Spin on Oil Filter for GL1200

Postby Richy » Sun Apr 04, 2010 12:37 pm



I just bought a really great 86 GL1200i, it runs like a top and is in really great shape considering it's age of nearly 25 years. Wife and I went for a ride yesterday and she is hooked.
I aslo have a 1980 CB900F and I noticed they both use the same oil filter.

I recently placed a spin on oil filter adapter on to to my 900 Custom. I bought it on ebay and it takes a variety of standard auto filters. I'm thinking of removing it from my 900 and putting it on the GL.
I just really don't like dealing with the stock center bolt cannister, spring and washer setup.
Anybody else do this?
Comments?

Plenty of folk have done this, usually by using this conversion by Randakk :-

'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!

That one looks identical to the one I got on ebay.
I moved it from my 900c to my GL1200 and it works great
