I say no.

Use the purolator pure one. PL14610

Filters down to 10 microns.

The one you are looking at will only do down to 35.

Do a search on oil filters (on this site) and you will find a like to a study that did a comparison of a bunch of different filters (including the one you are looking at) and they rated the pure one the best.

$6 PureOne and you put say 30,000 miles on your bike. Change the oil every 2500 miles = 12 oil changes for the life of your bike. Now, 6 x 12 = $72

$107.10 for the one you linked, you would finally break even after 50,000 miles provided your bike lasts that long on that oil filter with it only filtering to 35 microns as lionheart says.

I have heard that the scotts filter is not a bad product but how can you wash out that filter? You can't really get to the inside to blow the trapped material back out and you can't push it thru the filter as its a filter. So how can you get the contamination out of the filter when changing the oil?

Buy a throw away filter and be happy.

waste of money. Like was said before, go with the Purolator Pure-One PL14610 or 14612. The 10 has greater volume but it may lower your oil pressure as well.

HiFlo filters are only 6-7 bux a piece, they are up to manufactures specs so its jsut cheap insurance to switch the filter whne you change the oil.

I was told at the dealer that fram filters are know to fail and blow off the bike due to the high oil preasure when you really get on it. Walmart is great for buying camping supplies but I'll stick to the dealer for bike stuff.

...don't know about all that but Fram filters are pieces of crap compared to the purolator.
