Oil Filter Acquisition Trends

So, quick question just out of curiosity.
When you buy your oil filters, do you buy them from the dealer or are you getting them elsewhere?

My first and last trip to the dealer was when I bought the bike.

I think that's the best price I've seen on those filters. Good link!

I'm assuming the oil filter hasn't changed through the years on the KLR eh?

Hey Tom. Have you ever had any fit issues with those filters? I've read a few places that the seals don't fit the shaft at times...

It's not free shipping. It says free until you go to check out. Then it makes you subscribe of course. Once that's done, it tacks on a minimum $10 shipping fee.
