    WAY! Your picture clearly shows the puro can is nearly flush with the mating ridge while the honda is not quite as flush. Since you have both, measure around the can of the Puro and the Honda and see what you get. Puro will be fatter. I didn't have a honda but did have a Mobil and the puro can was "WAY" (to quote an onl friend) bigger, Jose. I might try to dig the mobil out of the trash if it's still on top and measure. I'm not big on diggin in the trash tho.

    To clarify, I am not talking about the mating ridge that has the gasket. That's the same. I'm talking about the CAN, which is fatter.

    Even the GL1500 Honda filter can is the same OD and it has a better constructed filter in it too.

    Seems like Purolator knew what they were doing when they built the Best Rated Filter out there you can buy!.

    Ok,JosŤ!

    The Puro is 21mm in circumference. The Mobil is 21mm in circumference and the OEM (I assume - have not seen one since 2003) is 21mm in circumference. The Puro, on the other hand is 2.75 inches long while the Mobile is 2.25 inches long. What prevents the nifty wrench from fitting is the evap canister and not the motor. So it is of the long family.

    Grrrr I hate it when you're right. I was not aware the Puro was a half inch longer. I was going by the list I have saved on filters which lists it as a "shorty" not a "longy." Set those filters on the bench side by side and pic it. Puro is half inch longer.

    Now, this has guaranteed that I will never post in an oil thread again.

    Yup. I skipped it because I already did the oil change by the time this thread was created. My list delineates it by 3.5" and 2.5" and I didn't even know there was one that was just 3" long. Live and learn.

    No, but it might make the engine run "hotter" and the pressure relief valve inside the filter will open prematurely

    if you put a Blue painted filter on a Black Goldwing, it will gallop like a horse and if you put a Blue painted filter on a White Goldwing, it will require an extra 2 quarts of oil.

    This is comical. I'm not a mechanic, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night

    I would venture to say that half the folks on this board don't have a clue as to what oil/filter is being used in their $30,000 or more auto., but when the subject of oil/filter being used in a GW comes up the subject will go on for weeks at a time. Comical....oh yes, definitely.

    What's really funny is one of the so called experts who insists you only use a Honda OEM filter on your Goldwing, Posted that he uses a FRAM on his Toyota. (Is there not a word that comes to mind for a person like this?) I guess we got no deal with toyota..Go figure huh..LOL

    Personally I like oil/filter, spark plug and tire treads. I find them entertaining. Not one has ever changed what I use, but it's always fun to read people's reasoning for what they use.

    BTW, I bought a OEM filter from my local dealer, with tax it cost me $15.

    What is the best way to tighten the PL14612 filter. I cant get my filter wrench on it...
    Thanks,

    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

    No wrench required, use your hand to tighten....

    If you need help in gripping the filter, then this is the only tool required...



    Available at any Home Depot, Lowes, hardware stores.....

    I use my fingers to tighten and a plastic/rubber strap wrench to loosen.
