    700 and 750 use the same oil filter.

    In fact, Honda uses very few oil filter types across all products. I think I could use the same oil filter type on my NC700, Goldwing, and even the Ridgeline pickup.

    All the Honda bikes use the same spin-on filter but in my experience, the cars use a taller filter, blue in color, but I suspect the threads and O-ring seal may be the same diameter so using the bike filter on a Honda car/truck would probably work.

    Yes, though the OEM Honda filters are expensive compared to aftermarket ones they are usually much cheaper than what Triumph dealers charge for a T1218001 OEM filter.

    You are correct. Honda/Acura 15400-PLM-A01 or A02 filters are an exact fit for the Honda 15410-MFJ-D01 motorcycle filter. The car filters are about 5/8" longer. The A01s are internet-considered "better" because they have an metal bypass valve frame instead of the A02's plastic one. I don't think it makes a difference.

    The thread diameter of 20 mm and thread pitch of 1.5 of these filters is extremely common for auto oil filters. Every aftermarket filter maker most likely makes a filter that fits a late model Honda motorcycle, since 2004. The difference between filters is in bypass pressure and media effectiveness. Honda uses a specification for filter media that is not all that fine ( catching smaller particles vs larger particles ) but makes up for it by moving alot of oil through them. Finer filters would clog sooner and perhaps go into bypass operation.

    I am very comfortable using Honda car filters on my motorcycles and do it all the time, even the Miata uses them.

    I use the same filter on my Honda Ridgeline pickup as I do on my NCX, but I do _not_ use Honda’s branded filter. They filter about as well as a 200-mesh sieve (exaggerating for comedic purposes), which is a waste of time and money. There are a myriad of SAE publications which demonstrate that cleaner (better-filtered) engine oil results in significantly lower wear, and I have data from my own NCX to show the cleanliness improvement over even new oil that I get from using good filters.

    MZ5 - that may be true but at the end of the day how much difference does it make? I had a '97 PC800 that I bought new and put 102k miles on it before it was sold to a friend who used it to commute to work (80-mile round trip) for another 2-years. Oil consumption on that engine was nil. And I used nothing but Honda OEM filters

    DirtFlier, I don't think that's the question. The question is: Why would a person pay _more_ to have exceptionally poor filtering, rather than less for extremely good filtering and also high quality construction? I'm not talking about buying something made by slave labor somewhere, either. The Honda OEM filters just don't make any sense to me on any level.
