The stock oil filters are:
Black: # 63805-80A
Chrome: # 63796-77A
Just look at the website of any dealer that allows you access to the parts database. In the UK I use Chester H-D and Jersey H-D.

Thanks. Since I couldn't find any spec on the micron for the 63805-80A, I went to a site which cross-references it to many other brands. It matches NAPA Gold 1215 (WIX 51215) which is the 21 micron oil filter. So this particular filter can't be the one on the Harley Store website which is 5 microns.
https://www.oilfilter-crossreference...DSON/63805-80A
Still, this is good info for everyone whether they like the 5 or the 21 micron oil filter. A Harley oil filter is available in both micron spec's, using this info.

No, it isn't. The 5 micron ones are:
Black: # 63731-99A
Chrome: # 63798-99A
They're in the P&A catalogue (the printed catalogue).

Thanks! I've added all of this to my personal files for future reference.

Here is some interesting info I found on oil filters for the Sportster Evo engine:

Should I run a 10 micron or a 30 micron oil filter?
By S&S Cycle

A micron rating is given to show the efficiency of the oil filter (one micron is a millionth of a meter). This leads consumers to believe that the 10 micron filter must be better for their bike. Here is where it can get confusing. Though the 10 micron filter may have a higher filtration rating it does not allow the oil to return to the tank as fast.

With this in mind, the 10 micron filter was developed for use with the Twin Cam style engine, which has a different oiling system that allows oil to be forced through a more restrictive oil filter. The reason for the tighter filtration was explained by the manufacture as necessary to assure all of the smaller passages in the Twin Cam style engine would stay clear of debris.

If you run the 10 micron filter with an Evolution style engine, it will not be able to return oil through the filter fast enough causing the oil to back up into the lower end, robbing power and/or causing oil to puke out of the lower end. The reason for this unpleasant phenomenon is the fact that the late-style filters are more restrictive to oil flow than the correct early-style filter. The return side of the oil pump in an Evolution engine doesn’t make a lot of pressure, and if it can’t push the oil through the filter fast enough, oil scavenged from the crankcase will build up in the cam chest. That oil has to go somewhere, and eventually it’s going to get blown out of the crankcase breather, which is routed to your air cleaner. That’s when it can turn ugly. So use the right oil filter and life will be good!

The 30 micron filter is designed to work best for your Evolution style engine, the filtration is still excellent and it will not cause oiling issues.

When it comes to filtering oil, application is very important. There have been a lot of changes and updates in the market with too many filter brands claiming a better filtration. Don’t be fooled into using a filter that might not be the best for your bike.

Some Oil Filters for Sportster

H-D 63731-99A (black) – 5 micron
H-D 63798-99A (chrome) – 21 micron

H-D 63805-80A (black) – 21 micron
H-D 63796-771 (chrome) – 21 micron

Wix 51215 (black) – 21 micron
Wix 51225 (chrome) – 21 micron

NAPA Gold 1215 (black) – 21 micron
NAPA Gold 1225 (chrome) – 21 micron

K&P, re-usable... 35 microns. and forget about it.

Part #S4 (or S44, if you want it with larger oil & cooling capacity).

It's my understanding that the oil is not filtered on the return from the crankcase. So, how can it back up in the sum?

It is filtered just after the feed gerotor pumps it from the oil tank, then goes to the oil galleys, eventually ending up in the sump. Then the return gerotor simply pumps sump oil (and air) back to the tank.

If it backs up at all, it should be at the tank/feed gerotor side, don't you think?

I use a 21 micron on my 1991, usually a WIX 51215.

John
