I have no trouble spending a few more smackers for something like a fillter that could add many miles to the bikes life if it works and I do use there air fillters in all my cars & but being washable they pay for themselves.
I use it. Any filter that fits a 2000 Ducati 900 or 750 ss and many many more models and years, will fit and supersede any filter for a Norton. Like DogT said, oil filters on a Norton is an after thought (for the most part) although a good after thought.
This is a free flow, low bypass, anti drain back filter that has a larger capacity than most. Welded 17mm nut makes the day. It's easy to get, $13.99 with free shipping when purchased right from K&N.http://www.knfilters.com/search/product ... rod=KN-153
Better to be the one who understands than the one who needs to be understood.
I believe this philosophy to be a choice rather than a happenstance.
