Do the new UCE bikes come with the improved oil filter device, the same one advertised in the Nfield catalog?

Your bike should come with one.

Only the oil filter cap is improved.  Everything else is the same.  Here is the link to its picture -

Matt, my dealer, sez that when I bring the bike (G-5 Dlx) in for its 500 mile checkover and oil change, he's going to replace the old hellacious cover with the new easy one if necessary (i.e., it hasn't a new one on already as might seem to be the case from the other post noted above).  And I get to watch what happens so I'll know when I'm taking care of things in my own garage after that. :)

Do not forget that a quantity of oil  rest in the primary crankcase.
