You can get them on ebay for really cheap, get the metal ones then you can clean them, they cost a little more, but you will save in the long run

I second the ebay one. Just type in WR in the search bar and you will find a guy selling packs of 5 for about $23! Just make sure its for the 400/426, as the 450 filter is a little different. I bought a 5 pack from him when I had my 426 also, bought another batch for my 450. The earleir 400/426 filters are a little bit more $ than the 450, but still a killer deal compared to what your spending now.

i just ordered one from the TT store,it was only $63. i've been using the screen type from the 426's but they just don't filter as well as the scotts and i also believe the paper ones offer a little too much flow resistance,especially if a little water gets in your oil then its all blown right thru the bypass (no filtration) :)

OK, I take that back, the Scotts site says $69.95, that is still a crapload of $ for a filter.

Cycle Gear $3.99, just look for the HiFlo in the green boxes. Lots of dealers carry them.

I don't know if this might help you out, but I found out that my Dad's Warrior ATV takes the same filter as my WR 400. Might be worth a look in your quest for cheap filters. I buy the $10 metal ones, but I usually clean them out instead of replacing them, so long as the screen is still in good condition.

The Yamaha filters are going for over $11 at my Yamaha dealer. I change my filter every other trip out. $70 is cheap over the long run

I use the K&N 142 filter, its metal and seems to filter just fine. I've cleaned it and used it for a year now and its held up fine (so has my motor). And the best part it sells for $9.95.

Exactly! If you clean the filter $10 is not a bad price. If you change the filter every oil change, then $10 is a lot and $70 is not so bad. :)

No man I think you read that wrong. I clean and reuse my $10 oil filter.

No, I am agreeing with you, read my post again... I'm saying that $10 (1x) for a lot of oil changes is cheap, but $10 for every oil change is a lot of cash, hence the $70 would be cheaper after 8 oil changes. :)
