    Allright peeps...
    I am looking to get a new reusable oil filter for my 04 Chopper S&S 107.

    Options are K&P (S4) or Sifton or PC Racing (PCS4C).
    Hopefully these are the right ones for my motor.

    I read a similar post that was written awhile back but wanted to ask some more questions about these filters.

    How long are the rubber gaskets lasting on these filters?

    How have these filters been working for ya?

    Have one an opinion which is best?

    How do they compete against each other?

    Next, FYI as far as price:
    - the K&P seems to be most expensive
    - Sifton the cheapest (not implying anything)
    - PC in the middle

    *Anyone find them for cheaper anywhere other than where I listed em below...??
    *Yes I'm a lil price sensitive but willing to pay for the best quality one. :)


    Sifton...

    I use K&P on a couple of my bikes and I'm happy. I don't mind cleaning the filter on each oil change and they look nice.

    It's your choice and preference. There's no bad choice!

    I have the K&P and works just fine.
    I'd trust the sifton if Curtis carries it.

    I think that they have the same element inside them.
    Only the outside body is different.

    Damn, I thought it was chrome and all I do is wipe it off when changing. It sure looks like chrome.

    Did an oil change yesterday. Washed my filter in hot water and dish soap. Dried it with paper towels and vacuumed out all the moisture. Easy to do and no brake fluid to buy and dispose of.

    Instead of a vacuum, I use compressed air to blow it out and then let it sit to dry.
