954 Oil Filter Question - Fram TG6607

I visited the local Advance Auto for some replacement bulbs for the daily driver. Came across some killer deals on oil filters in their clearance section.

I picked up 4 FRAM Tough Guard model TG6607 for my 954. Shows the silver truck on the front and looks like its the right size. Marked down to $2.95

Will this filter work? Their database wouldn't even pull up a 954. Their system would only pull up a 929, and the model number was similar but the first 2 letters were different. PH6607

Once I got talking to one of the employees, he gives me a hell of deal, $1 each! But am I really putting my really really extra low mileage 954 at risk if I try and use these?

Please if anyone has any insight or input, please don't hold back.

I agree.
Since you have such low mileage I'm guessing you aren't changing the filter very often anyway.

the motorcycle specific fram filter is a PH6017A. the following are automotive filters what have the same thread/diameter, however the 3.25 inch filters probably won't clear the headers:

Just as an additional note, NAPA Gold filters are made by Wix and are identical specs to the Wix line which is one of the best filters out there.

Thanks for the info on those filters. I really only purchased them because I noticed they were really small, and only being a $1 I almost couldn't pass them up.

I actually think that Walmart SuperTech filter sounds like the best bang for the buck. I think the price at my local Walmart was $2.84. What was disappointing was finding those same headlight bulbs for like $4.48 when I paid $6.99 each at Advance Auto.
