You can get an excellent filter, either the long or the short from Wally world.
WalMart SuperTech ST6607 2.5"
WalMart SuperTech ST7317 3.25"
They sell for about $2.90 I think. I've used about half a dozen on my machine that's got over 21kmiles on it, changing them about every 3000miles.

I second the Wally World filters, my only regret is the moral quagmire of buying from that particular establishment.

With amazon you buy 6 filters for $29.80 and get free shipping and no tax that's less then 5 bucks on a filter per oil change. You won't have to buy filters until 21K on your versys

How often are you changing your oil/filter? The manual says you can do it every 7,500 miles...

I have not read the manual on services , I had a aprillia scarabeo and i changed the oil every 3K because i rode it hard and i am 325lbs so i put some stress on the engine

As far as my versys i am due for the 600 mile break in oil change if the manual on the versys says 7500 miles than you would have enough filters until you reach 45,000 miles.

Here is another question if you buy a case of oil and only use 2 quarts for the versys how long can you keep oil stored in there plastic bottle?

Technically, engine oils have shelf lives of four to five years in a sealed container. The main factor affecting the life of the oil is the storage condition for the products. Store lubricants in a cool, clean and dry indoor area. The ideal storage temperature is between 45F and 80F and at a temperature that does not fluctuate significantly. Common signs of improper storage or contamination of a lubricant may include layering within the fluid, formation of solid particles, and color change or hazy appearance.

7,500 miles is ridiculous, IMHO. I would never go more than 4k without an oil change, especially in an engine that only holds 2 quarts. My plan is to change mine as soon as I get it home from the dealer (about 50 miles), then again at 600 miles, then every 3k from then on.

Invader would this be for conventional oil or synthetic as well?

I'm thinking that oil has been in the ground for millions of years, a few more won't make a difference.

There's a big difference between crude oil and the refined products.

The refined products are still based on the original. I'll admit, this adds a new twist to the usual oil thread.
