Most filters are fine. Probably the number one filter to stay away from is the best known. The big orange one has cardboard end caps on the filter element and not a lot of filter media. As Limpy said, Wix is excellent but nothing wrong with your Purolator.been reading thru the reference and faq forum and was wondering if anyone does or if it is ok to use the purolator one oil filter on my '93 gl1500?
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.I use the Honda Oem filter. There Cheap enough and seem to work well. A lot of people seem to use different brands but I don't know why, are they better or way cheaper? I pay around $12.00 at the Honda Dealer if I ordered online and bought more a one time I could get them cheaper. 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
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.
