I have three selections of oil filters for Ducati owners. The two are the HiFloFiltro brand. Made in Taiwan to industrial spec, these oil filters exceed OEM specifications for filtration, and are fast becoming the #1 motorcycle oil filter in the world. These come in the basic design plus a racing design with a nut on the bottom similar to the K&N to facilitate safety wiring and install/removal via the nut. The third option is the more expensive K&N brand oil filter, known for the large nut welded to the bottom of the filter. This nut makes it a cinch to install and remove the filter with a wrench or socket. Filtration of all three filters is comparable in terms of performance.

NOTE1: When tightening the oil filter, I only do so by hand. If you tighten/torque it during installation it will seize. Oil filters tighten over time. Hand tight only.
