HONDA OIL FILTERS, what is your story.
« on: 09/30/12 08:26AM »
Anybody doing 65 MPH  :17: look in their mirrors and see nothing but smoke  :36:..............then the rear tire gets squirley from oil  :4:..................and then of course oil light comes on.

Will never buy a Honda Oil Filter again. Then the tow truck driver tells me his story with his Honda 450 out in the desert and his Honda Oil filter does the same, WTH.

Never had a problem with any stock filters. Good thing you caught it on time, it could've been really bad.

929, 954, did the work on 2 F4i's for years... all stock filters. Step Father had a Gold Wing and used stock filters for years. No issues.

What happened?

Hate to sound like a broken record but like all the other posters said I have used honda filters for 10+ years and never one issue.  The first things that come to mind are:
1)What the condition of the oil filter threaded post and was it too far in or out(the post is threaded on both sides)
2)Possibly too much oil caused an increase in pressure leading to failure

If you are going to avoid manufacture oil filters I would suggest using either Purolator, Bosche, or Mobile 1.

Dont know about the other two, but whats wrong with Mobile 1?

Also avoid Fram. Any mishaps I heard in the past came from those.

Had one on my old bike, an '03 SuperHawk, then discovered the same filter that fit an '01 Miata worked on my bike, and cut my filter bill in half.  Replaced every 4k miles, oil every 8k with Mobil 1 4T synthetic motorycle oil.  Never had a leak, never had any oil burning issues in 45k miles.

No problems like that ever on my bikes or cars.... First I heard of on honda bikes with honda filter.
More details would clear things up...

But I did one time forget to put oil cap back on my bike and discover after 5 miles oil flying over my pants, shoes and some on tires, and I was in the canyons....lucky nothing happened... but still rode home with no oil cap on...but slowly....found oil cap in garage... good lesson..double check always after job.

Now my nephew did tell me he had oil filter fall off on his Scion TC,  1 block away after getting oil change at econo lube and tune... LOL...They redid the oil change... And it must be alright since his car is still running strong.   

Reason I do all my own oil change...especially on bikes, its easy...

Before putting on a new oil filter, make sure the old oil filter didnt leave its gasket. it does happen.

Perhaps you miss read my post but I was suggesting what filters "to" use instead of the manufacturer branded ones.  Purolator makes great filters at economical prices. Bosch in all likely hood makes the best oil filters you can get.  Mobil 1 filters are also of high quality.

Thank's to all riders for their input  :29:

Wanted bike at that angle as seen in pic to drain as much oil as possible, 6 hours oil dripped out of that  :17:

Will post pic of that Pile of #hit Oil filter later once removed, Oil change went perfect (yes the old rubber gasket was not there), put oil on new rubber seal, did not over tighten, did warm-up prior to check for leaks, it looked perfect to ride......................I thought.
