Depends on how many filters one uses.

Dealer wants 12 plus tax plus and shipping or a 10 mile drive during their limited days and hours. If I'm in the 24 hr Wally once a week anyway a few bucks plus tax is convenient and could add up in time and money if piling up commuting miles year round.

I guess for me the extra time it takes and few extra $ is worth the piece of mind of knowing it will always fit correctly. I would hate to always be watching to make sure the manufacturer didn't switch anything and all of a sudden the filter I always use is now leaking or doesn't fit at all.

No extra time since I check every filter even OEM the same way for peace of mind. Dealers and Denso can make mistakes.

I used the Bosch 3323 for about $7 on Amazon. Actually I used Bosch on my cars as well. No problems.

oil filters

I just found a web site that carries HF303RC oil filters for $5.93. Order $49 worth and get free ship.
I'm been using 303 on my Kawasaki, Subaru and Yamaha. I love the 17mm welded nut on the end. I read someplace that HF makes K/N filters. They sure do look the same.
My Suzuki takes HF138RC.

If you don't use the oem filter your bike will explode and if you have a gen2 the frame will crack. And then explode. Or maybe it will explode first and then crack. Hard to say.

Been using the cheapest easiest to come by filters since 83. Possibly 77. Not sure but I think there was a hydraulic filter you could use on the 77 BMW. Prior bikes had no filters, spinning filtration, or were two strokes.

Tried hard, no explosions. Cracked a subframe and saddlebag brackets though. Triumph fenders. Plastic body work. Windshields (bird strikes). Maybe a bolt or two. 1/4 inch ratchet. couple other things?

So, which ones does Walmart carry?

let's go way back, 1967. My Dad bought me a 1962 Studebaker Daytona for $325. It had a V8, 4 speed, bucket seats and twin traction rearend. It had 80,000 miles on the speedometer. That engine had NO oil filter! I found a canister oil filter housing that used a paper element from a 1955 Studebaker Speedster and installed it. I sold this car 7 years later with 158,000. I used 30-weight oil and STP.
I wish I still had it.

Update on the Bosch, they have changed also, put one on the FJR Wednesday night, rode Thursday, go out this morning and it is leaking from the filters o ring. It was convex, not as bad as pictures I have seen and seemed to be sealing but apparently not quite.

I can confirm that NAPA 1358 or 21358 will fit.

Just picked up a Mobil 1 M1-110 yesterday. It looks to be concave, or at least flat. Definitely not convex. I'll check the old one when I remove it, but I would bet at this time they are identical. I think Mobil 1 makes one of the best filters out there. Also use Mobil 1 oil. My FZ1 is worth it!

Me too. I like that I can take it off with standard tools.

Looked the M1-110 on Amazon, it costs $9.00 or so with prime shipping, cheaper than the K&N, but does not have the 17mm nut end.

They spec the max oil pressure in Pascal per square inch, what a strange mix of metric and English units

Personally I tried two different filter removal tools on the stock Yamaha filter and they slip, looks like the filters are a little too small for the tool, so that's why I switched to the K&N with the 17mm nut end.
I am surprised few people indicated problems in that area.
I may try the HF303RC next time.

There was a thread for modifying the part the filter screws on to to accept the new design.
Forget if I saw it on this sight.
