FWIW

I have been using a Fram filter # PH6607 for the yearly oil change.  I think the dealer filter was in the range of $17..... but can't recall for certain.  The Fram filter was $7.75 CND at Walmart this year.  Maybe $1 more at Canadian Tire.  It seems that this filter is the same one listed for the Honda Civic.

I have had no problems; and when checked for compatibility with the OEM filter for the Silverwing, I found this to be a perfect match.

Glad your oil change worked out Steve ... and you solved the leak issue.   Things like this adds to our confidence in working on the bike.

Steve,
When checking the oil level, DO NOT screw in the dip stick. Just let it sit on the top of the hole, then remove and read the level on the dip stick.

Hi Easyrider,
For all the mistakes I have made with my Swing, I was fortunate to have found that part in the Honda Service Manual that tells us NOT to screw in the dipstick when checking the oil -- just as you had advised. Nonetheless, I really appreciate your useful tip of the same.
Thanks mucho!
Steve

One more minor tip, I found there wasn't enough of a difference in checking oil level on the centerstand or off, so when I check I just remove the dipstick, wipe it off drop it in the hole get on the scoot bring it back up to level left to right put it back on the side stand remove the dipstick and read the oil level.
