Another thing you have to watch for is how many microns the oil filter flows. This is why a lot of guys, in the independent bike shops, do not recommend using car oil filters on Harleys anymore. The newer car filters flow a smaller size micron and this causes the oil to back up in the filter (i.e..restrict) on a Harley. And yes, I've seen blue AC delco filters on big twins and Sportsters. I know, too, that Drag Spec. sells a 12 micron and a 10 Micron filter that will fit a Sportster. The 12 micron is standard, I think the 10 micron is more for a V-Rod. Car filters are running about 16-22 microns now with 0W20 oil.
WARNING: things posted in this post may be confusing and downright outlandish, but there is no fear of epileptic fits. Proceed with caution, to the next post.

Is that check ball made of plastic or composite? It doesn't look like metal from your picture.
