OIL FILTERS

Postby Sally » Sat Oct 22, 2011 8:09 pm



I want your thoughts !! This is what I have found. I have been researching oil filter for the GL1800.I do not use honda's filter to much money period.So I been reading,finding using others.Here's the thing I crossed the filter to A wix number 51358 have used this but also pricey. So I took all the filter specs height,dia,gasket OD,gasket ID,gasket thickness,bypass pressure and micron size. Here is what I found all have exactly same specs.

Wix 51358 $ 13/15 bucks each
Wix 51365 $ 8.92 each
Wix 51356 $ 8.08 each
purolator pl14612 $ 6.59 each
I have been using the following for five years without any problems what do you think ???
Shell rotella T 15W40 $12.75 per gallon, filter lets say about $ 7.50 so for $19.75 I have and oil change done. you know what a dealer gets??? food for thought ..... Sally

I will be curious also to see what the responses are to your questions. I recently bought a Honda oil filter for $10.00 but the oil I bought was much more expensive. $9.00 a quart for HP4. Why did I buy HP4 rather than another high grade oil? This may sound crazy but I race radio controlled model boats. I run 26 cc Zenoah modified motors that have to be water cooled and run at RPM's much higher than what the motors are intended to do. In surveying other boaters on the forums, the oil of choice (mixed with gasoline) from the majority is the Honda oil. So I decided that it would be in my best interest to go with the Honda oil in my 1800 Wing and spend the extra dollars. Don't know if I make sense or what I do makes sense. I do feel better when I spread the additional cost over 4000 miles.

Thanks,
Al Waters

Well I will say I change my oil every 2000 miles. So maybe if I went the 4000 miles the cost would be the same. Which is better ???? Sally

Everyone has a different idea of what is good and what is not good as far as oil and filters go for every single vehicle on the road, I am sure, so what i use is purely my own choice and I won't even offer reasons, as most of my reasons do not mean a darn thing to others.

I use Amsoil 10W40 Motorcycle oil in my bike and Amsoil Absolute Efficiency oil filters. I use Amsoil 5W40 diesel oil in my diesel truck, and Amsoil Absolute Efficiency oil filters. In my wife's van, I use 10W30 oil and Absolute Efficiency filters, again - Amsoil, and in my Harley, I use 20W50 oil and Absolute Efficiency filters. Yes, Amsoil. I use Amsoils Extreme Gear Lube in all the differentials, including the Goldwing final drive, and in the Harley transmission, and the Harley primary drive gets Amsoil Synthetic transmission fluid as do the automatic trannies in both the van and the truck and the transfer case in the truck. I have a dealers permit for Amsoil, but I have not sold any except to friends in over thirty years. I buy wholesale, and I use pretty much all that I buy, except for two friends who also use it in their Goldwings. Did I tell them about it? No. They learned about it from someplace else, but when they talked about it, I told them I could save them some money, and sold it to them. Do I believe in it - oh hell yeah. Should you - that is your business. I will say one thing. If anyone is changing their oil anywhere from 2000 to 4000 miles and they are doing it within one season, they should never have any oil related problems with that piece of equipment. Ride on.

P.S.: Amsoil is more expensive than most of the products on the market.

I use a Bosch 3300 oil filter on my Goldwing 1500. Same filter fits my Kawasaki ATV and my daughters Subaru Impreza.

Dealerships here are charging $20 for an OEM filter and he wasn't even holding a gun.

A 3.78 Liter container of 10W40 Amsoil is $49 and a black filter for a Goldwing is $18, with a chrome one being a bit more.

I buy my oil where ever it is on sale. Its usually Pennzoil, around nine to twelve bucks a gallon. I use a Wal Mart filter because the other discount house doesn't carry one to fit the bike. I do the same with the VTX too. Two pennies......

I'll add only personal comment and I may be off base here..but.
I believe that there are 2 TYPES of oil..alkaloid base and paraffin base.
Each one is built to the label specs,eg.10w40 , 30w ,application , etc.
I have used a paraffin base oil in cast iron engines only and alkaloid base in aluminum engines only.
The reason is , a paraffin base oil reacts with hot aluminum and leaves a yellow film on everything.It acts like a insulator.
the alkaloid base oil keeps the inside squeaky clean.

Is that the price for a Bosch 3300?

If so you want to buy them here: http://www.autopartsway.com/?a_aid=3b7f ... d=47b067be

Part is: BOS1638020

$5.93

Get together with your friends and buy filters for all your vehicles and get free shipping on a $75 order.


PS - This is for the 1500 but likely fits the 1800 too but you should check that.

Sorry. I answered this without thinking, and the answer is about oil rather than oil filters, so I moved it to it's own thread, here:
