evo motor-oil filter

Does an Evo motor take the same oil filter as a v-twin motor and also how many quarts of oil? It is an 80 cu.in. motor. I am new to the evo motor.Are they a good dependable motor?Also do they sell high performance kits for them? Heads,cam,pistons etc. Thank you much

EVO is a V-Twin but not a Twin Cam.
3 quarts in the engine.
20-24 oz in the tranny
32-34 oz in the primary (be careful and don't over-tighten the tapered plug)

Same kind of filter...just order by year and model. ie; My 1995 Wideglide uses the long one.

Red face Read carefully

When selecting your filter. DO NOT use a TC filter. It will cause the sump to hold more oil than the pump can scavenge. Don`t ask how I learned.

Performance Parts

I like the S&S kits for engineered hop up performance with good reliability.

There new bolt in cam works good too.

An easy up grade is an ignition module, some just plug right in and fit where the old one was. You don't even have to mess with your timing!
They use a LED for a timing aid so you can use it when you change your cam.

Best advice for you would be to order the Harley service manual and parts book. The parts book is great for exploded views. There worth the dough.

EVO's in my opinion

Roadchaser, I been around HD since I was knee high to a grasshopper, still now at 55 yrs old I have a love/hate thing going on.
The EVO has followed the pattern of all HD since 1903.
They put out a product it has problems they iron out the problems then move on to another engine design.
The EVO came out and for the most part was trouble free other than the sealing system between the case and the barrels... ie leaks.
HD engine cases from 86 thru to 93 suffered from bad castings and poor, pourous cases in fact they were down right crap. after 93 -94 they resolved their case problems. I am sure they had to because they were working on the twinkie engine. Any EVO manufactured between 93 and 99 should be free of casting problems. Enjoy the engine it is a great engine and the aftermarket will be build parts for years to come.

I thought the pourous case issue was between 89 and 90. Late 92 is when they switched to the INA inner cam bearing.
