time for the next oil change on the gixxer.

I was going to order some filters from ronayers.com. They go for [email protected] with a flat shipping rate of $7 up to $100 of merchandise ordered.

Two questions:

1) anybody know of a better deal?
2) if not, any other gixxer riders want to go in on the order with me? I'm planning on getting two and there's already someone else on the board that wants two also. room for 5 more :D

p.s. also same part # for those of you out there with a can o tuna ride :thumbsup

Hey Ernie..

I paid $12 and some change at the dealership closest to my place (with the cute girls in apparel). The part number for my bike is 16510-34e00 . Same as yours? I tried to find the part number for yours but it wasn't listed.

I may be up for ordering a couple if you want to do a 'group buy' on oil filters. :cheers

Chris

Guess Max best head up there soon before she's gone! He IS looking for a bike. I offered him a good deal on the Maxim but he didn't take it. :confused

I have to head up there soon too. One of my f'n seat bolts fell off somehow! I think I torqued it on too tight and it pushed the brass spacer out and took the bolt with it? I can probably make another spacer at work, I'll call up there for the bolt today. The brass spacer isn't a seperate part since it's press fit in there and is supposed to stay there :bs

Gel seat soon?

:p

Hey ernie, The amsoil ones are cheaper and better for your motor. Check out the filter thread in my oil forum. I can get you the part number for your bike when I get home, and give you the ordering link. Mine go for around 8-9 bucks depending on what size you need.

cheaper - yes. better - ???

do I get the Big Tony guarantee on that? :D

been reading up on some reviews. Honda and Suzuki seem to be the top of the charts for oil filters...

I think I'll stick with the OEM stuff for now. I'm going to have the bike in for a checkup (funky engine noise in 1st gear) and don't want to give them any excuse not to service my bike under warranty.

hmm, I just noticed that for all the bikes I clicked on in ronayers.com seem to list the same part number for the filter no matter what bike. that's something refreshing. it sure wasn't that way when I rode Yamaha. always got asked what bike, what year, ....

I had heard.....don't know if this is true...but many of the motorcycle filters are auto filters that have new part numbers and resold with higher prices. Supposedly if you find the one that matches yours you can get one for 2-3 dollars. But I don't know if that's true because motocycle oil also is the tranny oil stuff thingy goop too. so i don't know if that requires a differant filter material.....Tony should be able to disprove or prove this myth.


Just remember...this is only what i heard...so please go easy on me:(

And now for a word from our sponsor :D :D :D

By the way these are what I use on my bikes.


<p><font size="2"><img border="0" src="prodpics/motofilters01_small.jpg" align="right" hspace="6" vspace="6" width="400" height="156">Oil is the life blood of your motorcycle
engine. Your oil filtration system keeps that life blood flowing and your
ride on the road.</font></p>
<p><font size="2">For nearly 30 years, AMSOIL INC. has offered state-of-the-art products Dealers can sell with pride. In that time, the company’s reputation has
grown, along with its product line.</font></p>
<p><font size="2">Now, AMSOIL has developed a full line of oil filters
specifically designed for motorcycles and ATVs.</font></p>
<p><font size="2">The SuperDuty Motorcycle Oil Filters (SMF)
reflect the newest technological advances in the quest to meet the
unique demands of today’s high-stress motorcycle engines.</font></p>
<p><font size="2"><b>The three main functions of any oil filter are
flow, life and efficiency.</b></font></p>
<ul>
<li><font size="2">Flow is the filter’s ability to let the right volume of oil
reach its intended parts, with a minimum degree of restriction.</font></li>
<li><font size="2">Life is the filter’s capacity to remain in service
for a predicted amount of time.</font></li>
<li><font size="2">Efficiency is the filter’s ability to remove
contaminants that cause engine wear.</font></li>
</ul>
<p><font size="2">While each of those functions is vital
individually, there’s more to it.</font></p>
<p><font size="2">“Remember, it’s more than just flow. It’s
more than just efficiency. It’s more than just life,” said Dave
Anderson, AMSOIL Technical Sales Director. “They all have to perform in
unison. A filter is only as good as its weakest link.”</font></p>
<p><font size="2">Typically, oil filters are comprised of
cellulose, or paper, synthetic fibers, glass fibers, or a combination of
media.</font></p>
<p><font size="2">“All of these fibers have a different set of
characteristics to them,” Anderson said.</font></p>
<p><font size="2"><b>Each provides different levels of filtration of the
damaging dirt and dust particles that shorten the life of a motorcycle engine.</b></font></p>
<ul>
<li><font size="2" color="#008080"><i><b>Traps Dirt Throughout Media Thickness</b></i></font></li>
<li><font size="2" color="#008080"><i><b>Up to 100% More Capacity</b></i></font></li>
<li><font size="2" color="#008080"><i><b>Up to 20% More Efficiency</b></i></font></li>
<li><font size="2" color="#008080"><i><b>Built for Rugged Performance</b></i></font></li>
<li><font size="2" color="#008080"><i><b>Heavy-duty Steel Case Withstands
Extreme Conditions</b></i></font></li>
<li><font size="2" color="#008080"><i><b>Assures Oil Flow With Relief Valve</b></i></font></li>
<li><font size="2" color="#008080"><i><b>Prevents Oil Drainage During Engine
Shutdown</b></i></font></li>
</ul>
<p><font size="2">Flow is gained through a media that is open and
free, while efficiency is gained through media that is closed and difficult to
penetrate. The flow versus efficiency ” compromise within the filtration system is the
greatest demand on an oil filter’s performance.</font></p>
<p><font size="2">“Through our testing, we have found the best for
motorcycles, and automobiles, is a blend of the three media –
synthetic, cellulose and glass,” Anderson said.. “That gives the best overall
performance. You have to look at overall performance. How they do all the tasks
that you want them to do. A prudent consumer must consider the total package.”</font></p>
<p><font size="2">AMSOIL SuperDuty Motorcycle Oil Filters provide
the greatest possible balance of that “total package” to provide the ultimate in overall filtration performance.</font></p>

</table>
</div>
<p><font size="2">The filters are available in black finish,
with several models also available in chrome. The chrome models have a C designation.</font></p>
<p><font size="2">They have a heavy-duty case of drawn steel.
The case is double-crimped at the base with rolled-under seaming to withstand extreme pressure surges and
road shocks.</font></p>
<p><font size="2">AMSOIL SMF are available in spin-on and cartridge
types.</font></p>
<p><font size="2">The new G-194 Automotive Filter and Cross- Reference Guide lists the correct filter for each motor-
cycle and ATV. A separate Motorcycle and ATV Filter Cross Reference
Guide, G-1768, at $1.00 U.S., also is newly available for your convenience.</font></p>
<p><font size="2">These quality full-flow filters are designed to allow
extended filter change intervals.</font></p>
<p><font size="2">AMSOIL INC. recommends the following
guidelines. When using an AMSOIL SMF with conventional oil,
change the filter at the manufacturer ’s recommendation. When using
an AMSOIL SMF with AMSOIL Motor Oil, change the filter at twice the
manufacturer ’s recommendation or six months.</font></p>

Feel Free to post in here with your year and model of bike and I can supply you with the appropriate part number.

If you dont mind waiting. I dont keep filtrs in stock because theres just too many different kinds. and thats cash out of my pocket just sitting on shelves. Otherwise I could order it for you but it wouldbe faster just for you to order it otherwise i would get it tin then we would have t arrange to get it t you. See what I'm sayin.
