Another option you can consider is ordering paper filters over the internet. Many times you can save substantially over what the dealer will charge for them.
Hope this helps a little.

So tell me why I need to spend a hundred bucks on a stainless filter ?
I think it's just another ploy to pry more money out of our wallets. I have 3 years worth of using the same brass filters to prove that they are more than adequate.

Scotts filters are rated at 35 microns, typical quality paper filters like the K&N are rated at 10 microns, not 300 to 900.
The advantage to the Scotts is it's durability which gives it the ability to be cleaned and re-used for most likely the life of the bike. As far as providing engine protection the paper filter has a ever so slight edge, if even measurable over the life of the engine.
My suggestion is this: If you do alot of racing/riding and are changing your oil often you'll be better served by the Scott's. If you are the occaisional rider then go with the paper filters.
