    Oil filters: Mobil-1 vs Honda OEM...

    Based on what I read here, I decided to try a Mobil-1 M1-108. Mobil-1's M1-108 is slightly shorter than Honda OEM. The diameter is the same. Since Mobil-1's is an Extended Performance guaranteed for 15k miles, I would assume it should have more and better filtering capability? (The Mobil-1 is $11+tax at my local Autozone if anybody is wondering)

    I think you will find that the new Honda OEM filter,15410-MFJ-D01, which I understand is replacing the old 15410-MM9-013, is also shorter than the original by about 1/4 inch.

    No bugs were harmed in the making of my motorcycle ride memories; they only got the snot knocked out of them.

    Re: Oil filters: Mobil-1 vs Honda OEM...

    I just bought a couple of the PureOne Purolator ones. I believe the mobil 1 are also rated highly and are at the very least as good as the OEM ones. Should be fine!

    A while back I came across this evaluation. The guy cut open every filter he could get. Interesting what's inside. Just click on the filter of your choice in the left hand link.

    Re: Oil filters: Mobil-1 vs Honda OEM...

    The new MFJ filter is replacing both the MM9 and the MCJ.Bad news is it costs more than the MM9 but the same as the MCJ.It will be the short like the MCJ which makes some oil changes a little easier.It amazes me that Honda took this long (6-7 years)to say that both filters are interchangeable,we knew this when the same engine was using 2 different filters just because of a year change.
    If anyone cares you can substitute Yamaha's 3FV or 5GH filter,Kawi's 1063,1066,1067,1070(shorty),for the MM9,I think Triumph too but why would you.Suzuki is different.The Honda size wrench will also fit the Yamaha and Kawi filters.The 3FV (3FV-13440-10-00) filter is cheaper too by a couple bucks up here.

    Re: Oil filters: Mobil-1 vs Honda OEM...

    I use one of these ones: Stainless Steel Oil Filters

    I like the fact that all the waste just goes to the recycling center and I don't have to keep buying filters. Also the fact that it filters smaller particles out (so they claim) and the magnet before the filter media sucks alot of the smaller stuff out as well. At least, it is always furry when I take the filter off for cleaning...

    edit: I used to have it fitted to my '98 bird. I had 194,000km on it and the engine was still running perfectly.

    Actually Stainless Steel filter is bad. You see that it only claims to filter down to 35 microns while a Mobil-1 filter filters down to 10 microns.

    Yep! They don't have a good reputation.

    Ah, you got in replies before my edit showed up. That'll teach me for looking at other stuff before posting an edit without refreshing the page.

    Where can I find the specs for the Mobil filter? meh, I'll go look now.

    Re: Oil filters: Mobil-1 vs Honda OEM...

    I have one of those from Scot. It's a very trick looking, but I didn't install it. I can't bring myself to sell it so I use it as a "metal sculpture" to compete with my wife's "katchkas". I just use oem's @ $16.
