I own a 2003 Ultra Classic with the Premium Oil Cooler added, I also have engine work as follows: 95ci, S&S G570 cams, Baker 6 speed, Power Commander, SuperSucker air intake manifold and Vance & Hines TruDuals .... My problem is changing my oil specifically the oil filter. My mechanic tells me I need either an older Sportster EVO oil filter or K&N KN-170-C filter which allows for a greater flow of oil and boosts my oil pressure, I am also running NON-synthetic oil. In order to remove the oil filter the crankcase sensor needs to be removed which is simply a pain.

Are there any recommendations pro-or-con for going back to the standard H-D oil filter 63798-99A and any idea why I have to remove the crankcase sensor before I can get the oil filter removed?

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Brett W. Sabio

I assume you mean the crankshaft sensor, as I don't know of a crankcase sensor. But even at that, I can't see why, unless the oil cooler adapter makes the sensor in the way. As long as the threads for the filter, and the length are right, the stock filter should work. My suggestion would be to have your mechanic explain why you need to do the things you've listed. He must have reasons,(right or wrong) for what he's telling you. As to oil flow, don't think there's any real difference between the filters you've listed.

What are you doing with the filter that makes you remove the sensor???????????????????? That's just nuts.

Use the MoCo filter and get yourself the CORRECT oil filter wrench .

The use of synthetic oil will lower oil temps for you.

If you want higher oil pressure, use anyone of the relief valve springs on the market to boost oil pressure .

A MoCo Service Manual and the Parts Book would be of great use to you . :thumbsup
