I'll never understand it. I do my beginning of the season oil change for a hell of a lot less than I spend in a bar on a friday night.

I know you're joking, but it's pretty common knowledge the Purolator Pure One filters are substantially better than the Japanese OEM for about half the price.

it says don't use the pure one ones on bikes on their site?

http://www.purolatorautofilters.net/...lefilters.aspx

What About PureONE
If you're thinking you want to install a PureONE oil filter on your bike, please think again. PureONE oil filters are designed for vehicles, not bikes. Because of PureONE's high efficiency, the motorcycle oil pump may not be able to handle the pressure. The Purolator motorcycle filter line is designed to meet the specific needs of a bike; therefore we highly recommend the use of a Purolator ML filter over a PureONE oil filter.

There may be some weaker oil pumps on the market that have issue with this, but look at the brand & model specific sportbike forums out there. Most of the feedback on the pureone is very good.

I know I've used them on 4 different bikes totaling over 60k miles without an issue. If you'd like more piece of mind, try the ML line. It seems comparably priced.

everyone who says don't be cheap puts about 500 miles on their bikes a year!

I've used regular Rotella since the second oil change I did on the bike. That was almost 20k miles ago and I've had zero issues. When I've ridden 10k miles per year I had to be cheap and put in cheaper oil. I was changing the oil 1.5 to 2 times a month!!

Here ya go guys,

if you want cheaper oil changes but don't want to compromise on quality, become a preferred customer. you get your stuff at wholesale prices instead of retail. best deal going.

How about supporting your local motorcycle shop and not the behometh stores.

Last time I checked motorcycle shops provide you customer service / knowledge that Walmart doesn't. Call them when you need to find what tire pressure to run in your tires, suspension setup, comparisons on tires, product knowledge, etc.......I'm sure they will be more that happy to provide you with that info for the the couple of bucks you saved going there.

Since when did you think it would work in your favor to guilt trip your potential customers?

I think his message was little more lighthearted than that. Kevin doesn't operate like that.

If I wasn't such a cheap ass, he would be the only one in the area I would let do my oil changes.

For the rider in a financial position to do so, supporting your local guy is a good move and a win/win.

There are, however, more than a few riders on this board who are between jobs or have taken substantial pay cuts & are hanging on to this great hobby by a thread. I'd rather see them find a way to keep riding as inexpensively as possible than to see them walk away & potentially never return.
