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.
Wife has 2015 nc700
I have 2018 NC 750
Online stores have oil filters for the 700 but say they will not fit the 750?
any ideas/ advice?
Well theres a shock. The same filter for the 700 and 750 NCs also fit both my triumphs ???
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.
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.
