I've been using Pureolator Pure One Filters on my 1994 aspencade for four years with no problems and Shell Rotella T 15w-40 oil. Dont want to start any arguments about Oil or Filters but just to say this is what I use and it works for me. My Two Cents!

After reading way too many articles, comments, forums, etc., I switched to a Pure One PL14610 filter, and Rotella T6 5W-40 Synthetic Oil a few months back. I'm a big believer in synthetic, and the PL14610 is supposed to have a better quality filter media, and more of it, than just about any other filter. Hasn't been that long, but no problems so far. The purpose of the synthetic is for long term wear protection. I hear comments about people not feeling any difference in their bike. You won't feel any difference, but you may find your engine maintains tighter tolerances and runs better, longer, over the long haul. The T6 (according to my research) does not have the dreaded 'friction modifiers' that are discussed so frequently, and is therefore safe for the clutch.
