Those ST (WalMart) filters are made by Champ. And while the new ones are made in Mexico, it's the same company, just moved production to cheaper labor in Mexico. (Way to go NAFTA.)
 
But I'm a fan of Purolator. Better filter media if you buy the PURE ONE filters. But the Champ labs filters are way better than Fram.
 
Wix is a good choice as well. (And NAPA Gold are wix filters.)
 
IIRC, the Mobile1, K&N and many others are made by Champ labs. Just branded with the various names. (Some AC Delco's are that way too.)

I'll ad a caveat here. Might want to stay away from Wix. I had a good friend fit one to his Yamaha about 4 months ago and after about 800 miles something inside failed and caused a loss of oil flow. I was with him on that ride. The bike was taken to the Yamaha dealer where they did pressure tests and finally traced it to the filter. They installed the stock Yamaha filter and no more issues.

I use the K&N kn-204 . Link here
 
Note the nut head on the end. Makes removing a snap, just remember not to use it to install/tighten or you will strip the threads.

Also, I just changed title of the thread so that people can find this helpful thread when searching on Google.

I wanna offer a word of caution... Not all filter brands and off brands are created equal in terms of operating specs like oil pressure needed to push oil thru filter media...automotive filters might have a different operating specs then a motorcycle spec filter even if it's the same sized filter as OEM...

...very true, and I don't quite get the need to go cheap on filters. True that Yamaha might be ripping us off some (should cost half of what it costs at the dealer), but in the grand scheme of things there are no savings to be had doing this unless you run a fleet of vehicles putting in 10s of thousands of kilometres (... or miles :P ) each year. This race to the bottom makes little sense to me. Finding a true spec equivalent at a good price is really the idea here. Just because it spins on and "fits"... nah.
And, I have never seen any testing that proves one filter better than another based on actual use in real vehicles.  Heck, Yamaha says we can use one filter for two oil changes, while most users change the filter each time.  Using the filter that just fits and changing at every oil change may be better than using OEM filter and changing every other oil change.  If you live in Europe, the spec is change oil every 6,000 miles vs. US at 4,000 miles.  Makes you wonder if that 4K spec. is coming out of Cypress to get the US dealers more business.  Generally everyone should change oil once a year, just to get the contaminates out, whether you ride 2K or 12K, if you only do it once a year, you should always change the filter, no matter what the manual says. 
Best advise:  Ride your bike more and use it up, so when it is time to get another, you have gotten your moneys worth out of it.  You will find that it didn't make any difference how often you changed the filter, because with the design of the engines and the oil we use today you will not wear them out.

I use the K&N. The last change I did, the head of it actually twisted on me. Not sure if the filter tightened itself down or what because I definitely didn't put it on that tight. Anywho, I used a standard filter wrench to remove it. Hopefully it doesn't happen again.

A) The torque value from Yamaha is a little over the top for the oil filter (base starts making contact at just about 3/4 turn, then just snug it up a tad), and B) If you tighten when cold and try to remove when hot... it might feel tighter than expected. 
As a general note, I found that on filters with rounded, soft gaskets the base (rim) needs to make contact with the flange on the motor to stay snug. On filters with more rigid, flat gaskets, the rim never makes contact.

Good info to know, thank you.

It's not so much that the Yamaha filter is expensive, but that it's a vastly inferior filter:

The Purolator is a better quality filter; the fact that it's also less than half the price is just icing on the cake.

Well, I/we have a good reason for running an OEM filter & Yamalube oil as well. A 20 year, 100,000 mile warranty on the motor if I use their products. :-) Have to run their oil, filter & drain plug gasket for the warranty. And it's transferrable. How many knew of this and took advantage? Dealer didn't even know about it!http://www.yamalubeadvantage.com/
