We'll do that. We have had hundreds of failed ideas...most of them do not get as far as the all metal floorboards, in retrospect we should have realized they would not have good traction while wet.

Most get shot down before we even do a working prototype.

A few things that come to mind right off are:

We made over 100 variations of the TTI's that did not work as well as we wanted before finally getting the results we wanted with the current design.

We also tested some variations of an "internal velocity stack" that could be used with most any air cleaner.



It certainly seems like it would work, but all our dyno tests and butt dyno testing, yielded no improvement. All those prototype got tossed.

Oil Filter Relocation for Two Wheel Touring Models and Harley Trikes

What’s in the kit and how’s it made?

Here’s our Oil Filter Relo Kit for 2 Wheel Touring Models and Trikes-



The filter mount and filter adapter are made from cast aluminum with brass fittings. We use the brass fittings because these give the best seal.

The magic in our kit are the Patent Pending brackets. There were many different prototypes and designs before finding the perfect design to withstand the wind and vibrations and allowing the oil filter to be tucked in and close to the frame so that there are no issues with scraping and road debris, all while having a Lifetime Warranty.

The brackets are made from American Cold Rolled Steel.




These small pieces of metal are used as a gusset, welded onto our brackets for added strength.



Gusset welded in place. This bracket mounts to the frame.



This bracket is what the oil filter mounts to.



The brackets are now ready for powder coating.


The hose that is supplied with our kit is very high quality; the same as Harley or Jagg hoses.



We include stainless steel hardware in our kits along with acorn nuts for a more finished look. Also, we include, not readily available, black hose clamps.







Why did we build The Clean-n-Cool Remote Oil Filter Set-up?

Two Reasons:

1. We have tried dozens of ways to remove the oil filter without making a mess. Some work better than others, but none work well.

2. Twin Cams run too hot for their own good. A cooler engine runs stronger and lasts longer.

For full details on testing and results, see post above.
