Honda oil filter


Recommended Posts

I was looking up Honda OEM oil filters for the Bird and they are showing two different ones which I never noticed before.  Does anyone know what's up with that and does it matter which one to get?   https://www.motosport.com/oem-parts/honda/1997/blackbird-_-cbr1100xx/oil-pump

One might be slightly bigger, etc. 


15 bucks for oem filter is too much in my book, I've using Yamaha's filter on anything I own with two wheels or rotary engines.


If you look at cross reference for aftermarket filters many Japanese bikes use same filter anyway.

It looks like one filter supercedes two different filters, right?

Yup.  They're both the same part # superseding two different part numbers, maybe one of those was a supersede of the other.  There's a bunch of filters that work in place of the motorcycle branded ones.  One of the Bird versions, don't remember if it's the carb or EFI, has a little more room and allows for more options.  I used a Purolator PureOne on one of my Birds but don't remember which.  I think I've also used a Motorcraft, but that might have been a different bike.  PureOne (AKA Motorcraft) are great filters.  Motorcraft are cheap at Walmart, but they only carry the common sellers.  Last I checked the Walmart Supertech filters were from Champion Labs and they were pretty good, especially for the price, but they have visibly changed and I haven't researched them to see if the quality is still there.


Here's a list of options.


These Oil Filters
have M20x1.5 threads,
14 psi by-pass valve,
anti-drain back valve,
2.3" O.D. gasket
2.5" to 3.5" long.
If you have the room, I recommend the longer filters.

Purolator has changed their filters from a concave to a convex fitting surface, so they no longer seal on some motorcycles.

Make sure you only use Honda branded oil too, not some generic crap.  🙂


I used Motul 300V 10-40 last time.  It's stupid $, but the shift feel is so great I might keep doing it.  The oil looks and smells like no other, it's green and has a sweet fruity smell.  Tastes different after use, but still ok.  It does't mix with rum so I tossed it.

I would not use Walmart super tech filter in mcycle application where it is exposed to potential damage by running over some shit, etc.

The outer shell is paper thin, and it easily crashed when I tried to remove it from rx7. 

Seems like accident waiting to happen, literally, once you get oil on your rear tire you can kiss your ass good bye.



BTW, if you wanna cross reference car filter for xx get one for mazda rx8.
