Where do you get your bike oil filter from?

Spent the last few hours looking for a place that had my oil filter in stock. Autozone didn't have it. Neither did Napa. What sucked was I called Napa and they said they had it and when I got there, they said they didn't. WTF. so I checked Oreilly's. They found one at another store so it's going to get shipped to the store closest to me. I thought I was going to be able to change out my oil after I got home from work this morning but doesn't look like I'll do it today.

The shops were an option but they're kind of out of my way. I guess I'll just stock up next time I am near one.

I see Whoopie and buy a few at a time. I only buy K&N because they have the nut welded on and it's a breeze to remove them with a standard wrench.

I buy K&N for the same reason. Cycle gear is the closest to me and they always have them in stock.

I buy mine at cycle gear only K&N because it's a zillion times easier to take off then a honda filter.

WalMart stocks fram oil filters for bikes... I pay $5 for mine and run rotella with lucas additive... bike has 65k miles and still pulls strong. I change my oil every 4k miles (the lucas extends the service time) and mix the lucas 70%/30%(ish) with the oil (more oil than additive).

another option is to mail order them and get them half dozen at a time... I just don't see the point unless you're really particular to K&N products.

Just my 2 cents.

WIX filter at O-Riellys, or K&N

Stay far away from FRAM...
