Yes Thanks, I was going to post this link when I came accross what you had written, great write up. http://motorcycleinfo.calsci.com/Articles.html

oil, filters, fuel, suspension, just gotta dig around through that stuff, all good info.
I've spent alot of time over the last few months reading that shit.
and if you ever get to the page about fuel, it pisses me off I'm still paying 3.33 a gallon, this shit should be another .50 cheaper.

If you're thinking you want to install a PureONE oil filter on your bike, please think again. PureONE oil filters are designed for vehicles, not bikes. Because of PureONE's high efficiency, the motorcycle oil pump may not be able to handle the pressure. The Purolator motorcycle filter line is designed to meet the specific needs of a bike; therefore we highly recommend the use of a Purolator ML filter over a PureONE oil filter.

My response: 1) I had no idea motorcycles weren't vehicles. I do wish they would inform the DMV, who keeps assessing me a motor vehicle tax and requiring me to get motor vehicle insurance. 2) The Purolator ML line of filters is made in China, imported, and rebranded to Purolator. That's your big clue about how much they love you and how carefully they engineer filters for your bike.
I was just about to go purchase a bunch of the PureOne filters on Amazon and went to double check something on Purolater's site and found that disclaimer. Came back here and searched on "PureOne" and found your post - put my mind at ease - thanks. Part of being somewhat OCD is being hesitant to NOT follow manufacturer's directions...

I use a $8 Fram, and 4 quarts of $5 Havoline 20w-50 4 stroke motorcycle oil. Total oil change cost $30. I've used Fram on everything I've ever had for 2 decades without a issue.
I bought a junker on purpose. One day it'll be awesome...then I'll probably sell it and buy another junker. lol

Same here. On the motorcycles, I use the Fram "motorcycle" oil filter, and Delo 15w-40 oil, and haven't had an issue yet. Oil & filters will always be one of those topics that gets everyone's underwear in a bunch.
