I am going to give the wix filter a try. I can buy them through my company for a grand total of $ 3.70 a filter. Good to hear about the napa one, because napa's filters are just wix reboxed. I can also get gates drive belts if any one needs one.

Does the XTZ use the same filter as the XTX?
Ok after doing some checking yes they use the same filter.
This is the info I found out.

AC # 0812-029 Changed to 0812-034 which crosses to Wix # 57937

It appears AC uses the same filter for XTZ,XTX,XT
Which cross to Wix # 57937

Wix makes outstanding products, I have ordered two. I can get them for $3.70. Great deal I think.

Hope this helps

would this be alright in my 08 XT650 i just bought it from a guy that runs a/c oil wondering if this would hurt it to change?i reallly like mobil 1 not sure about the syn part about it
Listening to PCP Donny and Joe I am using Amsoil now and had a few AC filters, but just ordered a Fram. gonna cut open and autopsy a used AC filter and then do the same with the Fram to see if what i hear is true - that most are made by the same mfg and just packaged and priced differently.

Wouldnt mind hearing what the guts of others like Wix and Napa look like... maybe we can do our own local comparison for value vs price purpose. post pix too?

I moderate on a cruiser motorcycle forum and one of the members commented on Fram filters. This is what he said about them. Take it for what it is, but I will not run them in anything.





Avoid Fram Filters - paper ends have been reported to disintegrate - bad news.

I have several brands of oil filters cut open in my store, sort of visual aids for my retail customers so that they can truly SEE the difference in a quality filter and a not so quality filter.


What is said about FRAM is true, down to less filter media paper, fewer pleats with a piece of string (yes string) holding the pleats in place. I've seen them go into full bypass (oil filter plugs because of collapsed media and oil is diverted directly back into the engine without filtering) after 15 minutes of running. The bad part is you'd never know it unless you cut the filter apart.

I carry 3 grades of oil filters and my "premium" filter sells about 4 to 1 over the cheaper ones. Peoples reaction after seeing what is actually inside is amazing. It's one of those cases where the budget gets spent on advertising instead of going into making a quality product.

Odd I go to Napaonline.com and do an interchange with your wix 57937 filter and it comes up with a PS7937.

I'll have my son compare them for size and price.
