Hey Guys

I do most of my maintenance (except valve clearances :frown2:).

Time for an oil change:nerd:. The online fiche says the SC oil filter is a 444.4.003.4A. Simple enough.

But I was sent a ..5A filter last year by NJ dealer "Ducati has replaced the 4A with the 5A."

Fair enough - except this year I get a ...7A filter!

When I asked dealer: "Ducati has replaced filter with this one."

4A...5A....7A!!

These filters are all the same size externally, but I didn't think to look at the holes on inside on previous filters.

Does anyone know what the right filter is? Are the 4A, 5A, 7A etc all the same? If yes, why change the reference number :think:.

Appreciated.

it's just a part number supercession for whatever reason they see fit. 5 was quite a bit shorter than 4, not seen a 7.
