Be careful with aftermarkets as they may restrict the oil flow. Remember Sportys have little oil pressure and the relief valve will open to bypass the flow if the filter (ie porosity) is too restrictive. HD's filter for the Sporty is the one you want, 30 micron, most others are 10. K&N makes a filter for a Sporty, in black or chrome, but the HD is cheaper.

Until I'm running a built motor at the ragged edge of RPM's...

I'd wager the H-D filter is plenty good enough for 95% of the bikes you'll see on this forum. Running a drag bike or racing, maybe a different story. I've used K&N as well as specialty race systems for years on other stuff so I'm definitely not against them, but if you don't have a need for it and you are running stock on pump fuel I'd suggest getting an Engine Oil Analysis done before you worry about your oil filter.


Just my $.02

There's a big difference between a filter that "will fit", and one that meets the MoCo's EVO 30 micron specification.

The EVO motors (Sporty included) have a 30 micron filter spec.
The BT Twin-Cam motors have a 5 micron filter spec.
The 5 and 30 micron filters are physically the same when it comes to screwing it onto the motor, but that doesn't mean it's the correct filter.

The correct Harley filters for a sporty are:
HD Black 63805-80A
HD Chrome 63796-77A
HD Chrome 63813-90T - (Extended Capacity)
