I am avoiding my dealer as they are horrible and 50 miles away, so I'd just like to order a filter online. Where do you guys buy all your parts from?
The longer filter makes it a WHOLE lot easier to install / remove as well... no more pain therePurolator Pure One PL14610 from Pep Boys. It will be about 1/2 longer then stock but is highly recommended. I've put a combined 37k miles on Triumph triples running this filter.
Hey excellent. I use Pure One on my commuter and my race car with excellent results, glad to know there's an app for the bikePurolator Pure One PL14610 from Pep Boys.

Yes I am a fool that pays a little more. I use the filters my dealer sells, the Triumph ones. I buy alllll my Triumph stuff, oil-filters-seals-chains-gaskets etc etc from Great Bay Triumph. I call up, they have my info on record, they ship right to my shop. No need to drive anywhere. They have never let me down. But, like I said in another post...that is just me. Running my own business, this kind of ease in ordering what I need and prompt shipping-makes life that much easier for me.I am avoiding my dealer as they are horrible and 50 miles away, so I'd just like to order a filter online.

I am not asking for a branded oil filter, but one that is made by the OEM manufacturer. I could care less if it says Triumph on it as long as the filter I am using is made by the same people who make the filter for Triumph. So your statement is not correct - however I asked who makes the Triumph filter and no one has answered that (maybe no one knows, although it shouldn't be too hard to find out).Here is what I don't get, what is your aversion to aftermarket filters? Do you have some proof that they are inferior to OE filters?
As far as OE parts go they can only be sold by, you guessed it OE. There are dealers who advertise online such as Great Bay Triumph but in the end you will never find a Triumph OE filter in Parts R Us.
Of course not, and no where did I say that. I don't know why you'd assume I think Triumph makes their own filters? I didn't say that anwhere.So who do you think makes OE filters? The OE? Do you think that GM makes all their GM filters? Do you think Ford builds Motorcraft filters? How about your Viper? Mopar filters? No. There are about 5 filter manufacturers and they manufacturer about 85% of the filters for OE outside of small engine.
Yet agan no where did I say that. And the Viper is not a very advanced engine (don't tell my Viper friends I said that!). However, there is a specific mopar filter for the Viper, as it holds a higher oil pressure than their regular mopar filter (this was a running change around 2006).So your viper filter is made by either Wix or Puro on any given day as are the AC Delco filters, Motorcraft filters. So if a Wix/Puro is good enough for your Viper isnt it good enough for your Sprint, not matter what label is on it?
Bosch is generally an aftermarket filter, not OEM. You have three OEM manufacturers for most European cars: Mann, Mahle, and Hengst. I rarely get filters from the dealer for any of my other cars (or past cars), and just order from a store that carries the OEM filter (non-branded).Bosch has some Mercedes OE work and many European manufacturers.
Mann Filters headquartered in Germany is huge in European cars and is OE even in its Yellow and Green packaging on BMW, Mercedes, Jaguar and Land Rover. Most times they will be private branded but you will see Yellow and Green MANN labeled filters. Personally MANN is my favorite and offers exceptional value.
