Okay, cool. The two filters are about the same price. I paid with tax $8.50. Pep Boys.

    From my perspective, the only thing that matters is the pressure the oil pump generates. For our scoot, it is identical to cars. Any car Filter will work. It could be different for other bikes. How many raiders are very happy with the K&N303 or 204? M1-110 and M1 108 relate to 303 and 204. The latter is shorter. I'm very happy with the M1-110.

    My mechanical experience and abilities are limited and you guys have really helped me over the past couple years do my own thing on my sweet ride. 
    Anyway, about the oil filter,  here is what the tech at Mobile 1 said. "It is a mistake to think that an oil filter is the best one for your vehicle just because it screws on and seems to seat right. He said the 134 is meant for the v-twin and the 110 is for a several different passenger vehicles. What do I know? Nothing, just passing on the info.
    The M1-110 will give you slightly more oil capacity, which equates to slightly better cooling.  The 110 has superior filtering capability over the 134 & the bypass openings are nearly identical at 11psi & 14psi,  it's all about marketing.  Hell, if I could fit a bigger filter on my bike I'd run that, if just for the sake of extra oil capacity.

      I use the K&N filters. I'm pretty sure it gives another 4 or 5 hp.
      I might add a racing stripe on my Raider next... should be good for another couple hp.  ;)

      Running an m1-110 with Castrol Actevo 20w50. No issues after 1500 miles so far. Just checked the oil the other day. Still golden so I guess everything is ok. Still thinking about Rotella T6 15W40 for my next change but staying with the m1-110 for the filter. Just under 10 bucks and can get it at Wally World
