My older carb'd Ducati OEM fuel filter is getting hard to find and not cheap. Turns out that its really just a Denso filter also used on older Mitsubishi 4 cylinder cars (aka Dodge Colt in the US). My local NAPA store had one on the shelf for just a few bucks .... a real Made in Japan OEM part, not even a store-brand clone.
