Fram filter okay?

Is a PH6017A Fram filter okay for a 2012 Goldwing? Wanted a Purolator but Walmart no longer carries them. Using T4 Rotella / Shell oil. How many quarts of oil (I know I could look this up but as long as I am on the subject)?

I used a Fram once and it was not correctly sized for my filter wrench when I wanted to remove it. A tad small. Had to jab a screwdriver into it and twist it off that way. Yes, I hand tightened it. No, I won't buy another one just because of that. Yes I know I could also just get another kind of filter wrench.

Another Wal-Mart option is the ST6607. I know many dissed at them but after I dissected one, I don't see any reason not to use them. I bought 4 more my next trip there:

Funny you should ask this question today - I just changed my oil this afternoon - and yep - used the very same filter you just asked about.
I don't have all that much mileage on the bike, only 110,000 smiles. Changed the oil to get ready to putting on 2500 more smiles next week.

I use Fram PH6607 on my 07, Not a coincidence that Super Tech, pn# is ST6607, NAPA pn# with a five in front of it & that is a WIX PN#, Wix makes NAPA . & most all filters are made with Dupont media. and most filters are made out of USA. & it's all good..

Here's a pic of said oil filter - with a bit of weepage that occurred after a pretty hard hit on the belly pan from a road construction incident about 4000 miles ago. Bent the belly pan, but the engine was still intact Took the pic after straightening out the pan.

Might be a fun "SEARCH" project on this forum for someone, as there are many photo's of damage to; filters, coolant bottles, engine's and belly pan's on the forum, and put them on a "STICKY", all on the same thread!!!

I have a couple photo's posted where my the belly pan got hit by what it looked to be a bolt and it hit it right where the drain plug was, and knocked it so hard it lost it's torque, and the drain plug came loose and was leaking oil.

Purolator filters are sold at Advance Auto Parts stores. Pure One, PL14612 & PL14610, ones a long one, can't remember which is which. They are rated far superior to a lot of others. Here's some good reading for on a Tablet or Pc .... https://motorcycleinfo.calsci.com/Filters.html ......

Amazon also sells Purolator filters and free shipping with prime membership. Was running a bigger filter but have gone back to a regular size. From what I've read Fram would be the very last choice for a filter. Purolator or Wix would be worth looking for. Most auto part stores have em.
