Purolator filters (non-PureOne)??

Well, I just received my Purolator filter order and I didn't read close enough...

I ordered a couple filters each for my truck, my car, and my cycle. The car and truck filters are the recommended PureOne variety, but the motorcycle filters are not. Doing further research (that I should have done up front) I find that PureOne are not available for my RF900.

So, the question is, are the "Precision" Purolator motorcycle filters any good?

Or, at least as good as say the NAPA filter I usually get (which, BTW, has changed from NAPA Gold to a different name)?

This may be late, but I would trust that filter, no problem. Although the PureOne is considered the best, the standard Purolator has to still be better than Fram, and probably equivalent to anything else. There's really not that much difference among all the filters anymore. If you change them regularly, even the cheapest filters will give you adequate protection.

I'll add that I've found some suggesting the use of some auto filters that fit well and seem to have the same pressure release point so I've actually moved away, somewhat, from the manu's filters.
