I purchased a FRAM PH6017A for my first oil change and recently found out that it might be a piece of crap. I did some digging around and found an article to avoid it- www.twocreeks.net/toby/oil_filters/fram.shtml . Does anyone have any more info on this? I guess I'm stuck w/ using purchasing one from Kawi.Originally posted by Red6R
Although the Fram is tempting because of the price (and availability at many auto parts stores), I've heard nothing but BAD stories of using Fram motorcycle filters. It's surprising because their automotive filters are pretty good. I take any story with a grain of salt, but use them at your own risk.
I changed my filter 1000 miles ago and haven't noticed any engine problems. W/ that said I am going to my Kawi dealer when they open tomorrow and speak to them. I'll probably get a new filter from them.
I saw that thing too. SWEET!! But what happens if something happens to the filter? Is there some sort of warr. against damage??Originally posted by mdsuave13
i got the scotts billet re-useable oil filter, it was like 94 bux but its sweet. You take it off and clean it with carb cleaner and put it back on, plus it filters smaller particles.
