After that crazy oil thread I was just wondering why every other modern upgrade is allowed such as electronic ignition, power boxes etc, etc. No one seems to be too much of a luddite when it comes to all that stuff.

My B31 has some "modern" additions.
DBD head and barrel with Nikasil bore, electric start, electronic magdyno, LED bulbs, 5 speed gearbox, Pearson crank/rod and synthetic 20-50 oil are a few of them

That looks like a MAP Cycle oil filter kit. I have one on my T140 too; they take trident oil filters.

Right, MAP Cycle. The backing plate is not part of the kit. The kit comes with two "figure 8" clamps, with which you can clamp the filter to the frame. But I don't have side panels for this bike, or a tool carrier, so I wanted to fill that space and hide the ugly side of the rear fender. My homemade backing plate bolts to the two frame lugs for the tool carrier with L-brackets.

The 6M (20ft) test. The only real stand outs are the front brake and folding kickstart
