PostSubject: Do you have to renew oil filter when you change oi?   Sun Nov 17, 2013 12:58 pm

I was talking to a biker at work but he does the same with his cars so the question is on the hole. He only changes his oil filters every few times that he changes the oil, Sounds dodgy to me what do you think, is there any point in changing the oil if you don't change the filter???

Seems pointless to me, for what they cost.

I can't see the point in doing one without the other if you are doing your scheduled maintenance as the filter collects the debris within the engine. The filters will also break down over time or get clogged up & as pointed out by DaveC, the cost of them is negligible when put into context of the damage that can occur over time with this unusual practice. 

However I now feel I need to explain myself as some may have read a thread that contains info where I have declared that I do a similar practice but here is why for anyone that wants to shout at me.  ..... I change my oil on my bike twice a year and that is regardless of the low mileage I have done & I do very little bike miles per year. However I only change my filter every other time that I service the bike but never & I do mean never allow the bike to pass a second service without an oil filter change but please remember that I service my bike twice a year but this is only done like this because of a habit that I have built up because of my trail bike history.

As a rule never exceed service intervals without completing an oil & filter change.

It's a bit like changing the filter and not the oil, one is defeating the object.

as above they go hand in hand for best lubrication and filtration. Just lazy if you don't if you ask me.

I follow the maintenance plan from the suzuki manual that came whit the bike. 
Change oil every 6000km and oil and filters ever 12000km.
Have worked quite allright for me so far. 
And i always do a change of oil and filter during the "off season". Regardless of kilometers to next change to get a fresh start when the season starts again.

Question? If you don't change the filter do you remove it and clean it in any way or just drain the oil and refill. :what1:

  Under normal circumstances, the price would determine that it is binned if done as part of the scheduled service.

Yep. Bin it. Also a new high flow K&N filter is 2/3 the price of an OEM filter too, plus it has a nice nut on the end that helps gettn it off AND they come in chrome if thats what you like. I change my oil every 3000-4000kms regardless due to the type of riding I do. She's my baby.

Good call  The amount of hassle I have had over the years with getting oil filters off with a screw driver hammered through them

 Certainly beats the hammer and screwdriver removal method.
