  • Oil Filter Cross Reference Information

    I can't take credit, nor have I validated or recommend any of the following information.

    After seeing that its almost $ 10 dollars for a HD oil filter ( non-chrome ) at the dealership, I thought I would look and see if automobile to motorcycle oil filter cross-reference information was available. Here is the source of the information:

    http://www.calsci.com/motorcycleinfo/FilterXRef.html

    I converted the information to PDF if anyone is interested in downloading and or printing out a copy.

        Thanks DDB,
        Hard to imagine that you could get a filter fer your Harley at Wally World? Better check to make sure it is made in the good ol' USA first!

          ********************* WARNING *******************************

          This information should be verified before you use any filter on your bike.



          BullHurley and I went to the auto parts store to look at some of the filters that supposed to work with his bike.

          Most of the filters on the " Preferred list " actually cost more than the Harley filter from the dealership. And the flow back holes were smaller.........

          If you decide to use one of these filters you need to make sure you look at the filter compared to a Harley filter and make your own decision.

          I for one will keep using HD filters.

          Strat PM'd me a link that everyone needs to see in addition to this. ( thanks buddy )

                    A couple years ago, working part time back at an local auto parts store did some digging. Had access to a couple name brands and K&N and such. Figured while I could get parts at cost plus 10% I'd stock up on filters. Much to my surprise, Harley has sumpin' priced (and quality) done right. Lucky to have a local indy parts store that carries Harley and K&N in both black and chrome.

                      Some thing else that comes to mind. I spent the time to use many x-references for oil filters and filters by dimension while I was there. You would be surprised how many filters appear to fit many different applications.(by thread, height, seal placement)

                      For the little difference in price I suggest use what is listed and/or recommended............................is saving two bucks an oil change worth any engine you own?


                      just my 2 pennies worth.

                          I agree.... was just curious on if there was a cross reference on the filters. Seems that HD filters are actually priced pretty after while.

                            Honestly, I've never purchased an HD filter. I use a lifetime filter with the stainless mesh screen.....And I've had "no" issues with it....
                            I used to run them on my yamaha, and my suzuki. And those bikes ran well on them also.....g

                              So it sounds like the OEM filter faired pretty well, I dont base my decision on oil and filters based on price though.
