Where canI find a screw on oil filter for a 1980 GL1100 Standard? I have read some post where some people have found them, and I'd rather go with one of those than Mother Honda's.

Thanks,

I thought you were saving up for a filter?
How can you afford this if you can't afford a filter and oil at the same time?
Maybe I misread the other post on it.
I get confused easily. :baffled:

I'm curious why somebody hasn't just taken a piece of hollow pipe, threaded one end 20 mm and the other end 3/4". You screw the 20mm end into the engine case and the 3/4" end accepts the spin on filter.

You'd have to look for the right filter diameter to mate up with the block but I don't know why this wouldn't work.

I talked to a machinist and he said this piece wouldn't be hard to make.

Just a thought.

Just spinning a filter on the end of a pipe will give the O-ring that seals the return side nothing to seal to, and the engine would pump it's oil out on the ground. That's why they make the adapter plate.

I must be missing something. The Honda canister performs the exact same function as a spin on filter. Both have an O ring or gasket that contacts the block the only difference is the standard filter resides in the cannister.

Several years ago they did make a spin on filter with the pipe sticking out of the spin on oil filter that would fit these bikes. You justthreaded it in place. It was expensive so didn't really catch on.

All I'm talking about is creating the hollow pipe with both ends threaded properly. The spin on filter will cover everything the same as the standard canister does.
