oil filter cup

Hi All

I have just changed the oil and filter today. All went fine except at the end when I decided to hand tighten the filter (this is the first time I am changing the oil filter on a motorbike and on cars you hand tighten these).
When I started it and let it run for a bit I noticed a tiny leak at the filter. The manual says tighten to 26Nm which I did not do because I do not have the tool.
I have to tighten this before I get to ride it ... bugger
Just to confirm, its a 65mm, 14flutes cup?

The best way to purchase it is to buy it as a kit from Honda: 1 filter and the end cap wrench.
But, the dealer may have to order it.

I just hand tighten mine and it hasn't given me any problems... I check the oil every day before I ride. Had the bike for 5 years.

Bought it along with a filter from Doble Honda in Coulsdon for 16.56. I will use the filter next time.

The filter wrench you have listed here is a good deal. These wrenches make it MUCH easier to remove the filter, as well as tighten it.

To ride or not to ride? What a stupid question!... Anon

I can't imagine how it would leak except that the surfaces and o-ring weren't clean & lubricated with a touch of oil before installing.

Yeah, when I thread the new filter on I generally follow the same procedure as for cars. Lubricate the o-ring with the old oil, and then tighten about a 1/4 to 1/2 turn past when the o-ring comes in contact with the block or whatever. And that makes it easy to get it back off again with just your hands next time.

It's a pain in the ass to get it off with a normal (non-socket) type filter wrench if it's too tight so I'm always careful to not over-tighten it. Sure, you could get away with it more tight if you had an appropriate socket-type wrench, but I haven't had any problems with it hand tight. Living in an apartment it can be a bitch to keep track of tools anyway. The wife always has her own ideas of where my stuff goes (usually in the back of the closet where I have to dig for 3 hours to find something).

Has anyone tried the oil filter that is used on Honda Automobiles (mine is a Honda Civic, and a Honda HRV) instead of the motorcycle one? I put them side by side, and other than the auto one being about 1/2 inch longer, I see no difference - threads and O-ring dia. seem the same.

I think the auto one is quite a bit less expensive & probably just as good or better.

Regarding the auto vs the bike filter, I just search for the code which is hf204. It seems to be used on lots of different bikes. The price varies considerably. I got 4 from China ($9.30 each) and they have a top that will take a socket.

Given the long oil change interval, I use synthetic oil and K&N filters. These filters are top quality and have a nice 17mm hex nut on the cap for easy fitment/removal and it's drilled for safety wire to the frame, which I do. About $12 USD for a K&N filter from E-bay.
