    I used a HifloFiltro on my last change. They were like only $6 compaired to $12 for the Suzuki filter. the funny thing is the exact same numbers were stamped on both filters so they may even make the OEM filter. The model is HF138.

      No substitute for OEM in my book.
      I think they're worth a few extra bucks

            That's actually an older study. Fram motorcycle filters have changed since then and are supposedly much improved. I still use the OEM's as I don't pay for oil changes.

              I hate to say it but I use fram filters. I have used them on all my bikes for years and have not had a problem, maybe dumb luck.

                    I've had a Scott's filter twice so far.... Once on my stolen TLS which only had 89 miles on the filter when she was obducted! now I've got a TLR and will change the oil at the end of the season since I won't go over my mileage. I'll take pics etc and show you guys when I do it!
