Read the link below from the verses, the best source of info on our bikes.

WHAT IS THE SIZE OF OUR FILTER ?
Large Filter and Small Filter 20 x 1.5mm threads anti-drain back valve 2.3" O.D. gasket
Your Champion part number -F302 seems to be a UK number from my google search.

If the filter meets these dimensions and has the anti-drain back valve you should be good to go for this oil change.

A filter that sits vertically does not have to have an anti drain back valve to protect the engine. However most/all motorcycle engines have a filter that sits horizontally and absolutely require a high quality anti-drain back valve to prevent contaminants from flowing back into the engine when it is turned off.

Here is a link to a study on oil filters.
http://www.calsci.com/motorcycleinfo/Filters.html

Study it and you will see why his #1 recommended filter is the PUROLATOR PURE ONE, p/n 14610 for Honda, Kawi and Yamaha motorcycles with the 20 X 1.5 mm mounting thread. (Suzuki requires an adaptor as they use a different 20 X 1.0 mm thread. Full info in article.)

After reading this article, the Pure One filter line appears to be the best quality filter available for any vehicle I own. It would be my #1 choice in the future. :smiley_th

BTW, welcome to the Vulcan madness.
