    108$ oil filters???

    So out of boredom I went on e-bay and put a search on for TW200 and I keep seeing someone trying to get $108.99 for an oil filter. Am I missing something here? What the hell kind of oil filter could possibly be worth $109? Has anyone actually spent $109 on an oil filter? If so you must really love your TW!

    Mines in solid gold with a diamond filter medium. For that price it must be a poorly made one.

    maybe it's the yamaha price for an OEM screen filter?

    Why would you buy oil filters when the factory one can be cleaned indefinitely?
    .....And a paper filter would almost have to be more restrictive than the factory screen....
    All on a bike engine that is sensitive to upper engine flow.

    If you believe the people on this forum, they're all reusable.

    Some Ebay sellers take advantage of that old saying, "There is a sucker born every minute". Don't be surprised to see one of them buy that filter. I have seen a few times guys selling totally used and worn out front sprockets from a 1987 TW for more than the cost of a new one and claiming they are very rare. I go by that other old saying, " A fool and his money are soon parted".

    I actually questioned a seller on ebay about his high price. I didn't expect to get an answer because I wasn't all that polite when I asked, but he did answer. here was his reason. he said he jacked up his price so high that nobody would buy, because he didn't have any. he said it was easier to keep his listing going while he was out of stock, than to take his listing down and relist when his items came back in stock. sounds a bit like fraud to me
