Replacing the Engine Oil & Filter

A major part of keeping your motorcycle purring smoothly is replacing the engine oil and filter. Engine oil is incredibly important to the health of your Harley-Davidson and should be inspected during routine maintenance. Engine oil lubricates the moving parts of the engine, reduces friction, acts as a coolant, traps debris, and catalyzes internal combustion. As you ride your bike, your engine oil will filter particles and relocate them to the oil filter. The condition of your engine oil can indicate potential or current issues. Talk to your Harley-Davidson mechanic about any alarming plastics or other items found in the filter.

Your engine oil should prevent corrosion and encourage optimal performance. The life-span of your engine depends on changing oil frequently. It’s paramount that engine oil health is a priority during your Harley-Davidson 1,000-mile servicing.
