Wix makes great filters. I use the Amsoil filter on my 1800.

Walmart sells one where I buy my Shell Rotella 6T; but alas, I dont have the number on hand. I usually just by the Honda brand filter from my local dealer.

For what it's worth, I use the Honda filter and synthetic blend oil. I buy them online when the filters and oil are on sale.

Direct line parts sells Honda filters for about $8.00 each when you buy 10. I did that and sold some to my friends so we get a good price on them and we always have a few extra filters around.

It's the Super-Tech ST7317--just bought one this morning with my Rotella T6 oil. :)

Try Wing Stuff they have package deals. You can get one of their packages with wrench, filter, crush washers and new drain plug. They may sell filters in packs, just ask them.
I may buy the set myself.

Walmart also sells the FRAM 6017A which fits the GW's.
I saw that when I was in there but I didn't know the number--thanks--I've noted that. Both filters are a good value--I think the Super Tech was $2.84 and the Fram was about $4.50. I know some prefer to go with the Honda filters--nothing wrong with that. I just hate to pay shipping or drive 35 miles to the dealer for that stuff. I do need to keep a few spare crush washers on hand, though--learned that today. :eek:

If there is no replacement crush washer available, everything comes to a stop immediately.
So I always keep a spare in the waiting. After seeing I can get a whole bag from Wing Stuff, I may not have to go to the local Honda dealer for them. ;)

Hmmm

Please don't take this the wrong way but..... Your father is wrong! Dead wrong!!!!!

I have used several types of oil and oil filters over the years on all the different cars and bikes i've owned. Also have done tons of research on all different types of oil, peterolum based, synthetic blends, and full synthetics. About 5 years ago I found out about Amsoil products and how they were the first in synthetics since 1972 for automobile use that is. Over the past 5 years I have used Amsoil products in everything I own. I have had nothing but good luck with absoultly everything i've used it in. By far proven the best synthetic oil you can by, period!! And it does not stop with thier oil. Amsoil makes well over 100 different products! There EAO oil filters are excellent. They filter to below 2 microns in particle size, and 15 microns @ 98.7% eff. There filters are a full flow filter as well so don't think it's slowing the oil flow.
Bottom line is you get what you pay for! If you care about your wing or any other automobile you own, use nothing but the best! AMSOIL!
Yes it does cost more than your average oil and filter. But trust me it is well well worth it!

Sorry about the long post.

Scott!:D


My father taught me:

Regular oil changes with the cheapest oil & filter is better than the most expensive oil & filter that never gets changed.

Yep--fortunately my GW riding partner had a spare. He mentioned Wingstuff sells them in 10-packs so I'll get some to keep at his house where I'll be doing my oil changes from now on. ;)

I have to laugh--Oil discussions always lead to arguments about Cost vs. Quality. I see this one is no different. :D

Here's why I've started running the Rotella T6--data and not just opinions: http://1300tourer.com/content/commentary-my-uoa-used-oil-analysis-shell-rotella-t6
