Thread: Oil Filter
07-02-2007, 08:08 PM #1
I am changing the oil in my ultra and the dealer provided me the 16097-003. Once again, they did the first service on it and the oil filter that I just removed is bigger and the number on it is a -004. The SM and IPB call for the -003. Besides size is there in functional difference between them? Could it affect performance?

I would not advise using the -004. I as well as others have researched this well. Don`t take a chance with the 004 filter. You could find yourself with internal engine damage.

he already had the -004 on there. It's all good, just use the -003 from now on, until someone says different.
Kinda like how the news tells you your going to die from eating something, then it's healthy a year later. Damn Communists

The reason you had a 0004 filter on there because the dealer didn't have an Ultra filter so they put on a 15F filter. So they could have caused an issue and if a failure did ac-cure then the filter surly would have been to blame.
Use the 0003. Stay with that filter and even if you do hear of a better dont use it. Stick with the 0003. Its warranty safe and meats the flow requirement of this motor.
