I need some help from experienced people. I have a 2013 V and plan to do my own first oil & oil filter change. I've done some research in this forum and Invader provided some great info on oil filters.
I also followed a link to the calsci site that had an article about motorcycle oil filters and the Pure One was among the recommended ones.
I was informed by the dealer's parts guy that my bike uses the same filter as Honda (did not specify which one), muttered a bunch of numbers-- 00004 it sounded like. So I asked if I could use the Purolator Pure One PL14612, and he said yes. At first he asked if the filter is a "spin-on" or the other kind, I forget what he called it.
So I have these questions:
Has anyone actually used the Pure One oil filter?
What year is your bike? I believe 2010-2013 are basically the same bike from the articles that I've read... (someone please correct me if I am wrong)
Is the oil filter on our bikes a "spin-on", and what does that mean? as oppose to the other kind of oil filter.
THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR FEEDBACK.
Lastly, sorry for my mechanical ignorance, but I do want to learn and I think I can, I think I can....
