oil filter question can i use an automotive filter on a 97 883 hugger? or do i have to use an H-D filter? i am told that only H-D filteris to be used on my tc88 and i do. so any info will be appreciated.
The question should be is it worth saving a few bucks on a cheap filter that might work, and chance trashing my motor. The reason HD wants you to use there filter on a TC88 is . The evo filter filtered to 15 micron, and the TC filters to 5 micron. How good is your cheaper filter.
By the way you can use a TC filter on a evo too, at least a bagger.
The reason I bring this up is we're going through the same thing on fuel filters at work. One guy is trashing injecters in his truck at about 60000 miles, and useing offbreed filters. They should go over 100,000 miles easy. But he's saveing a buck or two on his filters.
