Just interested in why you don't want to use OEM Ducati Parts? If it's purely based on price then you run the risk of getting a sub-optimum part which is false economy if/when it goes wrong!

For example, I like using the K&N Oil Filter. It's double the price of an OEM Ducati one (approx 10 vs 5) but they are a better quality filter (open them up if you don't believe it!!) and they have the added benefit of having a nut on the end which more than justifies the extra cost when it comes to getting the filter off - just use a socket drive rather than sticking a screwdriver through it and making a mess of everything!!

Oil Filter
You can buy pattern filters that fit, the DOCGB has a list here: http://www.docgb.org/interlist.html and you can pickup 2CV filters for a couple of quid.

Timing Belts
I don't think there's any equivalent that I know of.

Air Filter
This is the cylindrical one? MotoRapido will sell you oem for under 20. The Pipercross "performance" filter is under 40 but as it is reuseable you would only need to clean it twice to make it cheaper than replacing OEM.

Fuel Filter
Same as 916, should be under 20 as oem. Equivalent is a Mahle "KL 24/1" which retails at 18.99 each. Not aware of any cheaper ones.

Spark Plugs
These are DCPR8E, or any equvalent, as per the owner's manual. You can pick these up for as little as 2.50 each off ebay and are used in lots of Fiats and others. A good saving here for the same item as I think they're about 6 from Ducati in a nice Ducati box!

Crikey are they still using the old metal one I would have thought they would have moved to the plastic ones by now

My Hyper has the later KL97 plastic one so I expect that they have migrated but the part number quoted was for the older (and larger) metal one.
