Tranny cooler or Power steering return hose.

Fuel line works just fine, but may need to be replaced more often.

Remember all spin on filters, dirty oil goes in the outside of the filter and out the center to the tank.

DO NOT try to filter the oil supply to the pump!!!!!!!

There is little to no restriction from a filter, remember the return oil is hot and over 1/2 of the volume is air.

Most British bikes use a screen on the feed side to the pump as well as a screen on the sump suction to return to the tank and the "centrifuge" of the crankshaft to trap debris (1930s aviation technology). Appalling what junk you see getting picked up there. Dont understand why HD never filtered, unless they figured they could sell more replacement parts.
As RR says..DO NOT try to filter to the pump.....
