 Hate to say  "me too" but I have had two of them do the same thing. Bought several at the Jax convention. Been using them up.

Subject: <VV> Spyder in the Keys, with Oil Filter Leak

The Spyder has been performing perfectly throughout the trip (for those uninitiated, I've been in the Keys for a week, down from St. Pete, FL). However, yesterday, the vendor-brand, reproduction oil filter started leaking. I did not bother tightening, as experience has shown their filter, once leaking, does not respond to lighting. Rather, I installed the NAPA filter I had brought along as a spare. Mr. tech guy, from the vendor, if you are listening, you guys need to get this issue solved. Most of your other "stuff" is top-notch (I should know; I've been buying from your boss since he worked off his kitchen table in the 1970s), However, there is a problem with your oil filters beginning to leak after some use. I would not normally mention this issue, online, but my private messages have, apparently, gone unheard. This is a public service message for you and your customers. Thank you.
