The latest cross-reference I could find was updated in 2017 and it did not have the Triumph part number to cross-reference.

I did find that the T1218001 Oil Filter fits the following models: America, Bobber, Bobber Black, Bonneville, Bonneville SE, Bonneville T100/900cc, Bonneville T120/Black, Bonneville Speedmaster, Daytona 595, Daytona 955i, Daytona 600, Daytona 650, Daytona 675, Daytona 675R, Rocket III, Scrambler, Scrambler 1200, Speed Four, Speed Twin, Speed Triple from VIN 210445 and up, Speed Triple R, Speedmaster, Sprint GT, Sprint RS, Sprint ST, Street Triple, Street Triple R, Street Triple 765, Street Twin, Street Cup, Street Scrambler, Thruxton, Thruxton 1200, Thruxton R, Tiger 1050, Tiger 885i from VIN 71699 to 124105, Tiger 955i from VIN 124106 and up, Tiger Sport, Tiger 800, Tiger 800 XC, Tiger 1200, Tiger Explorer, Tiger Explorer XC, Tiger Explorer SE, Trophy 1215, Trophy 1215 SE, TT600.

With this information I would say the following filters would work per the cross-reference but I will not use/try another WalMart SuperTech due to the problem I had and the fact that the sealing surface on the WalMart had changed from it's previous set-up. I swapped to the Purolator One PL14612 but will check it carefully when I purchase a new filter this weekend or next week.

Copied from Oil Filter Cross Reference Oil Filter Cross Reference
These Oil Filters
have M20x1.5 threads,
14 psi by-pass valve,
anti-drain back valve,
2.3" O.D. gasket
2.5" to 3.5" long.
If you have the room, I recommend the longer filters.

Purolator has changed their filters from a concave to a convex fitting surface, so they no longer seal on some motorcycles.

We had a discussion, on another thread about Mahle oil filters, a few months ago. They also fit most Triumphs. Ebay and Amazon: $8-18.

update: I did a search for Mahle in any thread, and there are numerous threads/posts so it is not new to this group.

If you don't use the mfg filter, your bike will blow up. My Yamaha made 100k on a Purolator 14610 and then I sold it to someone who enjoys it past 100k. So never use anything but the Motorcycle mfg filter.
I have 2 words for this comment: "Weird Science" The fact that your bike did not blow up, does NOT prove that my bike WILL blow up if some other brand filter is used. Now, actual comparisons between stock filters and other brands - that means something (if the study is done properly). That said, it is in the interest of the manufacturers' reputation to spec a good filter for their bike, so that should be a good choice, but that does not necessarily mean it is the BEST choice. A filter that is half the price that does just as good at filtering out particulates is, in my mind, a better choice. I have seen comparisons of Mahle oil filters and they test favorably against the stock Triumph branded filters and other top quality brands for about half the price.

You will find most filters are made by the same manufacturers just coloured and labled different !....
But what you need to bare in mind is the oil viscosity thats were the changes are made , an engine that runs on 5w/30 will be slightly more dence than say a filter for an engine running on 20w/50 which will be sliightly less dence for oil flow .
So as long as the filter fits and the engine its for is running the same oil then there should be no problem .
