The shop should be able to tell you... Or you could always Google it...

Yeah the dealer should def. know without seeing the old filter. I've never taken mine with me. I just go and tell them make and model of bike.

mobil 1 110 or 108 will both work. the 110 is longer. they are designed for a few foreign cars but they work just fine for our bikes. they have more filter media and a metal endcap verses the carboard endcap that the honda filters to.

If you don't want to go to the dealer go to bikebandit.com. You can pull up the schematics on everything for pretty much every motorcycle made. I don't order parts from there but the schematic drawings are worth it by itself to see the website.

Who the F**k buys their oil filters at the dealership? They are a rip off there... go somewhere else & buy the *****.

I bought everything from advanced auto. I think the filter was PH6013, and the spark plugs were NGK CR9E's. It's not my bike, I just got it running for the girl so she can sell it. It set for a year or so, I drained the gas, changed plugs and oil. Then it fired right up. Just for the update for you guys. 30 bucks total including 2 20oz. mt. dews

I have since I read an outsider's analysis of oil filters. Its an age-old debate I won't get into but wanted to provide an alternate viewpoint.

If you change your oil every 3-5k then no certain brand filter matters.

I use Fram oil filters on my 94 firebird and it has 249,400 miles on it..... still going strong....just proves my point.

I've ordered parts from them. They sometimes take a while to get your parts to you. (2-3 weeks I waited...but I have an old bike).

I do. I like genuine Suzuki filters...although in the past I have used Fram filters from Walmart on it with no problems.

3-5k? holey crap! for a high rev motor 3k is stretching for an oil change. i change every 1500 miles and it still looks like junk coming out. oil doesn't even look like oil at 3k miles on one of these bikes.

read that above article on oil...most oils viscosity rating is completely shot at 1500 miles in a motorcycle motor.

also, after looking at all the info on filters, i won't run my stock filter anymore because it has cardboard endcaps on it. and i won't run fram anymore because i had a fram explode on me. started the bike up, after 30 second of idle oil started pouring out. the filter popped a hole near the end that goes against the motor...the rolled end. it just opened up and started dumping oil. talk about quality.

I've always run Frams on Car and Truck engines, and so has my dad. Never had a problem with them. And we tend to be rather hard on our vehicles. For instance, you wouldn't expect a '79 Chevy Van to do 80 on the interstate with a 5'x8' trailer behind it, and pass cars uphill. Been there, done that.

Of course, until now, most of my engines haven't run much above 3500-4000 RPM. Just have to see what the bike does.

ya, i could see that van doing that if it's the v8...we had one of those beasts when i was a kid! the VANDURA ROCKED.

i still don't trust them for cars, but there is a little more allowance with them i think, as they aren't a high reving performence motor. I just got super put off on them after that, cardboard endcaps and the rolled end didn't hold together on that 1...that's all it took. if i was rocking down the interstate and that popped open like that it would have been a nasty accident.

i just use filters that have a lot of good media in them and metal endcaps. makes me all warm and fuzzy on the inside

heres where the problem is, not everyone likes to change their oil like they should. though it is a huge contributor to longevity in any motor, and like you said, pretty much any brand will do if you're changing frequently, as long as its not going to fall apart or disintegrate on you.

I would call those individuals 'fools'. I change mine every 1,500 or so.
