Get whatever oil you want (Synthetic is the best) and a "Purolator PureOne" oil filter.

If you are riding in the Katy area, feel free to PM and I will help you with the change.
everything has it's application. fully synthetic may be good in 1 thing....but can be bad in another. i'd go with the reg stuff.....but i change mine a lot, so it really doesn't matter.


and for all the people who say do it yourself...."save a little money", that's entirely true....you save a little money. if you don't know what you are doing.....even something simple as an oil change can do some major damage if not done correctly.

me, i hate changing my own oil.....i like tinkering with my bikes and stuff....but for an extra $10 on top of the oil/filter......i'll let Motorcycles Unlimited do it for me. plus they can give your bike a 50 point (or whatever the number is) inspection to make sure everything is good.



AS FOR OIL/FILTER.......IF CHANGED REGULARLY....IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU USE. i prefer Motul oil and HiFlo oil filters.......but it's all preference.

Purolator Pure One for an oil filter?

I saw a post about this oil filter a few weeks ago. I looked on Purolator's website to see what number my gixxer would take. Nothing listed for motorcycles. But they had an oil filter hotline. I called the 800 number and the Purolator guy said they did not make one for my Gixxer. I was about to hang up and the guy said "could I tell you a little more?" Sure. He said there were two articles on the internet that talked about changing a motorcycle's oil and using a Purolator PureOne oil filter. He said that they have not been tested or approved for motorcycle use by Purolator. I am not sure how people are finding which one to use on their bikes.

quoted for truth! just put it in nice and easy by hand at first, it should go right in, almost like by itself. once its hand tight, just use the wrench or ratchet to tighten slightly, not too much.

Just about every test I have seen WIX score at or near the top, and FRAM is near the bottom. I have also seen and read enough horror stories on FRAM to steer clear. Not to mention bad personal experience years ago...
