+1 on the K&N oil filer.... it's all I use. The o-ring is pre-lubed and you can take them off with a wrench.

When you put the new filter on, pour oil in the filter first to help eliminate the dry start. Many folks do not do this. Also, warm your bike up to about 130F or so before draining the oil. The filter may come off easier and the oil pours out easier, too.

oilfilterswrenchl

When putting the new oil in, the proper way to check the oil is: Warm the bike up to 165F, turn it off and let it set for a couple minutes, then check the site glass or dipstick. Don't do it cold like you see people doing it.

And on the 1000RR don't screw the dip stick in to check the level. Just seat it

I like Fram because it has that rough on the outside that doesn't get oily/slippery. Probably not the best filter out there but that coating makes it easy to get it off and on with man hands.

possibly the worse filter ever made. Even Walmart filters are actually better. By actually I mean tested and better.
Plus I don't think that rough is there for their moto-filters.

IMO OEM or K&N the way to go. Have seen too many oil pressure problems with Fram

I've been using Fram since I started driving (16 years) and never had a problem. Even after they were bought over by someone (Georgia Pacific?). And I don't care what you say...I love that tar they put on it so I can grip the greasy filter easily with my bare hand! Why can't the other oil filter people add that tar ? It makes a world of a difference!

For my motorcycle though, I will stick to OEM Kawi Oil and Filters.

ormand: fram is . even the "tough gaurd" is .

the grip to remove filter is the last thing that i am worried about. but if it concerns you that much. purolator gold is an excellent filter. it also has the "coating" to make removal/installaion easier.
