    Necessity for clutch oil filter change

    Changing my engine oil/filter tomorrow. First time doing it myself on the NC. My question is..... Good idea to change out the clutch oil filter at the same time? The bike has about 4,000 miles on it.

    The Barrett manual says Honda recommends every other oil change - 16K miles.
    But he says they are fairly cheap so he changes it every 8K along with the oil.

    Good info. The reason I'm asking myself this is that, even though I'm no where near the 8,000k mark, it's been about 18 months since the 600 was done. I'm thinking about the old 'change the oil once a year anyway, regardless of mileage, theory.

    I definitely would not bother changing the clutch oil filter at 4000 miles.

    Nope, I plan on changing mine every 16k. We have an oil filter that will catch most. The clutch filter just makes sure all is clean for the narrow passages.
