Here is what I have. I think these are accurate. There are 2 numbers for some of these. They are because the diameter and thread size are the same but some are longer than stock.

I prefer the longer filter myself. It's about a half inch longer than the hondaline one, so it has more filter area inside. I didn't have any trouble installing, but some people say the wrench that fits over the end of the filter won't clear if you use the long one. Again, I don't use that type of wrench, so I didn't have any trouble. I have a small strap wrench. I also have a Tulsa Belly Pan Cover and don't have a problem there.

Purolater - L14620 or L14612
Mobile One - M1-110 or M1-108
Bosch - 3323 or 3300
AC Delco - PF2135
Honda 15410-MCJ-000
K&N KN-204
Napa Gold - 1358
STP SMO17
ST6607 or ST7317 (long)

The two filters he is refering to are also both Hondaline - the long one is the one used on the 1500, the short one is for the 1800. Both fit the 1800, and the longer one has more filter area. They are the same filter that also fits a Kawasaki 1200 Voyager, a Mazda, and a Honda CRV.

Here are some of your choices:

These Oil Filters have 20 x 1.5mm threads, 14 psi by-pass valve, anti-drain back valve, 2.3" O.D. gasket 2.5" to 3.5" long.
If you have the room, I recommend the longer filters.

If the problem with finding a listing is that they don't have a book that shows the '06 GW, it's the same from the '01 GW on.

Most people are using the OEM filter or the K&N. WalMart has a filter (Super Tech ST7317) that has been given good reviews.

The board sponsor has OEM filters for $7 each. I think the K&N from HDL is $13 each.

Hey Mike,
Just get with Bulldog, he's a member here. He'll send you everything you need. It's quick and he'll give you a discount for being a member. He distributes Amsoil products that are among some of the best in synthetic lubricants and is a heck of a good guy. Bulldog will usually send you the ole elusive crush washer with an order too. T.

I believe Honda's wrench report for mechanics had a warning NOT to use 1500 filters on the 1800's. Why, I do not remember.

Why potentially void your warranty by using a filter you "heard" works, to save....how much money?

The recommended 15410-MCJ-003 (used on fuel injected bikes) will be the only filter to touch my bike while I own it.

I second that. Why fool around with aftermarket stuff? The cost difference is negligable in the whole scheme of things.
This, coming from a Triked bike owner??????

fILTERS

On My GL1800, FJR1300,CBR1100XX I use the SuperTech 6607 Which Cross reference's to a Mazda MX5 Miata

On my FLHR, R1150RT and Indian Scout, I use SuperTech 3614 which Cross references to a 2000 Toyota Camry V6


My bikes have used these "car filters' for a combined total of 325,000 with no signs of engine failure of oil problems..

At $2.07 each, I'm sure I saved a few dollars over the year....

Lol... How true. Let's screw around with the D.O.T. approved design of the bike, but only use OEM filters..

I took my bike in to have some work done on it. The mechanic saw the Fram filter on it and warned me about engine problems due to filter failure. He didn't recommend Fram. Who knows what he would have said if he saw one of the other named non-Honda filters. I said thanks, not wanting to get into a debate.

Now I've never had a car, suv, van, or bike have an engine failure due to the oil filter being the cause. Now with that being said, I will change my oil filter prior to taking it to Honda for any service work so that I don't give them a reason to deny me warranty work, because as we all know Mother Honda is understanding and has the BEST "stand behind the customer" warranty in the bike industry.

I change my oil filter at the beginning of Spring and every 3k after that. I'd be more concerned about sludge and thermo breakdown, then the oil filter.

I bought oil filters from Hal when he has the sale. Can't beat the price.

Thanks for the list of alternative filters, reg and long, for I am always misplacing that info.

Have never seen or heard of any such report, have used the 1500 filter for over 70,000 miles on two different 1800's. I have a Valk also and makes no sense to buy two different filters, never had one mech say to take em off or that they would not put the same one on for me. :biker: :biker: :flg: :flg: :croc:

Harry:

What is it you don't understand about the concept of apples and apples?

Your comment was pure cynicism, a thinly veiled flame, and contributed absolutey nothing to the posters question.

I wonder if you are aware that you just slapped every trike owner in the face that reads this Board. And there are hundreds of us. Maybe when your legs go bad and you can't 2 wheel anymore, you can be one of us...or you can quit riding.

Congratulations on your silly post. Nothing better to do these days?

:roll: :lol:

Ride safe
