    Hi Folks,

    The oil filter used on most modern Triumphs is approx £7.50 if you search Ebay using the bikes name. Then select "cheapest first"

    If you search using the part number. They are available for approx £6.

    Today I spotted a company on Ebay offering them for £4.99 with a best offer option.
    I offered £3.99 but also offered to purchase 5 filters. My offer was accepted! Only £19.95 for 5 filters inc free delivery! :grinning:

    The filters in question are HiFlo 204's. HiFlo is what 99% of non franchised dealers will use on any bike. They have been around for years & are as good as any other filter.

    The item number is 332624814353 just copy/paste it into the Ebay search box (sorry, can't post a link without showing all my info from the purchase)

    Obviously, the seller may not accept an offer of £1 less per filter if your only buying 1 or 2? Give them a try though. You never know?

    PS.... The 204 filter fitment is the same for many other bike manufacturers. Inc Honda for their Fireblade among others. If it's good enough for a Blade. It's definitely good enough for a Bonnie etc.

    Cool!
    However, I'm surprised that anyone was monitoring the Ebay account to accept your offer at this time of night?
    Maybe it's a fake/hacked Ebay account?

    I'll post if mine turn up Tez? Please do the same mate.

    will do mate, reckon its been set up to accept a certain amount per item as being like yourself I offered less again at 3.50 each .
    offer was followed by a counter offer of 8.50 (4.25 each) I responded with another counter offer of 3,99 per item and it accepted it within minutes.
    will keep you informed marra

    I'd say a human was doing that mate? Rather than the sellers auction settings.

    I'm sure it'll be fine. If not, Ebay/PayPal can earn their pound of flesh.

    If the first 5 turn up? I plan to order another 15. They fit my T100, the father-in-laws fireblade, his brothers bike & two mates bikes.
    As all 5 bikes normally get serviced in my garage. Even if I'm not actually wielding the spanners? It makes sense to have a few 204 filters in stock.
    I just need to get them to take their fecking waste oil away! :confused:

    Sorry to be a pessimist but having seen something similar on ebay with NGK spark plugs that were fakes, I just hope they are genuine filters at that price.....
