OEM Oil Filter Manufacturer?
We all should realize that Ducati does NOT manufacture their own oil filters, but contract the service out, instead, so.......Anyone know who manufactures the OEM oil filters for Ducati? If so, their filters for Ducatis should be the exact same as OEM, but with a different paint-job on them....
Example: I used to work for Cooper Industries, owners of Champion Spark Plugs while I worked there (maybe they still own them, but I'm not sure). Anyway, the Harley Davidson "brand" spark plugs were made by Champion, and for my bike, they are the same plugs that are used in several cars (I have the cross-reference guide at home, somewhere). Anyway, Harley charged $5.95 PER PLUG, but if my local Auto Zone had a sale, I could get the exact same plug for $0.69, just that it said "Champion" instead of "Harley Davidson" on it, so.....
