Has anyone used the Mobil 1 oil filter

# M1 108A on a 2010 GL1800?

I'm sorry, I haven't run the Mobil1 filter personally, but I've not heard anything bad about them either.  My filter of choice is the Wix WL-10000.  Never had a bad experience with these.  Welcome aboard and good luck.

Thanks for the reply..

Mobil is one of the largest and best funded research automotive oil corporations..

They have some of the best chemist and R&D programs..

 

I have to assume their products are the best or as close to the best you can find??

I've read about Amsoil and Rotella as being popular oils for the Goldwing.. Especially Amsoil for having the characteristics that make shifting quieter and smoother..

 

Not sure why Mobil 1 doesn't seem to be mentioned much??

Yeah, Mobil 1 oil is great, used by many Goldwing riders.  I've used it in my 03, and it has done well.  Rotella is one of the most popular oils used and this can be seen on just about every Goldwing board.  Rotella T6 is probably number one, but be aware there are two versions.  One is for gas engines, believe it or not, you don't want this one.  The Rotella T6 for Diesel is the version you want to use.  This is the synthetic oil with the JASO MA/MA2 rating.  I'm currently running Rotella T4, which meets the same standards (JASO MA/MA2), but is dino oil instead of syn.  I must say oil is a subject that gets a lot of response.  It tends to be a very personal choice, not only for you but your bike as well.  It's odd but some bikes just seem to like different oils, running or shifting smoother depending on the particular oil in use.  As long as you're running a quality oil that meets the rating requirements, play with it and find what makes you both happy.
