Just as importantly, if fitting a return line filter. Make sure your oil tank is flushed out nice and clean. As crud already in the tank wont get filtered!

Till after it's been through the motor. Good point RR. Don't think anyone would neglect that, but then again!

I've been fitting a Paul Goff supplied filter, it sits nicely in the tool box with the pipe work being routed between the battery and mudguard. I have retained the armoured oil pipes to the engine and made return side connections with off the shelf 1/4" BSP fittings from local hydraulic supplier (Pauls kit assumes using new rubber hose to the return side)

Finally got round to filling up and testing yesterday which gave a nervous couple of minutes running the motor until oil emerged from the return pipe,  I had tried to get circulation by turning the engine over  on the kickstart (plugs out) but no chance. I had filled the new cartidge with oil but I suppose there's a fair bit of pipe to load up on a dry start.

All in all it looks a good solution to give improved filtration and is, at a glance, an invisible modification.
