Does anyone here run it? I installed mine last night and went for a ride today. A small bead of oil started leaking from around the billet cover. The ready filter only has one opening and I assumed it goes on the same way a stock filter does. But I am not sure. My dealer doesnt know either. So I switched it to see if it would run on the opposite side. Again after about 2 minutes it started leaking again. I took the o-ring out and cleaned the groove on the cover and the face of the oil filter plate and reinstalled. It ran at idle for about 4 minutes then leaked. I cant tighten the billet cover any further and I dont want to damage the bike. Any suggestions? The cover is nice but I cant return it unless it is defective for some reason, but it looks fine. :bonk:

You will need to call them and ask them to send you an over sized "O" ring. I have used these for years and every time I need to ask them for an over sized "O" ring.

I would use the stocker. Like Grey has said in the past. The stocker has a tab so you dont put in the filter backwards.

Yeah I did notice that. I talked to my neighbor and he said the SS filter goes in the same way as the stock one. I do like the tab, but I gave my stock cover to my brother in law already. :bonk: So now I gotta use the ready cover. Oh well. It looks trick and hopefully with the new O-ring it should work fine now.:bonk:

both my dad and i run the ready ss filters and covers on our 06 and 07 and they are fine for us and we used the oem o-ring. maybe yours got warped somehow, call up ready and ask for a replacement.

I have Ready SS filters in both bikes, both leaked on the first ride. I emailed RR and they told me to send them back for replacements. I decided it wasn't worth the shipping that they won't compensate me for. I slapped the stockers back on.

Mine leaks too, I put some silicone in the o-ring grove, let it cure for an hour, the re-installed the o-ring and installed on the bike , it doesn't leak anymore. This is my 2nd cover from them, the first one had a leak around a freeze plug they use to plug a hole they needed to drill in manufacturing.
