Everything you do carries an opportunity cost: you can’t do something else instead. You’ve got to ask yourself how does washing an oil filter rank in your list of things.

Yeah, but if you check their website, you'll see they have an accessory bypass valve that allows the rider to dispense "burnout oil" to the rear wheel by merely pulling a lever on the handlebar! This could be just what you've been looking for...

Exactly... that's why I don't use an oil filter at all. Who wants a filter to change anyway?

In what way is a washable oil filter new???. manufacturers went to disposable spin on's because they got tired of people complaining of having to wash out their oil filter elements in the 60's.

My 1980 FLH and my 1978 XLH both had super tight woven mesh oil filters. I though it was pretty cool, just swish them around in gas and let them dry every 1000 miles or so and off you go. It was attached to the bottom of the oil tank cap...lift it out, drain the oil tank, swish the filter around let it dry while you refill the oil bag and there you are, 10 minute oil change.

You must be one of those techno-phobes. I'll bet you don't worship BMWs either. Heretic!

There is always something nice about the ease of dry sump oil changes. No futzing around banging your knuckles and trying to loosen the freaking drain nut down there amongst all that exhaust plumbing. Especially after warming the engine like you are supposed to.

You can't use this on an HD anyhow. You need at least 5000 micron mesh or the loose chunks of piston will just plug it up .
