Last I was told it is a very fine micromesh metal filter that captures the particles a paper filter would normally recover. It is cleanable for reuse with just a gasket seal replacement.

Yep.

I had one on my 01 R6 and didn't think anything of it when I traded it in. About a week later I looked and saw how much they were worth.

I changed the oil several times on the 01 and loved this thing. Granted this is the new model so it is slightly different from my old one but it was so easy to clean. Oil filters add up after a while so this thing pays for itself. When it's time to change oil you simply take it off, inspect it, clean it with kerosene or similar solvent, reinstall.

It is not a paper filter, but has very fine steel mesh that traps particles better than paper. I have wanted one since I got my 08 but never got around to buying one (more of a instant gratification kinda guy) and always was buying other for the bike. But these are def worth the investment.

Gimme about a month or two, I ride alot and change oil around every 2k (because I am paranoid like that). So it won't be long til it's time to pull this off and clean it. I will take pics and write it up so all you guys can see just how cool these are.

On the question of cost, everywhere online I found it was $150-170 plus shipping. My ol ladies brother special ordered it from some company through Cycle Gear for $119.

can someone explain how this is a good investment? I change my oil every 3000 miles and I pay 5 bucks for an oil filter. if it costs 120 dollars, that means it would take 24 oil changes for it to pay for itself which equals to about 72,000 miles. how many people keep their bikes for 72,000 miles plus you don't have to clean the regular filters; you just slap it on. i'm not hating or anything; the filter looks cool as but i'm not seeing the payoff if you're buying the thing to save money..

I think they are a great idea.. one exception.. i dont think i want kerosene or any cleaning solvent mixing with my oil.. we know they all thin the oil and clean what ever we put it on.. so if you dont get it really dry.. or even any dirty stuff left in it with solvent in it.. when the hot oil passes thru it wont it tend to thin the oil and wipe down the surfaces we are trying to lubricate.. let us know how you like it..

My oil filter is around $15. So that is 3x the cost of yours which would get me to the price of this filter a bit quicker. Also convience, and enviromental impact. Something reusable and not thrown away is cool!! Plus looks and durability.

I guess you guys have never cut open your old filters to judge how many 'particles' were filtered out. You are able to inspect your oil filter at every oil change, to see if there are any particles of trash in your filter - Similar to a magnetic drain plug in the sense that you are able to see how much metal deposits were collected. Hence, you are able to know when you have a problem before you have a problem, Preventative maintenance! Actually, it takes preventative maintenance to a whole new level .
