Try Scott they make a stainless steel oil filter, a bit on the expensive side but according to them it stops particals up to three times smaller than the stock filters.

K+n Filters As Well As "emgo" Make Good Semi-cheap Paper Filters. The Scotts Stainless Is Good But You Still Need To Clean It,AND I HATE DIRTY-OILY HANDS.
Now If I Could Only Find $3.00 Air Filters...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nitrile gloves. Buy 'em, wear 'em & toss 'em= clean hands & less toxic stuff absorbed by your thirsty hide for your poor liver to process.

So true. Never heard it put like that. Me, I'm past worrying about it.

motorcycles+ using them+changing oil after every time out= dirty hands. OK, so unless you have an unlimited supply of cash get dirty, working on a bike is half the fun. (most of the time) I have a stainless steel oil filter in all my bikes and the only thing I was told was to be careful how you clean it. I was using contact cleaner and was told that it will eat the rubber seals on the inside. So I was told to use gas. I think that contact cleaner is ok. Either way for $35.00 and countless oil changes still beats $12.00 every weekend. after 3 weeks I am allredy ahead.

I use a mason jar full of Coleman white gas. The SS filter goes right in, soaks for about 5 minutes, a little shaky-shake and out it comes, clean as a whistle, no muss, no fuss...SC

What year is you bike? If it's 03 and up you are paying way too much!
