If you want you can just use a ready filter and they are reusable to a certain extent. As for oil No-Toil is probably the easiest to use

I use Kawichem on my new bike, I figure that if I have any warranty issues they can't bring up the "what oil were you using". LOL

Thanks for the reply.

I tried to search on the site various times throughout the day and kept getting an error that the server was too busy and to try later, thats why I posted the question. I knew that I would be able to search and find the answer, but could not get the search to work.

I too use motul 3000 series, 10W 40. I also have a stainless steel oil filter. Both are great!
