Sl*bside Mike said: aluminum oil tank with the built in oil filter? Are the filters easy to come by? Are the filters effective in cleaning the oil? Thanks for any input. Mike
Gr*ybeard Bob said: Just bought a bike this spring that has one, but its steel not aluminum. It uses a standard 4 speed oil filter, lots of them out there. I guess any filtration is better than none. JMHO, YMMV, etc.
*nglish cw said: Hi Mike , my thinking is , 1 . there must be a little less oil in the tank that is fitted with a filter , 2. the filter in the side of a tank will lose less heat than one out in the breeze . But they are a nice tidy way to go .

l*pe said: its a good idea in concept, i think, looks sorta smart, or catchy, But Mike, for a dude like u that dos actually ride, I personally, ah screw that, my op to u is. do not fool with it Mike. on a mech level. for me the list is long, Many have already been said by the above family. so no book by paul today. i vote no okay paul:D:D:D

l*pe said: Okay Paul, I'm intrigued, let's have the full list.-----------Product grin :p we go from there paul. OR if u run 1, and u like it, thats a Good thing:D:D
sh*vel it said: The only downfall I heard to having the filter in the bag is messy oil change; I plan on running a horseshoe with filter and am ok with a little mess. You can always remote your filter which a nice way of going....
Ch*pperkev said: -----------Product grin :p we go from there paul. OR if u run 1, and u like it, thats a Good thing:D:D Haha, I do run one, but I made it myself, it's not something I sell though. I'm serious, I'd like to hear all the negatives, I know oil is a favourite subject of yours, so your opinion will be valued.:)
Sl*bside Mike said: Thanks for the info guys. I do like the idea of clearing some of the clutter associated with a remote filter, which I ran on my '66. I don't mind a little mess when changing oil, hell I usually make a large mess! EPA would love me. I am not concerned so much with cooling as it is mainly an air-cooled engine. I live in the steamy South and have been stuck in traffic in 95*+ temps and the oil didn't go over 200. My gage is accurate, temperature measurement is part of my livelihood. I don't think much capacity is lost because the filter is full of oil and the one I was looking at was 4 qt. Paul, I would like to hear your reasons also. Mike
79 sh*vit said: I've got a Paugho horseshoe with filter on the left,it can be a bit messier but I use a plastic license plate (from like a dealer) that I cut an formed to fit an catch any oil. Then just a shot of brk clean to get the filter area clean,then just wipe an your done. As far as filters,you can get just about whatever micron size media you want but S&S strongly advises not to use a filter with a check valve or too small a micron filter as our shovels don't have enough return pres an may cause sumping/starvation ect. The only (an it's a big'un) bitch I have is that when I received the tank it had so much chrome flashing + rust/crap from the plating process that it took me near 3-4 days of shaking/cleaning an using an old clutch cable to rotor rooter out the restricted feed+vent lines that I will never buy another paugho made part again! What a nightmare! If I had installed it without close inspection it would have destroyed my new eng! Just my experience. Oh,as for filters,I've been going to buy one of those stainless steel one that are supposed to do a hell of a job and are cleanable for life! Not supposed to have any restriction issues an filter down quite small. Doug T.

T*nyVato said: The only negative issue I've encountered with this style Oil Tank is that my Jockey Shifter knob will hit the filter. Fix was simple... add heat and bend. Otherwise no issues.
l*pe said: Guys at all, honest. i violated one of my own rules within my post here. i am checking some vendor stuff, its possible an apology or a retraction on some points may be in order, and if so, U know i will. that is very important too me, soon okay i will explain. and KEVIN, YOU DAWG GRIN, u know i Know YOU grin. a tank Built by YOU sorta dont count smile,:p:p but i promised, will go There also grin later me
78sh*vel said: +1 on what 79 shovit said. The Paughco tank I got needed some serious thread chasing where the fittings screw in and you could actually see little metal chips inside the tank. Not that I'd ever put one into service without cleaning it, but still not exactly expected ... I've heard others say that having a battery surrounded by oil at around 200 degrees shortens the life of the battery. I never had a problem, but didn't really get enough runtime on the setup to tell if it would be an issue.
