Purolator L14620, L14622, Pl14620, PL14622 replaced by 14610(long), 14612(short)

Purolator L14620, L14622, Pl14620, PL14622 replaced by 14610(long), 14612(short-oem size)
L - standard filter, PL is the high efficiency filter with a better seal.

I use the 14612 versions, the 14610 is too long and a pia.

First notice of being discontinued possibly:: Dec 2006

(It is the one closest to 6:00 on the Water Pump - the only one with a washer beneath it.) Hold the bike upright so it all drains. I flushed it by pouring a little fresh coolant through. Clean off the drain bolt and re-install (9 lb-ft) with a new sealing washer (PN #90463-ML7-000). I took the reserve tank right off the bike by removing the red siphon hose (bottom of tank), and the plastic filler neck. Remove the bolt and it slides right out with the other two hoses still attached. Dump the old stuff out, clean it up nice, and re-install.
Here is the tricky part - refill the system (Honda HP coolant) and start the bike . You need to do this with the gas tank off and the cap off the cooling sytsem. I have a gas can with attached fuel line so I can run the bike with the tank off. Let it run for two or 3 minutes. Blip the throttle to purge any air from the system, you will see that the thermostat opened when the coolant starts to flow. Top off the coolant (bike upright) and install rad cap - dont forget the refill the reserve tank as well. Button everything back up and go ride.

Thats it - your cooling system is protected for another 2 years.

Well I went and got a torque wrench. It says foot pounds. but the manual, and you, say lb-ft. The default torque for a 10mm bolt in the manual is 25 foot lbs.

Are lb-ft and foot pounts (or foot - lbs) the same thing, or the inverse of each other?
Anyway stands to reason a drain plug may need less torque than most bolts so I'll try 9. Yahoo, first time to use a torque wrench! I'm bad now. Stand back.

Yes, foot pounds/pound-feet are the same. That drain bolt is only holding in water, not connecting a wheel it doesn't need to be gorilla tight
