Oil Filters

I need to pick up an oil filter today and being Sunday...a lot of places are closed. I Googled oil filters for a 2013 Honda Gold Wing and Frame has a Ultra Synthetic XG3593A I can get today.
I looked in owners manual and cannot find where it lists the OEM oil filter so have nothing to cross reference it with?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks! Denny

Honda: 15410-MFJ-D01
Fram: PH6017A
WIX: WL10000

A few years ago (3 or so) I cut a number of competitive oil filters, that are cataloged for our Goldwings, open. The stock Honda Oil Filter is actually quite impresive; particularly when compared to all the others.

Here is a cross reference web site hat may be of some help. Be careful though. For example WIX specifically calls for P/N WL10000 but this web site not only does not list this P/N, it shows two different P/Ns!

In My Opinion if Fram was all I could get I would wait until Monday..... They said it "Pay me now or pay me later"
I'm not a fan of card board filters

What ever you decide to get, if not Honda OEM, open the box and check the base where the threads are, many manufacturers are making design changes and many newly produced filters that would have fit a GL and many other motorcycles in the past will not work now because they will not sea properly.
The specific change has to do with the curvature of the plate where the threads are, make sure that plate is concave, the change is to make that plate convex, with a convex plate, the seal does not contact the sealing surface on the engine properly and the seal on the filter will leak. There have been many reports of this over the past few years, I contacted one of the manufacturers a few months ago to find out if it was a design change or an manufacturing mistake, was told it was a design change, but no reason given for the change.
I use OEM filters as often as I can, but sometimes I forget to order one so I resort to the cross reference list, but I open the box at the store before I plunk down any dough.

The best way to eliminate this problem is to order 2 or 3 OEM filters at the same time. When you get down to one, order again.
I agree with Blueshighways. Stick with OEM.
The filter material and pressure relief valve (PSI) are what Honda specified when the filter is manufactured. The relief valve may run anywhere from 8lbs to 25 lbs, depending on the filter and the specific vehicle is was designed for.
OEM filters are only about $10 each.

Agreed, but sometimes I suffer from CRS and forget to order them, even when I use the last one, which reminds me , I need to order two right now, thanks, for the reminder. It is tough getting old.

I've been using K&N filters for years because of the built in nut that helps removal. They've changed something, that thing now rounds off pretty easily, going back to OEM filters.

Not all filters are created equally. Honda or Wix for me, just my 2 cents...

I agree with the K&N oil filters. Some of the auto parts stores in our area actually stock them. For the GL1800 it is part number KN-204 and is cataloged for the GL1800. I just put mine on hand tight, but that little 17mm, same as the oil drain bolt, nut attached to the top of the filter make it real convenient to remove. I've not had any to "round off" yet...
