FWIW, Check out Hi-Flo/Filtro filters. They are the same inside as a K&N, only without the stamped metal 17mm "nut" on the end of the canister and they are less expensive. I worked at a bike shop on my off days for 14 years and we never had an issue with either one.

Do you know the HF # for the FZ-09?

Making me miss my 6R, its a fun bike without all the terror of the 09. I had to try very hard to wheelie it or hit the throttle too hard. I'm not complaining just reminiscing.

Same here, I traded my 6r for the fz9 but my fz6r will always be remember, great bike overall: Body position, engine power, forgiveness etc.
I have a bunch of K&N 204 from my 6r that will keep using on the 9ner.

I know that Citgo bottles up Yamalube for the US market (if not more), and I've heard that HiFloFiltro makes the Yamaha oil filters. HiFiltro also makes K&N filters (the nut on the end and the packaging/price are the differences). I guess with the nut you would need just a 17mm wrench for the oil plug and the filter - but I don't think that much convenience is worth $2 a pop. I'm going to cut open my used Yamaha filter and compare it to a HiFiltro...

the yamaha oil filter is made by denso.
Denso - with paper end caps and pleats running the other way? Eek! I need to cut my used one open and look at it. I paid $11 for a Yamaha filter to do my first oil change. I just bought 3 HiFlo HF204's delivered for $7.85 each (no tax) to do my next 3. I wish HiFlo's used a coil spring instead of their flat spring (I don't know why I wish that) - but other than that I like that the end pleats are connected by a crimped piece of metal (not glued), and they have metal endcaps.

not sure about the paper end caps, but the pleats look like what we're used to (iirc....i'll confirm later tonight). you might be thinking of an older denso design that yamaha used to use.
