    Any Good?: New $3 Walmart ST6607 and the ST7317 Oil Filters

    Found this over on the KLR and GL1800 threads..... looks to be under $3 per filter @ local Walmarts. Figured I would pass it on.

    Same company that makes the Mobil 1 filters (champion) make this filter for Walmart.

    Will they work for the ST?

    Any good?


    Cheers!

    Many have been using the ST7317 for years. I've been unable to find them at the local Walmart (since moving from Tucson to Ventura).

    I may try the ST6607 after reading that link.

    I was using the ST7317 as it had impressive first and multi-pass efficiencies claimed on the box label. Lately, when I can find them, I noticed that this information has been removed. The filters look as though maybe they are using a different supplier as well. I've quite using them since I noticed the change.

    I've been using them with no problems, I usually buy 4 at a time so I have it handy for the next oil change.

    Oh, I'll be buying in quantity next time I find them!

    Last time I was in Walmart, I did my usual check for oil (Rotella) and filter. Surprise...they had two gallons of oil. Bought both. Now I need filters.

    I have used the ST6607 and have no problems to report. Presently I have a honda filter on the bike, but the next oil change I will use my remaining ST6607 that is sitting in the garage. The info on the other forum was intresting reading.

    Re: Any Good?: New $3 Walmart ST6607 and the ST7317 Oil Filters

    I just picked up a ST6607 from Wal-Mart just to check it out in comparison to a OEM Honda filter. Exactly the same size. However, in the link Dan provided, that thread is of 2004 vintage and it seems there are some discrepancy between the filter I have and the one he reveiwed in the link.

    The one I just picked up has a flat gasket unlike the semi-cicurlar o-ring type found on the OEM filter. There is no indication on the box that it is still made by Champion so I have sent an e-mail to Champion asking about the Super Tech filters. I'll post their response if/when I receive it. It seems that with the additional pleats in the ST6607 there isn't much filtering difference between the longer ST7317 and the ST6607 but I'm no expert in the matter...

    I took the cross reference from Wix site where the Wix 51365 fit other cars and took it to Wal-Mart and plugged it into the little computer thingy and it spit out the ST6607 for all the one's I checked. The only thing I scribbled on the print out before I left was the ST7317 from the Calsci website. I honestly had no idea about the ST6607 until I got to Wal-Mart. This is all out of a spark of curiosity.

    I did find these spec's posted on GWRRA Message Board from a response to a email sent to Champion:

    "Mr. Kutka -

    Please find attached engineering specifications for ST6607 (Champ equivalent part number PH2876).

    Just got this response back from Champion:

    Matt,
    Yes we are still manufacturing the Super-Tech oil filters for Wal-mart. Although I am limited to what info I can give out being it is proprietary info if you let me know specifically what specs you are needing, I will see what I can do to help you out.

    I sent a list of spec's I'd like to see and I'll post his reply. I somehow doubt I'm going to get much, though.

    Here is his final response:

    Matt,
    The ST6607 is 2 1/2" in height , 2.65 in OD, and has a M20 x 1.5 thread. This filter has been design ed to meet all of the OE requirements for fit and function. It has a Pressure relief valve and a anti drain back valve as well. They were designed to be comprobable to a Fram filter. The rest of the info is propritary to Super-Tech and I don't even have a way of looking that up. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Since they are still manufacturing the filters, I'd think that the spec's are probably the same as the response someone else had better luck with that I posted above.
