compatible fuel filter

Postby punch7 » Mon Sep 28, 2015 10:09 pm



The closest Honda shop is a ways off, so I ask you: is there an automotive fuel filter that you know of that has been substituted for the GL1500 fuel filter?

Napa 3003. filter bodies are a little wider than the stock size so the rubber retainer ring can no longer be used to hold the filter down but that doesn't seem to be an issue

You might want to look at the cyclemax website, they offer a good aftermarket replacement made by Big bike parts that is an exact copy of the oem filter. I have been using them for a couple of years. Very inexpensive and it uses the factory rubber mount.

Wingstuff.com has one that is an OEM replacement for about $6.00 plus shipping but, no shipping charge if you purchase $100.00 or more.

Those who say it can't be done should try not to interrupt those who are doing it.

I've been running Randakk's high-performance reusable fuel filter in my GL1500 for two years now. I'll pull it apart this winter and take pictures of what the insides look like. It does not need to be replaced - you remove the filter element, wash it with soap and water, and reinstall it.

The problem with ordering on line is shipping cost, on a small item the shipping can be as much if not more then the item. So one that is available at a local auto parts store is convenient.
Wingstuff.com sometimes will run specials and have FREE shipping on all orders no matter how much you spend.

Somehow I never seem to have a problem reaching the limit for free shipping.
You can also try and find other Wingers that need something and combine into one order to reach the limit.

very true. 1 place I used to order oil filters from had a great deal on a pack of 10 oil filters, so I would order a 10 pack and divide them up between a few friends
