Default Oil Filter Which is best

There is a lot of info on oil but what oil filter do most people use?
I got a great deal on Vic oil change kits for the first 25,000 miles when I bought my XC, but that is gone and on the last 4.5 quarts I bought a Puralator Pur1 gold filter.
After seeing a post from someone not to use this I decided to ask

What do you use?

'68 5hp Tote Goat minibike - My 1st Ride
'82 GS550L Suzuki - long gone
'91 1100 Shadow - gone
'91 900RR - gone
'02 1800 VTX Retro - Looking for a new home
'11 Cross Country - new ride looking new for twisties

I've used the M-101 by Mobil for the last couple of changes. No way to tell how well it works without getting a Used Oil Analysis, but I'm happy with it.

Red,
Search the many oil threads where filters were discussed, you will learn a lot there. One thing you'll learn is to avoid the discount store filters such as Purolator and Fram unless you hate your engine and are wishing it an early death. I got turned on to the supirior NAPA Gold 1356 by reading those threads. NAPA stores are everywhere, so that filter is easy to find.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
2017 Spyder F3 Limited - keeps this old guy in the wind and riding with friends.

NAPA & Carquest filters are both made by WIX filters which are very good filters.----Some parts stores will give you a great price if you just ask about it. Try saying you are going to the competition , because you can get a better price. Sometimes it works,if not you just got to pay what they ask.

Opinions are like *%&holes, everyones got one especially with oil, filters and darksiding. I think Wix or any other name they manufacture for would the best regular type filters you can get. If you want the best go this route.

It's more about having the best performance filter vs it being about saving money because it's re-usable because it would take a long time to even break even to buy it soley as a cost savings.

http://www.discountfleetsupply.com/wix51356.html I buy it by the case in my shop for everything. Here it is a little over $4 a filter. 12 X 5000 miles is 60000 miles oil changes. this is the right part number for the Victory with the 1731 or 106 sized engine.

I just add a rare earth magnet to the outside of my filter. Usually go with a Wix filter.

PCV, ATS +4, Lloydz filter, VM1-HPT cams, and Freedom True Duals.

2004 King Pin - 100 cid Big Bore, Ness Intake, Victory Performance Exhaust

2010 XR - Road toy
PCV, ATS +4, Lloydz filter, VM1-DR cams, and Freedom True Duals - traded

Are the K&P the same as these PC Racing ? They look identical.
