No assumptions here....But I hate that argument..... Its specious at best... Damn right I do not wanna piss away money unnecessarily... especially if its less money for what might be a better product... (might be)...

i couldnt agree with you more. a very successful man once told me "the only way to stay poor is to live rich". every dollar counts. as long as you're not spending all day trying to save $25, then saving a quick $25 seems to be a great idea!!! especially when the K&n is more than likely better (equal at worst) to the OEM paper filter from DUC. i couldnt find it with about 30 minutes of searching and calling so i just ordered the OEM. but i certainly tried.
Thanks from Stw

In spect the O-rings for any sign of damage during cover removal. Don't think you need to replace 'em unless you detect a nick/scratch/etc that would keep them from sealing.

Don't reuse crush washers - at least without annealing them. Dunno what Ducati gets for 'em but back when I was changing oil/oil filters every week on race machinery I went to local Advance Auto Parts and got a big handful (correct size) of 'em for a few dollars. They use 'em like candy there for their oil change business so no big deal to score some. Still have a bunch. But if you ever find yourself needing one, just reuse the old one by annealing it first and you're good to do. Though they're so cheap (at least from the Auto Parts guys) it's easier just to reach in to my parts drawer and grab a new one.
