I have a VERY noob oil filter question.
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.    Cheesy

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.

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.
