I got it from OEMheaters. However, the heater has worked intermittently, and the last two times I tried to use it, it didn’t work. Doesn’t look burned out, and it still has resistance, so I don’t know what is going on.

It was also $50...so...ouch.

I was just on their website and saw some band heaters, what do you think about putting it on my oil filter? I don't know what kind of filter your bike(s) have, but mine has a "regular" car type oil filter. Unlike my old bike which uses the cartridge style filter.

I have thought about wrapping a heater around exposed oil filters before(didn't know band heaters were a thing!), but the CBR's is a cartridge tucked away inside the engine. The VFR 400 has an exposed oil filter though. A removable band heater sounds like a great idea!
