DL650 Oil/air filters

I've looked around for oil filters for my Wee and found Amotostuff sells them for cheap...relatively.

Guess I should look for the air filter as well.

What's everyone using and where are you ordering from?

I'll need to do the first oil change soon.

Thanks

Garrett

During your winters do you V owners use a different weight than in the summers?

I use 0W-40 whenever my Wee is in use.

"0w", good grief, well I thought maybe 5w.
I'm in Florida & most of the V riders, that I know, use the 10w all year.
Most of the KLR guys, me included, use 15w or 20w.
Keep warm or come visit.

Guess I wasn't clear. I wanted to know where you guys were ordering your filters from. Air and oil. I got the oil thing figured out.

odd

buying the oil filter keeps them in Biz, but not the air?

cheers!
