Is the NAPA 1032 still a good filter choice.

I priced a NAPA 1352 it was $31.00 plus tax . Man, we are suckers up here.

Hi KK,

Just bought a couple of 1032s for about $10 each. I think they are made by Wix. Makes the Colorado Norton Works adapter for $16 that comes with a Wix filter seem like a deal. Most places around here like O'Reilly's, Parts America, or Advanced carry the Wix filters for quite a bit less than NAPAs. Last Wix I bought for my Jeep was $6.

Does the stock filter housing have the right thread config. for the 1032?
If I'm reading Dave's info correctly it does.kk

Screwed on very nicely on both of mine. Threads felt good, not too loose or tight.

BTW, last year I discovered the Purolater PureOne PL 14610 was a perfect and high quality match for my 2001 Speed Triple. (under $5 at Advance) So this goes on in other forums as well. I'm trying to save a buck or two without compromising any quality. Gotta have good oil and good oil filters, but, I'm basically a cheapskate!

In my experience dealers will stock the filter that gives them the greatest profit.
I would suggest that if you really want the best filter for your bike you go buy them all, cut them open, have a good look inside, measure the parer area and then have them checked for hole size. Of course some of us have ben down that road before as olde posts will I believe show if you bother to look them up.
All I will say is that the filter available from Andover Norton is, as far as I am aware,(I will confirm that tomorrowand if it isnt will post telling uou) made to the same spec as it was originally designed for Norton by Crossland Filters and I personally would use it unless I find another car or motorcycle one that is as good or better.
I feel sure that there must be a few Commando owners over there in the USA who could club together and via a Norton dealer buy a big enougfh batch to keep the price as competative.....or is that asking too much.....
Of course there are now even better filter materials coming into use that will I believe filter out, on the first pass of the oil, even smallerparticles than previously butr I doulbt they are to be found in the filters we use. Unless you know differently. Guess I should talk to 'my' friendly filter designer and find out how common the materials are these days...... Another job for tomorrow/today

Ya I'll go buy a bunch, and cut them open, and then phone around Europe and Austrailia further researching for the best filter...[not]
The bike didn't even come with a filter until 73 so I doubt if wasting my time looking for a "super filter" is a wortwhile endeavour!

Art Xandars sells the Perf-Form filter which seems to be the best that will screw onto the Norton base without an adapter.

If that is your attitude why bother to fit a oil filter in the first place? If your bike had one fitted as std I guess you should remove it.
Personally I thought the idea was to remove as many metal particles as possible to ensure longer engine life.
You must be a typical British bike owner.
As for asking what thread size filters are etc ever thought of phoning a filter manufacturer and asking for their C.D. that gives all such info and cross references to other manufacturers products?? Oris that too complicated??

Once again ,thats what the forum ,and internet are for.
I'd hate to see your phone bill :p

If we all go back to the phone era, the forum would shut down,and who would you "dazzle" with your knowledge???
