Question Is This HD#63813-90 Extra Long Oil Filter Best for My 09 xl1200 Sportster...???

I put this in another thread but got no answer so... These folks list it as an upgrade to the std. 63796-77A...

http://www.hmhd.com/webstore/viewite...pname=viewprod

I am thinking that this extra long 63813-90 filter may be better for my 09 xl1200 than the std. 63796-77A especially in the hotter summer months as it is,
free flowing and has more filter & cooling area and will let me use 3.0 qts. of oil... Having a larger sq. in filter paper surface should make it even more free flowing the std. 63796-77A shouldn't it...???
Am I all wet or does this seem a good go for to y'all...???
I mean I don't want to void my warranty either, know what I mean...???
Thanks and have a good one...Tater...

I use the longer filter, I live in a hot climate and it is better for cooling.(I also use an oil radiator too). I dont know about the better flow though.

Tater, more oil can only help the motor, so I say go for it.

I always use the long filter on the old Sportsters. More oil can't hurt a thing. It can only help. More filter area can't hurt either.

I might stand corrected but new models use a higher micron filter media with an anti flo back valve. None of which the filter you mention has. Later Sorgy

As I understand it is the same as our Std. filter 63796-77A @ 30 microns...
I don't believe those 5-10 micron rated filters apply to the Sportster oil Sys., which is high flow low pressure, but to the TC engines that are high pressure oil Sys., when compared to our Sportsters, could be my bad though...
Have a good one...Tater...

I'm not saying the EVO filter won't fit but the dealer service dept's use the TC filter on all late models except V-Rods now. K&N applications show the TC filter KN-171 for rubbermount XL's now too. Later Sorgy

Hi Tater. Your post asked Is This HD#63813-90 Extra Long Oil Filter Best for My 09 xl1200 Sportster . There has been a longtime upgrade for 63813-90. That's a 20 year ago designed filter. Since 1999 we have been using 63731-99A
SuperPremium5™ Oil Filter For Twin Cam 88« Harley-Davidson« is taking the lead in the industry with this breakthrough filter. Fits all '99-later Twin Cam and Evolution models and available as an upgrade for any motorcycle that requires Oil Filter P/N 63796-77A, 63805-80A, 63812-90 or 63813-90. It's your choice, your money, your bike. I personally still use an EVO filter on my BT1340 but on everything else I use the TC filter. Later Sorgy.
