Maybe the threaded section

The manual is very explicit that the threaded tube that the filter screws on to be a specific distance out; 15.5-16.5mm protruding. Page 3-11

It is very hard on the engine to not have oil pressure for the bearings and repeatedly trying things is not good.

It might even be worth putting the old filter back on if only to prove that the oil system itself is OK.

Another problem source for no oil pressure is a relief valve stuck open but I would expect it to manage to generate some small amount of pressure even then. The manual states that the pressure at the EOP switch (Engine Oil Pressure is my guess) is 13psi at 1200 rpm and 176F. Page 1-9

Finally, some filters have a neoprene flap valve to keep oil from draining back. It would cause a blockage if the oil on this engine flows through the filter opposite to what is expected. You can usually see the flap valve under the ring of small holes around the larger threaded hole in the middle. This implies that the oil enters the filter via the ring of holes and exits at the center.

Hope this is useful.

Good suggestion about putting the old filter back.

The oil light is a pressure warning not a level warning!

Hi!
Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner -
I bought a new OEM honda filter, put it on, and when I started it, the oil light immediately went off. I have been riding the bike and everything seems fine -smooth and the gears are actually much better with the new oil than before.
So definitely that Bosch.
You guys are all AWESOME!!
By the way, did anyone look at those links?

Thanks for the feedback.
Amazon shows the Bosch filter as "This does not fit" when selecting a CB500X, so I didn't check the information in other links.

Fill Up The Oil Filter With Oil Before Installing

The CBR500R oil pump seems to take a (worrying) long time to circulate after an oil change with new filter (suggesting slower oil flow, compared to a car); the oil pressure light stays on for a long time that is.

I found a cure.
Fill Up The Oil Filter With Oil Before Installing It.
I fill the oil filter fully, wait for it to soak through, fill it again until it is full of oil.
When installing, get into position, tip it slightly and screw it in. Surprisingly, no drips!

When starting up, the the oil pressure light goes off a lot quicker; 3-5 sec i think (i did not time it).

Did mine the other day using a HiFlo HF204 filter. No problems at all, just the usual couple of seconds waiting for the light to go out in first start up. Pre filled the filter a bit but not excessively. I bet they don't bother at the dealer when you are paying for a 'quality' service!

Anyway I can confirm that the HF 204 is the correct filter for the 500 series bikes, checked on their site by the shop.

You should use the Honda factory oil filter, at least for the first year.
Why take the chance of not having Honda honor your warranty?

I'll take the risk. Dealer is 30 miles away and local shop 2 miles. Used Same filter number on my Transalp for years with no probs.

Most things in life involve some form of risk, making calculated risks is part of life, like riding a bike instead of driving a Volvo!
