I found some on ebay... 10 of em for around 25-30 bucks. Work on rinny and rubi and a couple of the bikes. Sweet deal... not genuine honda, but probably the same manufacturer, since honda doesn't really make filters.
What about oil? Have any of you guys looked at finding oil other than the $3.50 or $7.00 a quart oil from honda. I just haven't made it out anywhere to look, but man was I suprised when I paid for my oil change.
Autozane may have the filters two. They carry STP ones for 400ex cheaper than the dealers.
My dealer charges $14 each plus tax. I found a deal on some WIX filters for $7 each. Has anyone ever used these before? I don't like the idea of paying $14 for a filter, but on the other hand I would rather pay a little now than a lot later with engine problems due to using cheap filters.
i bought a frame oil filter from advance auto part, $7.00. dealer told me not to use them because they don't let the oil filter though fast enough. any truth to this? frames been around a while, i trust them.

I changed the oil for the first time and boy was I surprised at the cost of filter and oil. Q thanks for the info on the dealer. I called they will ship the filter. It cost $6.99 and it is a honda part.
