Hi there
I recently purchased a 1981 wing gl1100 and I was wondering what oil and air filters to use, such as Fram, Wix and the like. I would appreciate part numbers as well. Also has anyone used any "Unifilters" and are they anygood?

The old filter debate. Firstly I never use Fram in anything. Up here the dealers are charging $20 for a 1500 oil filter, and they are doing it without holding a gun. I use HiFlo filters and usually buy them here:

You would need an HF401 as an oil filter.

Otherwise I have used a Wix.
