CASTROL Power RS Racing 4T Synthetic High Performance Motor Oil is on sale now. I just bought 4 of them at Cycle Gear in Fullerton, CA. They are on sale until 8/8. You can get them online too.

Rotella is good stuff. I've been using it my bikes for quite some time. You can get the oil filters on eBay. Just make sure the seller has the right filter listed for your application. Sometimes they mix them up. Check the filter manufacturer's website to be sure.

Sorry for the necrobump but this thread was the first google result for "s1000rr oil filter". I want to add a caveat about buying from Amazon, a website that i am totally addicted to like a brat with daddys money in a mall. I bought several filters last time, and although they were housed in a place that doesnt see extreme colds or heat, i think the gasket on them went dry to the point of causing leaks. I just put my last two on the bike and both have a slow yet annoying leak. They were KNs btw.

I suggest buying over the counter at a place that has a lot of foot traffic, to make sure it hasnt sat on a shelf long.

Liter bikes are like sexy women...

Good to know but i like having something to grab on to in case i need to get rough. That firm nipple projecting itself makes it just right for my ratchet needs.

In hindsight, i would recommend to anyone buying a filter online to coat the gasket with oil for 10 minutes or more in case its dry, before putting it on the engine. Just for the hell of it, i plan to do that for all oil filters in the future...maybe even 24 hours before.

To each his own, but the OEM filter has grooves that fit the filter tool which has a 1/2" drive. So you get OEM filter quality and a firm grip in case you get rough

here is a link to the tool

Just finish changing oil for Taz.

Oil filter from SJ Beemer since I was there. I know it was bling but moving forward it will be from Amazon.
Oil from Amazon.
