Harley Oil Filter

Q: I’ve done many oil changes on my FXR’s & Dyna’s for 25yrs. The service manual doesn’t call for filling Harley oil filter with oil on these models when doing oil changes so I’ve put new oil filters on without filling with oil. Should I be putting oil in filter before installing them?

A: It is always good practice to fill your new oil filter with oil before installing. If there is no oil in your filter, you only have air. Your oil system does not call for air, only oil. It is unfavorable to have air in your system, as it may disrupt proper circulation. If this can be avoided, it should be. Like we said: it’s just good practice.
