I use HiFlo's... indistinguishable from original.. work fine...

I buy them local for $3.99... Surprised they are so high on Ebay...

Anybody got a cheaper on-line source?...  I seem to remember 3 for $10...

Local? Where?

And is there any from a different bike that would fit?

I also use the Hiflo and got it local from an independent M/C repair shop for just over $4

I use Shell Rotella T (the dino stuff),..
The synth is great, but I'm too cheap to buy it...

I have been changing every 2k,.. but I think I'll go to 3k from now on...
Again,.. 'cause I'm cheap,.. but I think it'll go 3k without any harm...

PS... and now's when everybody tells me I''m wrong...
Go ahead,.. lemme' have it... Grin...

I just wondered if you could get something that fits at Wally World or Autozone etc.
Maybe lawn tractor parts?

Nupe,.. not that I know of...  
It's usually in stock in independent bikes shops though,.. 'cause it fits several different models...

My favorite local shop here is CSA (Cycles,Skis, ATV's...)... Tucson...
I try to do all my local buying at the same shop, so they know me by name...  You can get better deals that way,... and keep a local guy in business...
Wink...

ralfyguy I work for a large mower/small engine dealership. I checked our oil filter stock(all the main engine manufacturers) and found nothing even close to matching our filter.
