Sorry that I don't meet your criteria. I'm more of a "do it now" kind of guy rather than an "order a few to have on hand" kind. My local auto parts stores always have on the shelf at least 4 different quality filters that are still innies. I walk in, grab the stuff and change the oil. It's not about about price to me, I never said it was. Its about being in my hand when I want it to be. Whether ordering one "on the Internet" or from a dealership, what's the diff? I'd still be waiting on a trivial part like a filter.

It's a generic part that can be had in numerous ways- there doesn't have to be a "do it my way" mentality about it.

And if this fault wrecks your engine, Yamaha is your only port of call for a new engine. Fit any other filter and you are on your own!

N4HHE If filter destroys your engine then you file a claim with the filter vendor.

If you are using anything other than what the vendor/manufacturer/distributor specifies for your engine then you are up the proverbial creek without a paddle.

Fits cars so not fitting on motorcycle is a deliberate design by Yamaha.

filter assembly

I would tend to think that it is a manufacturing fault. IE. assembled upside down !

RaYzerman Sure you can do that, but how long to spin up one of those. Perhaps nobody does it because it's only a Yamaha problem with the adapter, and you can chuck it in a lathe in like the few minutes it takes to get it out. Why make it way harder than it is?
John, check the latest Pure Ones.... which you shouldn't be using anyway, IMHO.
