I've haven't seen any of the filter holes get cloged yet & I check every time I clean. Plus that's the point of the earth magnet. It collects any metal bits or dirt from the oil before the oil goes thru the filter and back into the engine.crx81 said:My only concern is cleaning it. If the filter's holes are THAT small, it seems they could clog up, and you'd never know it. Otherwise a cool idea.
Let's see... at what one of these cost, you'd have to do around 34 oil changes before you broke even (at $3.50 per filter). For those of us that do oil changes at 2,000 miles that would happen around 70,000 miles if you started at your first oil change. Anyone planning on keeping the bike that long? nfloor I don't think $$$$$ savings is a legitimate reason to buy this thing.
Wow. I could ask the same question... Where the hell do you get filters at $14?!? More importantly... WHY???greatzippy said:And where the hell to you get filters at $3.50!?!? I've always had to pay around $14 for a filter.
Yes, but they also allow as large as 95 micron past. The thing about the scotts is 35 is the absolute smallest particle that will get through. Where the OEM fillter has holes that are from 10 - 95 microns big. So yeah, the OEM filter will catch some 10 micron dirt, but at the same time will allow stuff as large as 95 micron past.ZXLNT said:Basically a most all stock filters screen down to 10 micron size while the Scotts only filters down to 35 micron size.
I disagree.. I just changed the oil after roughly a 2800-mile interval and it was pretty beat. I'd guess if you rev your 600 hard the oil will break down pretty fast.FZ6 said:If your changing your oil at 2500 what's it really matter how well the filter filters, the oil isnt really getting dirty at that interval anyway -- unless your offroading a street bike.
