The PL14459 has a 3psi lower max bypass pressure that is more in line with Kawasaki, Yamaha, & Honda OEM filters. The PL14459 is a short fat filter. It is about the same height as the PL14612 but 1/2" greater in diameter for its entire length. This means that it will hold about the same amount or greater of oil than the long skinny PL14610. Being this physical size means it more easily fits more bikes and it is easier to grip with your hands when installing/removing.
