Title: I have a VERY noob oil filter question.
Post by TROX on 08/15/12 at 17:33:02

I was looking at Walmart and saw a FRAM motorcycle filter, it looked the right size, but I was wondering if all motorcycle oil filter's were the same size ? I didn't buy it because I've already found a HiFlo oil filter on Amazon that shows to be the right size. Just curious. Thanks ahead of time for any responses.    :D

nope not all motorcycle oil filters are the same.  Although the one on the savage does fit a number of other Zuki models.  Myself I would steer clear of the Fram filters they are crap.

agree fram = crap

but what was the number in case that's easier to cross ref

It was Model# PH6017A, but if FRAM is crap, I'm not worried about convenience, would rather have my bike running tip top. I read the post about the oil's, I might have possibly missed any oil filter talk, but is there a preferred brand amongst Suzi owners ?

Thank y'all for your help, I've owned the bike 3 months and when I look through the oil check Window, the oil looks clean, but I don't know the last time the previous owner had it changed. And I would rather change the oil and filter now that I own it and start putting dates to the maintenance work.
