that Flo reusable filter is pretty good. I used it before in my ZX14 for over 9000 miles and never had problems. and it's cheaper than the other brand reusable filters. only thing is that it comes with two O rings only to replace when they start getting squashed from use.

the typical filter used for most benz engines is about $20 and its just a filter element with a few o rings, no metal housing. Everyone has to make there 40-50% margin so every time you add a middle man you almost double the price. Stock Filter manufacturer->Ducati it.->ducati NA-> dealership
or
Manufacturer(k&N) -> wholesaler->independent dealer. which one has fewer steps? which one is cheaper?

Besides I think it's the ducati label printed on the box that is made from the cheetah sperm, many parts you can get from the original manufacturer without the ducati box and they cost less than 1/4 the price. Its like air mass sensors on a Benz- get one from the dealer in an MB box$600, get a bosch labelled part (same manufacturer- even has the mb emblem cast in the plastic on the part) from pep boys or advance auto $200.

I'm sure the factory ferrari stuf is printed with dodo sperm to up the price even more.

Fu-k me you people want to own a brand of premium bike and then bitch and moan about the price of spares. You should know this before you buy the bike.
If you are going to bitch and moan about such things you are the wrong person for this machine.
Go and get a jap bike if you don't like it, it will be a better bike and more reliable.
You are paying for exclusivity.
It's all a wank and we all should know it but we don't want to have the same thing everyone else has.

You must not like your SUV very much.

I use the above in my '00 GSXR-750 that I've owned for almost 10 years now. I'd say it's only worth it for the long haul and you never have to worry about running out of filters, especially if you use it for a trackbike and change much more often. Buy a couple of extra seals though, I never trust the reuseable type and you don't want to get caught leaking.

Oil filters are the only thing I go out of my way to use OEM. If your engine spins a bearing or worse, Ducati will void your warranty if using after market filters no matter how good they are. It's a big risk.

Fortunately no. If you read the fine print on most vehicle warranty they specify to use only "genuine parts". It's a get out of jail free clause for manufacturers of any breed.

Hi sweatass, I think you might be in the wrong forum for sexual fantasies. Try this link instead: "http://im-a-gaybo-butt-bandit.com"
