I wouldnt use a Fram even as a doorstop. Like you said they are utter crap.desmo_drum said:Fram does make a filter and its sold at many walmarts as well as other places. I believe the number ends with a 0019. Look in the parts alternitive thread at the top of the tech section. It also fits some pre 1996 harleys.
I used one and its complete crap and wouldn't recommend it. Its chrome, about 3/4 inch shorter than the original or K&N, costs $9 instead of $11 ($2 big whoop! : ) YMMV
