Show Chrome oil filter wrench 28-2587

Postby tcryder » Tue May 03, 2016 8:42 pm



I bought the Show Chrome oil filter wrench so I wouldn't have to remove lower cowl. It worked great on the Emgo oil filter I removed.. I screwed the new Fram oil filter on and attempted to tighten the filter and it would not fit on the filter! That will be the last Fram I will use! I had to remove the cowl and tighten with my cup filter wrench on a ratchet. Just for your information. I used Quick Silver 20w50 full syn 3.5 quarts from Walmart. Hopes this will help someone out there! tcryder.

Probably just as well you aren't using the Fram - they're pretty much the worst oil filter you can buy nowadays. The wrench is designed to fit the OEM Honda filter, and it does fit it very well.

Incidentally, the 20W50 is bit high in viscosity for the GL1500 in anything other than HOT weather. I use 10W40 in my GL1500, which is just about right. Anything lower than about 40F, and 20W50 will be too viscous for the valve lash adjusters to pump up, and you'll end up with more wear in the engine until it warms up.

Just an also something here.....It is usually advised to only hand tighten the oil filter. That is all I do and it seems to work just fine and is easy to remove next oil change.

Thanks for the info. I will change to a lower weight oil and different filter next change. I heard that a lot of Wings are using. T6 Rotella 15w40 oil.

I have a regular band type auto filter wrench that I have used on all my golds, 1800 and 1500 and it works fine and I do not have to take the lower cowl off, the band wrench slides right over the filter.

Couldnt agree more on Fram filters. By the way, you can also find Mobil -1 15W50 full synthetic at wally world. Probably the best oil I have used. Formally used Rotella T-6 but this makes shifting much smoother on my bikes.

I have used Mobil 1 full synthetic 10W40 "High Mileage" in my GL1500 for years, and it is fantastic - smooth shifting, excellent lubrication, no friction modifiers to damage your wet clutch. It can also be found at Wal-Mart.

I used the Rotella T6 Full Synthetic rated oil for nearly 100,000 miles on my '96
It was still operating well when I sold her and fully expect it to reach 200K or more.
Now I am using it on my 1800 -
I have had the oil analyzed at Blackstone labs twice and each time it comes back with good reports.
Once with about 4000 miles on the use and once with near 6500 miles.
I use the Rotella T6 because I can get it at Wal*mart , and buy the filter at the same time for around $25
It is easy to remember when to change it as I do it every 5000 miles on the odometer +/- a little ..
