Just an FYI, some research on here going back quite a number of years, member Chuck_VTX_F disputed & proved all those erroneous claims about Fram filters. Not much different than any other paper filter element. Sorry.Fram??? You may want to do some reading up on oil filters. I wouldn't use a Fram filter on a lawn mower.
2003 VTX1300S 41,000 I bought my bike from a dealer that took it in on a trade in. 2008 (18,000) one owner, who, by chance I met when he saw me and the bike downtown. He gave a quick history on the bike, adding that he was sorry for trading it in for a Sportster. It had AMSOIL in it when I bought it and it's what I used in it up until I did the last oil change when I went to a motorcycle blend by Castrol. I have not had any issues with the oil. This past week I've been doing a scheduled inspection (a few thousand overdue) New shoes and tubes, final drive, etc. This time I'm using Mobil 1 high milage 10W40 full synthetic, and a Fram filter. I did a little research, and I don't think there will be a problem. (Comments?)————-
I agree. Shell Rotella T4 15W-40 is hard to beat.
Dr. Dolittle. Thanks for the link! But I am a bit confused by the referenced table and hope you can clarify how to interpret the information.

Then the next column has "Recommended filters", but only one of these is also in the first column - which is a large part of my uncertainty in how to interpret the information. Also, the last two columns are both headed with "Automobile filters..." so I am ignoring those two columns. I think this means all of the following about the first two columns, but I am not quite sure:
