Last year the Harley-Davidson Milwaukee-Eight was born and with the new V-twin motor came the inevitable market for parts to put on it. Both the Motor Company and the aftermarket have kept a steady stream of new P&A for the motor so that its owners can get the custom fix their addiction demands. We here at Hot Bike like to know what's new just as much as the rest of biker world. When Harley-Davidson hips us to its latest and greatest parts for its latest and greatest Big Twin motor, we're happy to share them with you.
Earlier this week, the company introduced two new Milwaukee-Eight products in the oil department: one for maintenance, one for guarding your oil cooler from road debris. Needless to say (but I'm going to anyway) you can pick both of them up online or from your local Harley-Davidson dealership.
The new Oil Catcher Drain Funnel (P/N 62700199, $22.95) was made specifically for servicing the new Harley-Davidson Milwaukee-Eight engine. Harley-Davidson says it fits securely around the oil filter mounting bracket while providing access to spin the filter off its mount. Oil is captured in the funnel and drains through a tube to a catch basin or bottle. The funnel’s smooth orange surface is easy to wipe clean after use.
The new Oil Cooler Cover (P/N 25700633 Chrome, P/N 25700634 Black; $149.95) is meant to pull double duty as both protection and style enhancer. This cover is shaped to hug the contours of the oil cooler body and does not interfere with the engine guard or the voltage regulator. The forward-facing mesh screen adds a custom touch and protects the oil cooler fins from road debris without disturbing the airflow across the surface. Unfortunately, the cover doesn't fit models with fairing lowers, or with the accessory Fan-Assisted Oil Cooler (P/N 62700204). You'll want to see an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer for fitment details.
