    Nice to see the 11 year old post finally sorted.

     Ha Ha i did note that at the start but maybe we need to join the non Harley tourer riders as they would have been able to shed some light on this before 11yrs........LOL

    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" !

    Love your measuring stick T4.

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

    "Time and money"


    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.
