My buddy has a '69 Bonnie and he just bought a remote oil filter kit for it (looks the same as my Commando one). For those of you who have done this before, where is the best place to mount this filter and the best way to attach it?
Thanks,
John

Hello John
I got the idea on how to mount my filter from this forum.I made an aluminum bracket to bolt it to the center tube.Here are pics. I had to grind a stub that was on the lower frame casting. I hope it helps.

If you don't like crawling under your bike, there's enough room on a Bonnie to mount it between the carbs. Very convenient to get at.

H.T.

I'm surprised at you. I'd rather crawl under my bike, or at least lie down beside it, than to spill dirty oil all over the top of the gearbox. Besides, if you put the filter there, where would you set your beer?

Oh, wait. You were talking about one of those twin carbureted bikes. Never mind.

Many bikes and many years ago...but..I think it's the Norton kit and uses the clamp it came with.

Ray, warming your beer? I thought you might be English.....

Cheers,

Had to cut away a piece of the inner cover for it to fit, kept the cut out bit just in case I wanted to return to standard.

Been there for a couple of years and I'm happy with it. I sometimes get the urge to go slightly of road and on dirtroads and I like that it is protected from rocks and whatever.
Would of course look better had it been hidden away somewhere.
I mounted it using some clamp that I found at the hardware store.
