Don't know about now,but Fram was supplying Honda with filters(spin on) a while back.That's why I never trusted the OEM filters on my Wings or my Civic.

Yes but they were made to Honda's specs, not your normal fram. People in the know still wouldn't use them.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

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

All it takes is to get anything that is made on an early Monday morning or a late Friday evening or Friday before a holiday weekend. you could possibly come up with a bad one

1984 Aspencade Premium Beige Metalic..... Right Wing
1985 LTD Sunflash Gold 85,530 Grace Brown...... Left Wing
A Bird can\'t fly on one wing
That\'s why I have three wings
And another 85 LTD, LTD 2 Sunflash Gold Grace Brown.... Tail Wing

With three wings I believe I can fly

I don't believe for even the slightest moment that undiluted Castrol oil did an 1800 (or a 1500) in.


I've used a lot of Castrol in a lot of vehicles, it's one of my favorites, never have I seen reason to doubt it's protection.

I had Castrol in a GL1500 a few years back, running super hard at 85 mph into a head wind....

the oil pressure light came on.... stop and check oil level. it was at the top of the marks.

let the engine cool 2 hours, and rode home at 45 mph for the next 100 miles.

changed to Delo 400LE 15W40 and no more problems

Using automotive filter in their bike even though it a perfect fit can surely damage the engine. The filtration of oil filter in bikes are more finer and can handle higher pressure compared with cars.
