Earl, black gold, Texas tea, Memphis mud, bubbling crude… These are names for the product that allows all of our machines to operate without failure. That product of course is oil. We all know that changing oil sucks, and changing it can get prolonged due to a plethora of reasons. The guys at K&P have come up with a filter system that is reusable, cleanable, aesthetically pleasing, and most of all works with H-D Evo and Twin Cam motors. The kit comes complete with filter, housing, an extra O-ring, and a convenient oil filter wrench adapter.
The K&P oil filter is about 25-percent smaller than a stock OEM filter and fits easily on those bikes with hard-to-reach filters that are covered or surrounded by fairing components or chin spoiler or deflector device. The filter housing and filter element end caps are carved out of a solid chunk of 6061-T6 billet aluminum, which not only looks great but aids in dissipating heat and reducing weight. The filter element is made from medical-grade, type 304 stainless-steel micronic filter cloth to provide unmatched protection against oil contamination and resultant engine damage. A super-strength neodymium rare Earth magnet is installed in the top of the filter element used in the spin-on models, which provides magnetic pre-filtering of the oil. The adhesive used in the filter assembly process is good to 600 degrees Fahrenheit, far above normal operating temperature of 180 to 300 degrees.
