KN-172B oil filter for classic Harley Davidson motorcycles

The KN-172B's 17mm top-mounted nut allows it to be easily wrenched off.

Although there may be as many different opinions on the definition of "classic" as there are motorcycles of the 20th century, a modern dictionary suggests it is "something pure, genuine and worth remembering.” The Harley-Davidson range that includes the 1980 to 1986 Sportster, Roadster, Electra Glide, Wide Glide, Super Glide, and Super Bob, can definitely be tagged as pure, genuine, and worth remembering.

KN-172B oil filter for classic Harley Davidson motorcycles

Thick-wall, heavy-duty can construction stands up to the rigors of the road and its modern synthetic filter media is designed for ultimate flow with less pressure drop.

A crucial part of keeping these genuine American motorcycles road-worthy is close attention to healthcare maintenance with oil changes utilizing a K&N KN-172B Performance Oil Filter. The KN-172B replaces two different OE filters and one aftermarket filter in 37 models. The M16 x 1.5 threads provide a quick spin-on, and the 17mm top-mounted welded nut allows it to be easily wrenched off.

The KN-172B's thick-wall, heavy-duty can construction stands up to the rigors of the road and its modern synthetic filter media is designed for excellent flow with less pressure drop. This resin-impregnated, uniform-pleated material can trap up to 99% of harmful contaminants that make it into the filter, a big plus for keeping the Harley's circulatory system free of stress. Adding to the stress-free application of this filter is K&N's limited warranty that covers defects in manufacturing and workmanship.

As rugged as their owners and the roads they travel, through town and country, on highways and back roads, these street bikes each have taken a hit or two and rolled up thousands of miles. They need to be handled with care as they age, and the KN-172B will aid that effort.

The KN-172B replaces the following part numbers:
Fram PH6019
Harley-Davidson 6378280
Harley-Davidson 6381080A
