Is this the article on oil filters that you were referring too? If not, it still has a lot of information in there relating to oil filters.

I change my oil at about 3000 miles or a little more and the filter looks brand new when I take it off. I like going to the Honda dealer not for the filter but to look at the New Wings. They always have used bike's from trade in's so it gives me a chance to look at a few newer bike's, then I get on my 93 wing and head home. I don't think the brand matter's it just changing the oil that will keep your bike running in the long term. Good Luck Mantique
You know you can use the Honda car filter, it's a little longer but it works on the 1800. They used to have a shorter one for the insight but dropped it and use the same filter on everything. They may have came up with a new one in the 4 years since I retired but the one that fits everything from 88 to at least 2015 is what I use. They are usually about $8 I think.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

yes that was one of the links up in the left top under faqs it shows the differnt components inside various filters and does some comparison of element sizes. here is the other link more in depth on element types and what they do and dont do. i found it quite informative about oil filter. enjoy the read.

Yup, research and testing. What is it you want the tests to say?

They did tests at one time that put a positive spin on lead paint and asbestos dry wall.

Sorry, not arguing, but pointing out the fact that such studies may be biased.

I use wix filters when I can. I used them on my '99GL1500 but switched back to OEM because the handy aluminium oil filter wrench doesn't work well on the wix and the wrench makes the whole process much easier. I just look online for a quantity deal on OEM and buy a pallet of them.
