critters, pictured below, fitted on my B series......works well and the filter elements are from Honda dirt bike so easy to get replacements...my plumbing is a bit messy but the filter works well..

I thought about the Hi di Hi  but the measurements (kindly supplied by  a101960, thanks again John) meant it wouldn't go where I wanted to put it so I had another think and found room for the filter and a Cyclone battery in the battery compartment.

Some (further) modification of the oil tank breather is required as the sharp eyed will have seen, the tabs on the front of the battery carrier/ air filter fixing plate were bent up straight and a stiff metal plate drilled to carry the filter head, so easy removal just slacken the two studs and it lifts up and off,
I'll use an electronic regulator as well so I'll have the whole toolbox for storage

I have just fitted a Morgo Filter to replace the Norton type that was fitted.
The Norton unit was springing the toolbox lid, and does take up a lot of the available space in there.
The Morgo is on the expensive side, but is a beautifully made item. It is light weight, and fixes with a single 6mm set screw. It has two rat tail pipe connectors as standard, with optional extra banjo fittings. Filters are readily available (HF197), and nicely compact.
I ordered mine around 2pm Wednesday, it was delivered by lunch time Thursday.

Just come across a smaller cartridge oil filter made by Morgo:

Not cheap at £65.  Has anyone used it?

Also, here are details of the Hi-De-Hi filter:

The hi de hi does look the go for plunger frames and I certainly recognize the A75 filter that it uses!
On my swing arm and my race rigid, I've plumbed in proper filters in the tool box and underneath respectively, chromed for maximum bling effect.

Hi, BSA Bill, I have just been  looking at some of your equivalent oil filter numbers as I have just fitted one to my A7, the filter supplied with the kit was a champion H101 and I can't find a equivalent for that (or at least one that is at a reasonable price) the Wix number in the list appears to be wrong I think it might be a Wix 51352? the Wix web sight wont recognise the Champion H101 so I'm sure if it is right, the specs seem to be ok but I didn't check the thread size before I screwed it on & don't feel like screwing it of just now as it would make a  B mess & wast a lot of oil!  *eek* maybe some one can put me right on this.
I have attached a pic of where I have mounted it.
Cheers
Peter

Hiflo Filtro HF153 or K&N KN153 Ducati filters fit those filter heads.

Hi BSA Bill, If you go into www.wixfilters.com/ and type in WL7101 it will through up the Wix 51352 so I suspect this the same filter dose that make sense?

Hi Peter - yes go it , have removed from the list to prevent confusion.
Don't know why I didn't see it on there last time, I'm due the optician soon - might explain it.

Do like the look of the Morgo, funds are tight at the mo but I'm rewiring the RGF this year so maybe a good time to fit one (old Ernie just popped another £25 through my letter box this month if he can manage another couple would be nice)
