anyone heard of this? had 2 guys using the purolator filter, L14682. installed during an oil and filter change. came out to find a puddle of oil under the bike by the filter. filters were installed correctly and the filter gasket surface was clean.

both filters were purchased at wal-mart if that helps.


might be a bad batch of filters so be careful.

whats the correct purolator filter for the 1500?

gaskets were not on the block in both cases

Why is this in the feedback forum? I doubt Honda cares what happens with an aftermarket part.

I've been using the Purolator L14610 on my 1500 with no issue to date . I think L14610 is a longer filter, though that should have nothing to with it leaking.

were they installed to the makers torque spec?
Its easy to way over-tighten an oil filter- then the rubber seal gets squeezed and wont seal!
