FYI... Per a bulletin that went out to US Honda dealers today, oil filters for the CBR are in very limited supply and dealers can only order one filter per day.

When i had mine in for the 600 mile service, they didn't have the filter. They said that when it finally came in they would call me and change my oil again, and replace the filter... I'm thinking you're right madd-trapper.

It was the same in Thailand.

They didn't come in for months until months after release.

Luckily the KAWASAKI N250R filter is identical and people were able to use them. I bought one and the Honda dealer put it in.

Can get more info if people are interested.

Gee do you think maybe it has anything to do with the earthquakes/tsunami that have crippled the countries manufacturing and infrastructure?
Man, no kidding. Kind of lame when everyone is complaining about waiting on things from Japan when they just had one of the worst natural disasters in recorded history. Chill out. Your motorcycle can wait. :)

Is the oil filter being made in japan even?

The bike comes out of thailand japan earthquakes wouldnt effect the shipping and building of it.

Well thats assuming is all made in thailiand and not relying on parts ex japan.

They're hard to find. Local dealer has them on back order. I'm putting in 900+ miles this weekend. No filters so I'll just change the oil.

I stopped by the shop today and asked about oil filters...

He said, "I have already ordered them but they are on backorder... Let me check if they have an eta... ah... How many miles you got?"

I said, "Just under 500, wanted to make sure you had em before 1st service..."

He said, "Yeah... ah... I will have one by September..."

According to Honda, due to an unforeseen event, they were unable to get them out in a timely fashion. The dealers can order one a day. If they order 10 a day they will still only get one per day once off of backorder.
