I just put an oil pressure gauge on my '98 Road King. The bike has 11,400 miles on it. The pressure gauge registers about 11lbs at a hot idle and jumps to 20 lbs. with a quick throttle twist.
This seems low to me. The bike runs great.
The shop manual for my dyna wg. states to use nothing short of a 10 micron oil filter. That said,why is the dealer pushing the 5-micron filters (premium) on us @$14.00 apiece...WOW!
Is that 10-micron filter twice as good and where can i find those?...thx's

so, I had a valve job put on my heads and went to a bigger cam, mind you, the motor already had 3k miles or so on the cylinder and pistons, I have the cylinders nikasil'd. well I found out the hard way that the plated cylinder isnt compatible with every type of oil, nikasil by make up is much...
I’m putting a new starter clutch and solenoid in my 2000 Road King. I have an unopened quart of HD 20w50 that I wanted to use in primary instead of my usual synthetic Mobil 1. Is this ok to use conventional oil? Is 1 quart the recommended amount to use? Thank you!
