Hi guys,

New motorcycle rider here riding a 2020 NC750XD. I was reviewing what oil my bike takes and noticed that A) the manual doesn't state what oil filter to use and B) found out DCT Automatic bikes take a oil clutch filters as well.

My question is this -

  • Do you guys know what oil filter & clutch oil filter the '20 NC750XD takes?
  • Do you know where to buy them online?
Thanks guys apologies for the newbie questions.

The Honda oil filter is part # 15410-MFJ-D01
There's also the 12mm drain plug crush washer for the oil (one time use) #904109-12000
The DCT filter is a 'ELEMENT OIL FILTER' #1 15412-MGS-D21
but it gets changed every second oil change.
Some folks use aftermarket oil filters, or even Honda car filters but I don't really have info on them.

Many people use alternative oil filters with apparent good results but I always prefer to use OEM if I can get it. That's just my preference.

have a good Honda MC dealer a few miles away but I still usually check online for the best price and ask this local dealer to match it. They usually do and might add a few bucks for shipping. If the online source offers free shipping bring that up.

These are the three online sources I get parts info and prices from:




Like HarveyM posted the oil filter part number 15410-MFJ-D01 can be alternated with Honda p/n 15400-PLM-A01 or 15400-PLM-A02. The 15400 is a Honda car filter and has common specifications with motorcycle filters for filtering efficiency and bypass pressure. They are a little longer but will fit most Honda motorcycles including the NC700/750. The car filters can be found online as well on eBay or from dealers. I've never seen an aftermarket replacement for the DCT filter.

K & N Filters have a hex "nut" welded to the filter can for seating and removing the filter.

Although I've never looked at a K & N filter up close, my guess is that it isn't welded. The nut is just a detail of the metal stamping.

The nut is spot welded to the end of the filter K&N.

I have a metal filter socket that fits over the whole end of the filter. I believe it’s a Honda one I bought as a wrench/filter combo. Been using it for 20 years now on all my cars and motorcycles with that sized filter. Best $5 I’ve ever spent.

There was at least one prior post ( several years back) where the spot welded nut broke off the K&N oil filter.

K&N did a recall on their oil filters because of the nut coming off. The defective spot welds would crack and the oil filter would leak.
