        I would have put in a link if I knew how. I am not very swift on the PC, about a generation removed from the computer kids. Maybe someone can Goggle it and add a link. It does look good to me also. I work in the chemical industry where these fine mesh screens are used extensively to filter out minute particulates. If anyone has one in use let me know. If not I will be the tester, cause I want to try one.

            Kind of expensive.

              If you want "cool factor" and can not think of anything else to spend $100 plus dollars on then go for it.

              Now to my reson not to buy it!
              It is 10 times the price of a Honda filter that we all know works!
              It is 20 times the price of a Fram filter that also works but maybe not as well!

              How many mile a year do you ride or better how many miles are on your Hawk?

              How well can you clean this filter when you need to clean it?

              You change your oil lets say every 2500 miles. The Scott filter would pay for itself in 25000 miles vs OEM Honda item. Does your Hawk have 25000 miles on it? Most Hawks that I have seen are still less than 20000 and they are almost twenty years old.

              Most oil related engine isuues are due to people not changing the oil and not the filter.

              The most critcal time for the oil filter is while breaking in a new motor because there is aways some dirt, machining material, gasket material or something that was left in the motor that needs to be filtered out to protect the crank main bearings and the big and small end connecting rod bearings.

              So if you change your oil every 2500 miles or at least every year if you do not ride more than 2500 miles a year and you use a quailty oil filter and oil you should have no reason to spend $100 plus on a street motorcyle filter.

              For an offroad race bike or even a road race bike where you change your oil every race weekend and you race a lot this might be the filter for you.

                  then again....
                  i have to change my oil every month... because i daily ride the hawk.. im already on my 3rd oil change this year, and i only recently put it together... if i dont order a few of them online, a honda filter is $25 from a fealer... this one is $65 (look on ebay more carefully... )

                  so for a little more then two filters, i have this one....

                  to clean it, well i always have a can of carb cleaner or brake cleaner sitting around.. it only takes a second.

                  my hawk has 90,000+ miles, and i dont see any reason she'll slow down anytime soon.

                    for $65 all that I have seen are the replacement filters for the inside of the casing. Link me to the cheaper priced one then.

                      The last Honda OEM filter that I picked up from my local dealer ( Champion Honda ) was something like $12.00 and not $25.00. They must not like you there??????????

                      As for the $65 filter on ebay, I might not of looked as well as you did but the ones for $65 that I found were only the filter insert and not the complete filter assembly like the one I linked on my first posting.

                      I did a search for "scott filter" on ebay and searched for "lowest price first" and all of the scott cartridge inserts start around $62.95 and they will not fit the Hawk. I did not find the first Scott filter to fit the Hawk until I was above $100 price point. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Honda...37326516QQrdZ1 The lower price ones listed on ebay appear to be the insert type filter and not the screw on type that we find on the Hawk and most current Honda street bikes.

                      So if you can find on ebay a Scott Filter for around $65 that will fit the following bikes buy it because it should also fit the Hawk.
                      CB400F CB-1 89-90
                      CBR600F2 F3

                      CB750 Nighthawk 91-97
                      RVF750 RC45 94
                      V45 Magna 94-97
                      VFR750 90-97
                      PC800 89-98
                      CBR900 95-97
                      CB1000 94-95
                      CBR1000 87-95
                      CBR1100 97
                      ST1100 90-96
                      VT1100 89-98
                      GL1500 89-98
                      And more!

                      These are just some of the Honda application. If I was really bored I would begin to list the Kawasaki and Yamaha bikes that can use the same filter as the Hawk.

                      Next time I will " (look on ebay more carefully... )" and notice the print under the images of the $65 Scott filter that states "Example photo of Scotts Oil Filter
                      Specific item may vary depending on exact model ordered."
