    For those thinking of getting the oil scavenger kits, and are not that savvy or knowledgeable on year or model  , just be aware there are a number of different types for different years and models..... On the Rouge Chopper website there is a drop down menu that helps sorting that out, plus videos etc .....

    On the earlier models , it seems a clean and painless procedure to get the last of the contaminated oil out ...... The later (touring) models you have to remove the pipe fitting plug, (the one next to the oil drain plug,, the one that  is recommended not to remove), to use the scavenger kit ..... Some have second thoughts on removing that pipe type plug as there are instances when removing  that  plug,  the  case can be damaged or crack ..... 

    To scavenge or not to scavenge the last of the contaminated oil out ,,, your call ,,, just be aware of the above .......


     tq to the right specs and its not a problem...done mine heaps on my rushmore havent had a problem...

    Looked into this YONKS ago !

    I service all my own Harleys for 22 years now , and for many many mates.

    I also service Harleys for guys who are not keen to do their own AND I show them how to do it.

    Decided years ago not worth it for me to "scavenge' , too many model options and "too hard basket"

    Add to that the that old heat hardened hard plastic unions and junctions on Softails

    My take on it ? Fine if it works for you , but no HD dealer in the world does it as a matter of course.

    I recommend 4,000 K's oil change intervals and that is all you'll need. Twice what HD say.

    Yes and I know the thread "is dead as a dead Dingo's donger" !

     Thanx. I find fingers great for sensitive jobs, especially when lubricated . . .

    "Time and money"

    EXACTLY !

    If they were of the opinion even for a minute it was an earner for their workshops it would be done 100% of the time.

    Too fiddly/ fartaroundy / griefsome for them ( and me !). They DO NOT want to break nuthin' which is why !

    Just do oil and filter changes every 4000 K's and she'll be apples mate

    Dino every 4000 and a scavange is my routine and no other fuckers opinion will change my ways unless it's based on better science, that's on my own bike, if I had a business I would offer it, at a price.
