I have read about 100 pages on this subject and I now am aware of about 1% of the opinions in this area but.....

1. What are the oil viscosity requirements for the 1300 (I plan on using Synthetic)?

2. What are some good P/N's for Oil Filters (Different Manu's)?

Thanks to all of those who have braved this area before me!

Owner manual says 10W-40 and Amsoil just came out with new/improved synthetic 10W-40 just for us. I just switched over today, put about 20 miles on after the change and could already tell difference. Quiter, shifts smoother, etc. I'm sold. 8)

1. Oil viscosity requirements are as follows (Most are running 10W-40 or 15W-50)

15º - 90º F - 10W-30
15º - 100º + - 10W-40
25º - 100º + - 15W-40, 15W-50
30º - 100º + - 20W-40, 20W-50

2. Here is a filter cross reference - I recommend the Bosch 3323 as a good alternative to the OEM Honda filter.

From the net
These motorcycles all use the same spin-on filters with 20 x 1.5mm threads, 14 psi by-pass valve, anti-drain back valve, gasket diameter approximately 2.3 inches, O.D. approximately 2.75 inches, length approximately 2.5 to 3.5 inches. If your bike has a lot of room around the oil filter, I suggest the longer models.
Automobile Filters, about 2.5 inches long
• Mobil M1-108, about $12.
• Purolator Pure One PL14612 about $6.
• Bosch 3300 about $6. About 64mm, doesn't quite fit oil filter wrenches. A real pain.
• WalMart SuperTech ST6607 about $2. Made by Champion.
• AC Delco PF1237 about $6.
• NAPA Gold 1365 about $6.
