Just went to the local Stealership for an oil filter. They wanted $21.86 plus tax is $25.05. Are they kidding?? I think I paid $12 bucks for my last one which by the way was not a Honda filter. $25 for an oil filter??? Needless to say, I passed.

Honda's suggested retail for the filter is $13.87USD and as the Canadian dollar is higher than the US it should be cheaper here. :lash:

I get mine from the local autoparts store for $4.99.
Cheaper still if I buy them in advance online/Ebay.

Yep that's pretty much what I do.

Of course I have a 1200 so they can't hide inferior quality inside a can. I get to see the filter media before it goes in and when it comes out.:raspberry:

Honda dealer quoted me $90 each for timing belts. I bought em online, Gates brand, for $16 each.

Filters...a WalMart item...<$5
Delo LE...also a WalMart item

Why overspend...that money can go towards gas into the tank and more miles ridden!

An OEM filter from cyclemax is $10us plus shipping of course but if you buy more than just a filter it makes the shipping easier to justify.

For my 1100 I order them two at a time from NAPA and only pay $11.00. Kind of a fitting price for the bike I think.

Thanks Wingercanuck...great tables. Very useful..Went to my Walmart and they only carry Purolator. Dont even carry their own brand. You ever use a Motomaster from Crappy Tire?? Didnt see that on the chart which is all American I imagine.

The way I got it worked out while in Can. Tire by comparing part numbers across lines is that the 1500 uses the same filter as the 2001-2012 Honda Accord, so any MotoMaster for the Accord should work, I would think. But I have been wrong once or twice before................

I do have some Motomasterhttps://duckduckgo.com/Motomaster tools which I can throw in the garbage when they break but I would not buy anything mission critical like an oil filter labelled Motormaster, no telling who made it, maybe even Fram.:lash:

Don't anyone back-flush there used oil filters anymore?

Who else but old time farmers would know how to stretch a used oil filter. :2finger:
