Oil filter

Can I get an oil filter for my bike at a regular auto perts store or do I need to track down a bike shop or stealer(oops, did I say that out loud? clearly I meant my friendly, well meaning and honest dealer) to get one? When I relace one should it just be hand tight like on a car?

So, why is a raven like a writing desk?

Most any auto parts place.

That's the one I've been using for over a year without a problem, and it comes in black.

Get a gallon jug of oil too from Wally World and don't spend more than 15 bux for both.

Just sayin...

A friend just picked up 5 of these for me, while down in Montana, at $2.86 each. Less than half what NAPA wanted for their Gold filter.

But not every Wal-Mart has the right filter.

I like WIX 51356 from O'Riley, or NAPA 1356 made by WIX.
