Bought a used Brutale, now I need parts!

I just bought an '06 910s and need to do some maintenance on it. Since there are no dealers in Wisconsin I'm out of luck there. I'm looking to find the following items:

1) oil filter
2) oil - manual says 10W-60 (never heard of it) or 20W-50. I've been using Mobil 1 20W-50 motorcycle oil in some of my other bikes. Anything wrong with using it?
3) Rear axle nut socket
4) Rear wheel stand

Any comments on acquiring these items? Thanks.

Pete

I've seen the oil filters on eBay but am leery of buying them since they don't seem to be OEM or another reputable name. I normally don't buy oil filters that are cheap (e.g. Fram) Any input?

If you are looking for OEM or any other recommended filter, why don't you just try the site sponsors
http://www.e-securedsite.com/gutsype...Agusta%20Store
or
http://www.designcorse.co.uk/Service_Items
there are others too

You can use Honda filters. Do a search for the model number, you'll find it here or pm the knurl. He knows.

Remember, you have a wet clutch and most cars don't. So there are additives to Motorcycle engine oil that may not be present it in regular synthetic engine oil. Agip makes the 20w-50, Motul makes the 10w-60 and a few others. Those are the two I use.

Current oil/filter thread here
http://mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=334&page=7
Many opinions but we all agree to change more often suggested by MV. Remember to (a) remove your headers to change the filter, and (b) save your filter clamps if you go non OEM.
For commonly-used parts and tools, eBay
Find yourself a service manual, btw

Lastly, welcome to the tightest bike community on the web

1998 VFR 800--gone
2012 Diavel--new
