i went today and ordered almost everything in the new ktm catalog for my 505sx. i also needed oil and oil filter. i bought the motorex 10w50 full synthetic. as for the filter, they are expected 12-1-08. WTF!! the filter is a first one they make of that size. it is not shared. so i have to reuse my oil filter and just change the oil. just a heads up to you guys.

I just ran into the same issue earlier this week. Picked up my SX last Friday and was reading through the manual when I noticed the 3 hour preliminary oil change. Two places I called said they were backordered until 12/1 but my dealer was able to order them for me from KTM's parts distributo in Ohio or something like that - should be this coming week.

But yes, the 450/505SX oil filter is specific to that quad so you cannot use the one from the 450SX-F dirt bike or XC version.

Are you guys still having issues finding the filters?

I just ordered 10 of them and they are not backordered or anything.

I was supposed to get them from my dealer last week but didn't swing by to pick them up. I ordered four and they did not seem to have a problem. My biggest issue is lead time - it takes 5-7 business days to get parts from KTM once the order is submitted :(

Picked up my 505SX the last week of August and had the same problem. My local shop had to also contact KTM East (Ohio) and order them... took almost 3 weeks to get em.
