HIFLO for 1200s... good?

I always buy the oem...but this one comes with a very good price.

Any chance Hiflo is the same like the oem one?

I can only give an opinion, which isn't worth much . . . The reading I've done indicates that HiFlo filters are of excellent quality (made to TUV standards?) Recently I picked up a couple for my Harleys (twin cams) and the packaging was certainly excellent (cellophane over the business end to keep crap out before installation). The external appearance was certainly top-notch. I guess it goes without saying that I noted no issues in the running of the bikes with these filters installed.

I'd have no concerns running their filters on any of my bikes. Generally, I use WIX filters (after much research), mainly because I buy quite a few at one time from the same source (have eight bikes).

Eight bikes !!!
Here in Ontario, the insurance on that lot would put you in the poor house as we have to carry personal liability on each one courtesy of our socialist dyktator prime-minister.

I of course carry high liability insurance on all of my bikes (here, usually referred to as $100,000/$300,000 USD), but no collision or comprehensive insurance. It is pretty cheap, maybe $42 USD per year on each bike. I would not have so many if it were very expensive.

Here in Marxist Ontario, it's $1500 per bike.
Most of it is liability.

That's just crazy! How much damage could you do to someone else with a 400 lb. bike

Sorry you have to endure that . . .
