Reuseable oil filter

Does anyone have any experiance with the stainless steel reusable oil filter
made by Scotts? I was reading about it, it seemes to be pretty cool. They say it filters down to 35 microns. And flows better than a paper element.

Thank you

I'm not positive, but don't standard cellulose filters filter down to around 7 or 8 microns?

no, really. I think they came in second to the Pure One in a test awhile back. while we're on the subject...the best cross-reference to a car filter I've heard of was the filter to fit a twin-turbo RX-7. Pure One PL14612 or supertech ST 6607. any thoughts?

I've been running the 6607 for about 5 years now on all my hondas (didn't fit my old bandit1200S).

Bling, the ST or the Fram? I think it's pretty much accepted that Fram car filters are about the worse. I'm not too such about their bike filters. We would use a PH6017A, right?

Well I had to change the oil when some of it spilled out as I moved it over to the new bike. Gawh....

Must be that 50,000 mile oil, run for 10,000 in one bike, then 10,000 in another, and so on...makes sense...

wonder if any numbskulls would read this stuff and think they could do that...note to self, must add disclaimer to post....lol

Those Scotts filters are great for scotts, bad for you. They are impossible to clean completely. I have replaced several of them in the last year due to the fact that a Hiflo costs $5 and the oem is $10, and it would take me an hour to really clean the scotts.

I was looking @ the scotts filter on line http://www.scottsonline.com/
the filter is around $110.00. I don't know if it's worth it. It's a lot of money
for an oil filter.

It does NOT fit behind the stock chin fairing but if you have a Dremel tool you just remove about 5/8" and the larger filter works fine. The plastic is soft - you could it with a jack knife.

That's the same cost as 22 or more aftermarket replaceable filters. Even at 3,000 per change, you'd have to travel 66,000 miles to break even. Plus, you have to service it. Seems not worth it to me.

Doesn't everyone save the oil out of their MCs to use in their Cages, or am I the only one?

YES, YOU are the ONLY one!

Tell me you're kidding. Where's the "laughing-yer-***-off" smilie in your post?

Articles I've read say MC oil gets serious viscosity breakdown due to molecular shearing in the transmission.

Dude, I know we all hate cages, even our own, but that's just cold.

I thought the clearness of the oil coming out of the MC meant that it wasn't "used up". Could my car have problems now?
