ok, so I'm way behind on this post but I just saw this site that I thought would be good to pass along when above one of the postings was for a Fram filter.
You decide.

Yeah, i've never been a big fan of Fram filters. I read something awhile back that there were a lot of counterfeit's out there labeled as Fram.

One of the auto parts stores had a display set out of a cutaway version of a Fram and a Wix. The Wix was clearly superior. Supposedly the Napa brand is made by Wix.

Does this list of oil filters apply to the 2008 & newer also?

Great. Thanks. I have the service manual, and can not find the filter number anywhere in it. Hard to believe.

That sounds pretty interesting. I'd be curious to see how that works. I'm getting a couple from NAPA today. I think theirs is made by wix. I just got the bike and am wanting to get new oil into it.

Found Fram CH6070 filters at Advance Auto from two different countries-of-origin (Korea and India), two different overall lengths--Korean product 0.16 cm longer than its Indian counterpart (boxes different sizes, also).

I bought one of each; put the longer one in my '07 KLR650 just as an experiment . . .

So far, so good; experiment won't be completed 'til both lengths are run through their service life and inspected.

I have images of calipered measurements, box printing, comparative views. Kinda dull, actually; don't show much more significant than my narrative above. May post 'em anyway, if I get awfully bored . . .











Don't think the difference in length critical to the KLR650 application, since each fits easily into the oil filter compartment. With reasonable oil change intervals, filters may not be entirely essential; Honda made jillions of small engines without disposable oil filters.

Still, I'd prefer a serviceable filter. When a filter chokes up, however, the bypass valve opens and . . . unfiltered oil is then circulated through the engine. Not the best thing in the world, but . . . no cataclysmic disaster, necessarily.

Adapting a "MYTHBUSTERS" persona (but I will NOT wear a ridiculous beret!), I must say: The legend, Fram manufactures and markets CH6070 oil filters in various lengths, is TRUE!
