Royal Purple Oil Filter

Just letting y'all know that I've been doing some research on oil filters and that I've found that the AMSOIL/Royal Purple filters are second to none. Although they don't make "motorcycle" filters I've found one that has the same dimensions and thread pitch as the OEM Honda filter. Its a 10-2876 I'm putting one on this weekend I'll let y'all know how it goes

What's the pop-off pressure for the relief valve on that filter? Does it match the OEM filter?
What qualities does it have that make it second to none?

They chances of you stopping one of these filters up is unlikely, but if you ever did the range is 11-17 psi and stock from what i've found is 14? havent found much info on the stock filter so any input would be great! The synthetic media will allow alot more flow when dirty where as the cellulose filter media is actually being plugged up being very restrictive. The shells are also pressure tested to 600 PSI so no chance of blowing one off, they also can filter stuff out as small as 25 microns. I will be doing an oil analysis on this oil change (Repsol racing 4T with Honda OEM filter) and the next oil change (Repsol racing 4T with Royal Purple filter) and comparing them. But as far as I can see these are the best conventional spin on filter you can buy thats a direct fit for the RC but hey I've been wrong before.
If you call them they are more than happy to discuss anything about their filters. http://www.royalpurpleconsumer.com/p...e-oil-filters/

That was a comprehensive reply RickyBobby. Good work my man!
My biggest concern is always about the reliability and spec tolerances of the relief valve. Second, of course, is the filtering media itself.

Thanks jon, madbuyer $12 isn't that much for a filter considering the $58 in oil and $20 in sparkplugs every 3k miles but I did are that Purolator has gotten into the synthetic media lately I forget what serries it is but I'm sure their filters are more than adequate, they've been in the game a long time, "Pure oil then, Pure oil now, Purolator! lol

Although that would make perfect sense, that's not the case anymore. So many companies sell to another company, who then change management, quality control, customer satisfaction, -- all to extract more profits. And the product that was once an industry leader, or just a great product, is relegated to just another mediocre product. Especially when they ship the manufacturing to China, Mexico, etc...

You are correct sir, i just googled it, i never would've thought Purolator sold out, very disappointing, i saw this one their website SMH The Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA) "Know Your Parts" campaign believes it is not important where a product is made but rather who stands behind it.

On a good side note though, Royal Purple oil filters are made in Albion, Illinois
