ORK Question

    I ride a '99 1100 Custom and will get an oil filter relocation kit for it for next oil change (took him in today for an oil change and it took the techs over 3 hours to get the pipes--Shogun Ripsaws--off and back on). My question is, for those of you who already have an ORK, how much extra oil (if any) do you need to add to account for the cavity left by the relocated oil filter? I'd assume you need to add extra since there's more space to fill and to also account for the tubes going to the ORK (though I can't imagine that's much). Just looking at the details and wondering.

    Ride safe, watch out for cagers on cell phones, and thank The Man Upstairs for every safe ride...

    I still use between 3 1/2 and 4 qts. So not that much extra. I keep it in the lower middle of the level indicator. Any higher and I get oil in my air box.

    Hope that helps! BTW, I just did an oil change last week in under 20 minutes....10 of that was waiting for it to drain. You'll love the ORK

    I just installed my ORK by Phat Proformance on my 2004, 1100 Silverado and it took one gallon .

    My '03 Classic with a Jardine ORK only takes 3 full quarts plus 4 oz. to bring the oil level to the middle of the site glass.

    That sounds much more like it.

    IMO I'd be cautious adding a full 4 qts. If it's over full it could start forcing it's way into the air box. I've never seen one take that a full 4 qts before, but that doesn't mean it can't happen.

    I use a magnetic level on mine to insure the bike is straight up before I tighten it into my bike vise for an oil change. Then I make sure to keep the oil level on the lower middle side of the marks on the sight glass.

    I didn't notice much difference in oil volume when I installed mine.

    Thanks for the info, guys. I got the oil changed the other day...I have Shogun Ripsaw aftermarket pipes on it (installed by a previous owner)...and it took the techs a total of 3 1/2 hours to get everything disconnected and reconnected. Woulda taken me a week!

    Next change the ORK goes on.

    Ride safe...

    Wow, I am not much of mechanic and it only took me about an hour to install my ork and that was about how long it took me to do my first oil change. You must have some tricky pipes.

    I have the PER-FORM ORK. It is a little different from most others. Being that the oil lines are pressure crimped hydraulic type lines. I run a Harley oil filter and mine uses 3 quarts and 12 ounces give or take. I've had this ORK for 30,000mi now and never had a leak or other problem.,L.B.
