I dont know anyone that uses it!!!...I have asked alot of guys if they want to try it and if they know anyone that does uses it...Everyone is a bit skepticle about using it, as I am too!!!...We say to each other try it and let me know how it works!!!
It's $120.00 and makes the oil change process alot longer because you have to wash it with anything you want, making sure all the oil is out and wait for it to dry!!!
A snap-ring holds the element into a cool aluminum housing,you remove the spirol ring and the filter element comes out.You can wash it with solvent(I use mineral spirits then spray thru it from the inside with brake clean) It also has a magnet built into it.Check scottsonline.com also have seen the add for them in Cycleworld I think.Got it from Internationalcyclesport(714)596-6934
Forgot to mention it comes with a strap type filter wrench.As far as how many reuses tho o ring will last I`d guess as long as you dont tear it it will not require replacing.818 248-2453 is the number for Scotts,if you call them post what they say is the life expectancy for the o ring is.By the way Farm Boy do you wear overalls when you ride your 12 ?
Been using my Scotts filter for over a year now and it works great. Oh my god, it does actually take another five minutes to clean and reassemble the filter...please! It gives you the chance to let ALL the oil drain from your 12 and also inspect the filter for tiny debris and shavings that might go otherwise unnoticed. A good way to pick up on early bearing failure or worse! As for the o-ring, no wear and no tears noticed after seven oil changes. I change my oil every thousand miles so my filter has almost paid for itself in one year.
I've been here. Just didn't login for a while. Been working on getting my street R1 up to speed (many mods) and putting my new R1 racebike together. Don't worry bro, I am still madly in love with my 12. Got her back from the dealer after the wiring harness transplant. I missed her so much while she was gone (3 weeks in the shop) I haven't touched the R1's since.
