Can anyone tell me if there is an off the shelf substitute oil filter for a GL1800 andhow many miles should I put on the bike before I change to Mobil 1.My understanding is I can use automotive Moble 1 since this is a water cooled engine instead of using the V-Twin Mobil 1 due to less het being produced.

I use Amsoil 10/30 motorcycle oil and the short walmart filter and change every 8000 miles (once a year) I did change at 1k, 4k and 8k. This works for me, others will disagree. I would also be comfortable with dino mc oil and change every 4k. Stay away from energy conserving oil as it might make your clutch slip. Don

Oil is oil is oil is oil and will start a war.

But I say stay with the Honda filter. Forget the stuff about how better on is over the other as far as being a filter.

The honda one has a good strong outer shell. Important to ward off rocks and gravel and other such things.

Those others the outer metal can is pretty flimsy.

Besides you can buy the Honda one in bulk for about 5 or 6 dollars each.

Try Chromeworld.

The 1800 is my bike. The very best motorcycle ever made. I was enthralled with my first test ride on this machine. It is a great bike.

This will link you to some information. Don't agonize about price. If you feel comfortable about paying more or less for a filter go for it. The price difference is only a few bucks a year. From what I read, the walmart filter does an excellent job at a good price. I will cut one next spring and measure the thickness if anyone is interested. If anyone has measured a honda filter I would be interested in it's thickness. If they are thicker I would switch to the honda filter. Don

A quick check shows the walmart filter is 10 mil thick and the oem filter is 20 mil thick. I will buy the honda filter next spring. Don

Well we have the oil and the oil filter but I was reading the owners manual and it says to torque the drain plug to 25 ft''lbs. Is that correct or should it be 25 in/lbs. I also am going to change the differential oil to get any metals particle that may have occured in the firt 500 miles with Amsoil Sever Gear 75-90 http://www.amsoil.com/storefront/svg.aspx Does anyone see a problem with that or had expereince with this oil. I use it on my truck and the test results are great. The test can be found here and I was impressed http://www.amsoil.com/lit/g2457.pdf

Has anyone tried the Walmart ST 6607 (2") or the Walmart ST 7317 (3 In) size filter for the GL1800? The referenced Texas Road Ranger website lists the ST 6607 as the "The Best". These filters are certainly cheap at $2.84 each here in So Cal. Just curious to see what anyone's experience has been with them.

I've used them both, the 6607 on they 1500, and the 7317 on the 1800. They are both good filters, and have never had a problem with either. I also use Mobil1 4T Racing Synthetic Oil in my 1800. Shifts nice and smooth, and when I change the oil, it is still pretty clean, at 5k.
