Murphs' is extremely pleased and proud to now offer a spin-on oil filter conversion kit for the Concours, (GTR) ZX1100, ZRX, ZZR (and a host of others).
On April 28, 2009, the US Patent Office awarded patent number 7,524,416 B1 to Dan Bergmen in recognition of his unique design and engineering diligence in arriving at this final design! Murphs' is honored to be the sole worldwide supplier of this fine product.
This brilliant - and beautifully simple - piece of engineering design from Bergmen Engineering promises to greatly speed and simplify oil changes, the most important and frequent maintenance task performed on your bike. With this system you can now pre-fill your filter when you change oil, which means less engine revs with low or no oil flow! Your next oil change will be much faster, and CLEANER! No parts to reuse.
Machined from a solid block of 6061 aluminum to exact specifications on a CNC machining center, the quality and effort put into design and manufacturing is obvious. The oil stud is machined from chrome moly alloy stock, and all threads are tested on certified thread gauges. The photos shown here do far more justice in demonstrating the detailed and professional finish of the product than any words could hope to achieve. The appearance belies the functionality as well. Careful consideration to flow rates, pressure, and filtering capacity are just a few areas given critical analysis during the design phase. To date, (December 10th 2005) more than 125,000 problem-free miles have been logged on prototype AND production units. This product has been developed based on years of expertise in the motorcycle product industry, along with years of expertise in the filtering industry. That expertise, combined with Murphs' reputation for quality products and service, guarantees your satisfaction!
The installation of the adapter is simple. A specialized oil filter cup wrench, included with the kit, and a 17mm socket, are all you need. Full instructions are included. For future filter changes you will use the cup wrench to quickly spin off and spin on the same type of oil filters used in many other motorcycle makes and models, not to mention most cars and light trucks.
Get yourself a package of the oil drain plug gaskets while you're at it.
As with any after-market motorcycle accessory, the buyer assumes a certain amount of risk when choosing to use this product. This product is backed by Murphs' longstanding reputation as a provider of high quality products for the motorcycling enthusiast, and continues Murphs' commitment to offering nothing less than the best in quality and service.
