I just bought 3 for $23 using pvkeepsyouboating for free shipping. $7.xx for the OEM is the best price I have seen.

I changed oil shortly out of the box, as it was already two years old, and then swapped the filter at 550 miles. A goodly amount of oil does drop, unlike other Stars. I filled the filter and let it sit, and I thought I was being quick; it felt like not much more than when I do it to my Road Star, but I lost enough oil to drop the level below the stick, even on it's side, cold. The manual states that basically, the tank gets narrow at the top, I think it reads, "...the level will rise more quickly as the tank is filled".
The oil light has not lit, and I have not warmed it yet, as I've been installing the auxiliary lights.

I changed just my filter and measured the oil loss. I believe total oil loss was 8 Oz. There is another thread about it called "bike eating itself".

By the way, I'm in the middle of some current research on oil filters. When in the past we've looked at Fram filters, we have always seen the standard Extra Guard that's been cut apart and has the cardboard ends. They also have a model made for 20,000 mile oil changes and synthetic oil called the Ultra Synthetic that when cut apart is a big step above the Extra Guard. It seems to be made at least comparable to any other top brand. I will get back on this, but what I'm seeing is an eye opener. We may be wrong to equate all filters from any company as being the same quality.
