Purchasing Oil Filters

Is there a good site to purchase OEM oil filters at a reasonable price that don't rip you on shipping costs or do most of you use aftermarket filters? I haven't checked with the K dealer yet but if it's like Honda you'll spend $12 on a filter that I can buy for around $6-7 from a web based retailer.

You can buy quality filters locally for next to nothing at Walmart or numerous auto parts stores. There is a thread that has all filters (both short and long) that fit the Versys and each one's part/model number. Simple, easy and cheap. Do a search under "Technical Discussions" and Invader has been so gracious as to provide the list. I use Purolator.

Red Herring likes his Fram Tough Guard TG7317 in the slightly longer size, available at Wal Mart for a few bucks each... I was lucky enough to get a great deal on a batch of 6 Nippon/Denso oil filters in the 7317 size on Ebay.

Go to the Technical Discussion part of this forum. There is an OIL CHANGE sticky for you to peruse. Bring a beer or two, a pad and a pencil. Oil types and filters usage are liberally sprinkled throughout.

The Walmart ST7317 is a perfet match. I've used them with no problem and they cost about 2.50 each or something like that.

The Supertech filters are quality. They are made my Champion Labs, or at least used to be. The consensus among oil geeks is that they are of better quality than Fram.

The Purolator Pure One oil filter, PL14610, is suppose to be 99.9% efficient. It's a little longer than the stock oil filter and cost a little less than $8.00. I bought mine at Advanced Auto Parts.
