2012 Wee Oil Filter

Does anyone know if the oil filters are unchanged for the 2012? I've been looking on fleabay and it shows the Gladius motor uses the same filter as the earlier Wees (HF-138, KN-138, etc). I want to make sure before I do my first oil change.

Can't you just call a dealer and ask?

It's the same.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html
