Anyplace you get Purolator filters can get them.I guess I would buy their ML line up if someone in this state sold them. The problem I have with Moto filters is the premium pricing. It's BS. Just because I ride a motorcycle doesn't mean we have to pay top dollar for everything.
I seriously doubt a metal cased moto oil filter is made any different than a metal cased car filter.
I see....I'm talking about cost, not how it works.
Some of it will have to do with popularity... For instance, a Kawi filter vs: a Suzuki filter. The Suzuki filter doesn't fit too much else other than a Suzuki and a couple other things... The Kawi filter, fits late model Honda, Yamaha, Victory and some Triumphs. Thats just off the top of my head.
Now take a look at the auto side of it. The filter that has the same thread and O-ring fits Many vehicles including Acura, Mazda, Toyota, Lexus, Pontiacs etc...
A short production run has to be figured into the cost.
The Best isn’t cheap
Cheap isn’t The Best
Sometimes you wonder what goes through their minds.Yea, Suzuki went their own way on the oil filter thread size/count. Most every other bike is M20-1.50 threads. I guess they did that to keep people/mechanics from using anything but a moto filter?
