From what I can gather, 44440312B is the Ducati P/N for the 899 oil filter. The P/N for the drain plug washer is 85250541A.

****, while we are on the topic, the 899 P/N for the O-rings on the oil filter cover/retainer is 88650561A.

*The 899 parts manual for those interested is available from Ducati.com BTW*

...and are there any vendors where I can purchase all of this from at a competitive price without having to go to eBay?

Thanks!

I ended up ordering all 3 from ComMoto. I tried ProItalia and MotoWheels but they didn't have all 3 in their online stored.

So ComMoto, not impressing me one bit. If you need something in a reasonable amount of time, forget it. It ordered on a weekend and all business week after they did not touch it until at the end of Friday. By the time I receive it, almost 2 weeks, not cool.

Just to update, my order came today and they sent me oil filter 44440291C instead of the one I ordered. I did a Google and it turns out this is the new Ducati P/N for "all Panigale" oil filter. So I guess the 1199 and the 899 filters have been both replaced with this P/N. Just and FYI.

What oil are you going with?

Redline, it's all I use in my vehicles and is made in the USA a couple hours from me. I always get immediate responses when I contact them too. I did some research on Redline compared to Motul 300V and came to the conclusion Redline was marginally better so no reason to change from what I've always used.

Finally got around to doing the oil change, have about 4,168 or something on it. There was a tiny bit of metal on the tip of the drain plug, no biggie. Everything went great but ****, the oil just kept on coming lol.

I got the engine hot, pulled the drain plug, then when it was barely a drip, I tapped the starter a few times and it started streaming out again. I was able to do this about 3 times before finally no more oil was left in the oil pump.

Result, **** thing took just a bit more than 3.5 quarts when all said and done! Doing the filter was a piece of cake. I used a new crush washer on the drain plug but didn't bother replacing the o-rings on the oil filter cover, they seemed totally fine. Hopefully I didn't over tighten the drain plug, seems really easy to do.

I took the opportunity to replace a plastic washer on one of the fairing bolts that has been missing since new so that's good. But then of course something had to go wrong. The bottom rear left side fairing bolt only went in about 2/3 then wouldn't go any further, and it was not caught on anything. I took it out and tried like 3 times, no dice. Think I need to order a new metal clip for it, had it off 4 times now, weird. Bolt came out just fine.

After running the bike a couple times I ended up filling it until it was just below the middle of the sight glass. I feel good that I finally have Redline in it now, of course the Motul 300V that came out still looked great.

I'll be letting the dealer do the next oil change at 7,500 although I'll provide the oil. I want the piece of mind they check everything out including my tiny oil leak. I think there is a software update too since I bought in January and I also heard there is an official fix for the emissions canister/hot start issue.

theres an unofficial fix for the canister too, remove it :)
Which I'll be happy to do when my 2yr warranty is up on 1-18-2016, but until then it's Ducati's problem to fix correctly. ****, I might even buy an extended before the factory one is up so who knows, either way, I'm not about to take the fall for a failure should they decide to come back and blame me for voiding the emissions systems warranty if something emissions related fails. It's all about covering my ass :D

the charcoal canister isnt for exhaust emissions its for evaporated fuel from the tank, you cant really harm the emissions equipment by removing it

I know what it's for lol. My point is dicking with it could void your emissions systems warranty.

I'm not sure where you live, but in the U.S. the canister IS considered part of the "emissions" system by law, not necessarily by purpose.

Yeah it sucks that you live in CA. Everywhere else in the U.S. doesn't require it. ****, the dealerships yank them off to fix it.

Does anyone have the dimensions of the crush washer? I need to try to find one locally. Have a track day this weekend and closest dealer is 400 miles away.
