Your Mom picks your oil filters tink..........
Now you've crossed the line and made me cry. I had the wife start picking my oil filters starting last year.
Wont work, we dont believe it.....
Tinkerwithshit, lookin for his oil plug...
this is how you check the oil plug...and the oil fluid level all at once!
Can we go back to filters please? What is exactly Honda's filter? There is nothing in the Owner manual.
I have a 08 VFR2008/A
I checked a few stores. No time to hit a motorcycle store, very far from me. They have Fram. Are you guys using it? But I am confused.
Canadian Tire said I need PH6607
The AutoParts store found PH6017A
The BikeBandit said PH6065 A.
http://motorcycleinfo.calsci.com/FilterXRef.html says I'd use PH6017A
I am confused
Any comments on that? Thank you.
2004 VFR800 here
I've been using the Purolator PL14610, chose it over the PL14612 because the 10 is a bit bigger; more filter element, though you do have to use a bit more oil. No problems of any kind, seems to be a very good filter. Usually get it at Advance Auto, when there's a sale I'll buy one for the next change.
I originally used the chart at the CalSci site to find what would fit, seems to be accurate(at least at the time was written).
I just changed my oil on my 2007 RWB VFR using the Honda filter, which what I always use. The one exception to that was the oil change prior (July, 2013) I used a Fram filter that I had lying around. It was for my 1990 Honda Prelude that I had sold in March, 2012. I didn't want to throw it away so I tried it for fit on the Viffer and it fit perfect. So I ran it.
I didn't notice anything different EXCEPT the oil was dirtier than usual when I changed it. My experience has convinced me that my VFR won't explode if I don't use the right filter but that the Honda filter filters better than Fram. But I already knew that.
wouldn't a bigger filter flow better than a smaller one? I got the puculator 610-3.5 inch one-I don't see why it would'nt flow better and clean better than the very small Honda filter. I am using Castrol rt 05-40w right now -cold weather oil. I am going to run the engine tomorrow and then shut it off when the fan starts. Adding the R+G slider tomorrow!
Not a chance in hell, too many smart ass immature young-ins around here!!!
I appreciate your input!
