Oil filters

Hello,
Can anyone tell me who might carry or make an after market oil filter for a 2010 T-Bird such as Fram or K&N, Vesrah, etc. and what the part #'s would be in case for some reason the local Triumph shop doesn't have 1? Appreciate it everyone.

Fast eddy has the K&N...

Say away from car filters even tho they seem to work fine, the bypass valves are set for a much different pressure point than the bike filter. I used them for a long time till i realized this and researched it. You won't notice unfiltered oil circulating thru the engine so you may never see any difference. But thats obviously not a good thing.

I agree, bike-specific oil filters are the way to go! K&N is a good choice although the OEM filter is the recommended option.

By the way, eddy's price is including shipping so thats the total. I like buying from him whenever possible because he's a good guy and has the best customer service you'll find. Plus he rides a Bird.

Just was at autozone and i noticed they are carrying a line of motorcycle filters from Fram. Don't know how good Fram generally is, but they are $6.99 and they have one for the bird. It doesn't list the bird but it lists the speedmaster which uses the same filter so in effect it is for the tbird.
