    I believe that the number 2 stands for 2 sets, but what do I know.

    not really, I did check them at the EBC site.
    BTW, the front pads are the same as on the Pegaso and BMW F650. BMW p/n 3411 2345 445.
    The rear pads are common with the Falco, Tuono, Ducs ST2-3&4, MultiStrada, etc

    no, the 2 stands for a special version of the pad, means they had to modify an earlier standard pad a bit in order to fit the capo(and maybe also other bikes.)

    so, if you order, make sure you don't forget that "2", or you''l get a slightly different pad!!!

    Is there a no 2 for the rear pads . If thats the case it may explain the huge problems I had with ebc hh in the rear which no one else has had and ebc were not interested in.

    The extra set I have on my garage wall have the # FA209HH
    That is all. No doubt a dealer prompt to make sure two sets are ordered.

    Permanent (washable) oil filter...

    Another oil filter option that I've not seen mentioned yet: Scotts stainless steel filter. You simply wash it out every oil change, should last forever. At $80 it's not exactly cheap, but a few regular filters would add up to the same and with this I don't have to ride out to my Aprilia dealer (45 minutes away) to buy a filter every time I do an oil change.

    I installed one a few hundred miles ago. So far no problems.

    What would you define as a problem, and how would you know if you had it? But aside from that, have you gotten any benefits...other than the total BS on their website? Personally, I'd sooner wash my used toilet paper than fool around washing used oil filters. At least with the toilet paper, I'd know when I'd gotten all the "dirt" out.

    Hi Stu,

    Thank you for your feedback, even if it is a bit high on inflammatory language and low on content...

    To answer your questions: I would define "a problem" as excessive engine wear, which would happen if the filter is not doing its job. The benefit(s) I get is not to have to run out for a filter when I do an oil change, it pays for itself after a few changes, and I like the idea and convenience of re-use rather than throwing away. As to the first, I'll send out an oil sample for analysis (breakdown of metal content/type) with the next oil change and let you know, probably do that again a few oil changes down the road to see if the thing keeps performing.

    Now it's my turn: What exactly is the BS you're mentioning? Their claims seem pretty reasonable to me (as far as their filter is concerned, I've not looked into performance of paper filters and assume they are portrayng them worse than they actually are). As an engineer, I don't see how designing a permanent oil filter is all that hard, these things are not rocket science. One can buy stainless filter membrane sheets with just about any size holes, including 35 micron, so that ain't hard to make or use either. Clogging could be an issue, that's a matter of sufficient filter area and testing under working conditions to see if it holds up. I am of course making the assumption that they did test their product. Cleaning seems fairly straight forward, using a bit of compressed air and solvent. In short, where's the problem?

    Please educate me, I'm always happy to learn. Telling me you'd rather wash out your toilet paper may have comical, but very little educational value...
