Purolator PL 14612 Oil Filter GL1800

Does anyone have experience using this filter? Is it an acceptable substitute for the Honda filter? It can be purchased at Advanced Auto Parts.

I'm using them on my Wing and my FJR. The 610 is the long one and the 612 is the short one, or the other way around, I forget. I'm getting them at WalMart. These are filters that WalMArt has started carrying since they stopped selling the SuperTec.

If it is a PureOne, I wouldn't use it. Here is the warning about that filter at the bottom of Purolator's web page.
http://www.purolatorautofilters.net/products/pages/powersportsfilters.aspx


What About PureONE
If you're thinking you want to install a PureONE oil filter on your bike, please think again. PureONE oil filters are designed for vehicles, not bikes. Because of PureONE's high efficiency, the motorcycle oil pump may not be able to handle the pressure. The Purolator motorcycle filter line is designed to meet the specific needs of a bike; therefore we highly recommend the use of a Purolator ML filter over a PureONE oil filter.

My last SuperTech is on the Wing and will be doing an oil change soon.
Since the one on now is short, I will be using the Purolator L14612...not sure about the difference in it and the Purolator PL14612?

I used the Pure One shorty filter, whichever number that is, with no issues whatsoever, but after reading the warning posted by Greg above, I switched back to OEM about a year ago. Why risk such a big investment?

Yes I have experience with the Pure One filter. I been using them on my 1500 & now for over 6 years on this current 1800.
The L designates Purolators White regular filter.
The P designates Purolators Yellow pure one filter.

Both will get the job done filtering particulates, Both are constructed better than the OEM filter is.

Purolator Pure OnePL14610 (Tall )
Purolator L14612 (short)
Purolator L14610 (Tall)


Here is a recent thread that proves there is no significant advantage in any of the filters that will fit the GL1800. http://gl1800riders.com/forums/showt...r-PSI-Test-Res

To say the a car filter should not be used on a motorcycle is nonsense. The characteristics are almost identical; bypass pressue and anti backflow. Also someone recently did a pressure test and showed that the PureOne was within 2 psi (2.6%) of the OE honda filter.
The link below is interesting and shows the quality and characteristics of different filters. THe Purolator PureOne is one of the best filters on the market.
