not require oiling.
In addition, the breather system has
been redesigned to route breather gases directly into
the inlet of the carburetor to minimize excess oil in the
air cleaner assembly. Kit comes complete with all necessary
components and assembly instructions required.
For race application only.

air cleaner cover. Harley-Davidson®

requires separate purchase of
adapter kit P/N 29848-04. $109.95
29066-03 Fits ’88-’03 XL models. $109.95
Thanks for the help Big-Ed. See the bolded information above......found that information on this sites archives. Thats why I was confused. If that is indeed what I have (which it sounds like what I have exactly, but maybe not) then the filter would not require oiling. Would it still be OK to oil it? I am aware that the oil is what traps the grime/dirt/bugs from entering the engine (I run a K&N on my Tahoe), but did not want to oil it if it is supposed to be run dry.

The reason I think you are being confused is that the newer SE kits (from about 03-04 then 04-up) didnt use a K&N filter, they use a high flow what looks like white paper type cleanable element (that has the warning not to oil it stamped into it)

The kit you have fitted on you 1200s is an 90's era SE kit & that is when K&N supplied the filters to HD..

10-4 thanks again. That makes sense....but just wanted to be 100% sure before I go and oil it. Looks like the previous owner definitely paid the tax on it before I got it. Saves me some cash for sure.
