I purchased a yamaha paper oil filter from my local dealer and they charged me $18.09. I decided that was the last oil filter I would buy from them at a 400% mark up. I started searching and found some people here talking about HiFLO.

I found a website that was selling them and purchased 3 for a total cost of $5.99 ea including shipping. That's a big diff. in price. The filters look the same except one has yellow paper and the other has red paper. Both have the same metal with rubber on both ends. I took a picture showing the filter and box with part # so you could see what I'm talking about. Save yourself some money if your using paper filters and check these out.

This sport is expensive enough without paying that much money for a oil filter. :cry:

How about sharing the link to the website where you ordered the filters.

I bought 6 of those from CycleGear.com for 3.99 each plus shipping. Total cost to me was $25.
A-hooles at the dealer jacked me for $13 for a filter. Never again.
