      I think a hand full of Emgo's from Hord would be a better deal. Part peace of mind part..... well, ok full peace of mind.

        i agree with tusk

        first they dont give a brand
        second theres not seal with the lil plastic on them
        third the one laying on its side looks like its got a dent in it


        but that price is nice, one emgo from hord cost about the same has all three.

          IMO you get what you pay for with filters. My faves are 1) OEM 2) HiFlo 3) Emgo. A lot of the others seem to have thin construction that easily distorts the base plate when tightened. One of my racer dudes was using K&N and had 2 (!) of them blow out the o-rings. I switched him over to HiFlo and end of problem. The Fram fiasco from a few years back is well-known too. Remember, that $2 you save on a no-name filter could mean your ass sliding down the road. I don't care where people get filters, just make sure you get something reputable. I think everybody should safety-wire them too, even streetbikes.

                        Ever since I started working for an acura certified car dealer, I will only buy oem parts for my bikes or my cars, unless modifying it. There are too many problems with no name after market products, the few bucks you save just arn't worth it. And as for safety wiring your bike. I'm with JD, I run my bike street only, but my oil filter and drain plug are both wired, just a little piece of mind for myself.
                        90 Hawk. What can I do to make it better?
                        78 yz125. What can I do to destroy this thing?

                            WIX 51356 3.25 inches long, either will fit.
