    Today I received some Black Harley Davidson oil filters in the mail that I bought from E-Bay. HD Part #63731-99A SuperPremium 5 for my Twin-Cam 96! I had a Chrome Filter already in my closet stock that I got from the HD dealer & it has the HD small Bar & Shield stamped into the inside base of the filter above the screw in threads. I looked at the black filters that arrived in the HD boxes & they have "AA" stamped into the base rather than the HD Bar & Shield? They look exactly like the chrome filter other than the Bar & Shield stamping. My question is did the seller de-fraud me by putting a HD clone filter into aN original HD oil filter box?.........I am very observant & check over everything.....Does anybody have a plain black HD filter to check for me?...
    Thanks in advance!.....:sd

    That's what I thought too! I thought every genuine HD part has the Bar & Shield logo! Those two filters are going into the trash container! I will not use anything but HD parts on my motor or Bike!......Thanks!....:coffee

    I have a whole case of HD filters I'd bought two years ago, so I'll check them when I get home tonight and see what they have.

    It's quite possible they'd sold you the Champion brand of filter since Champion makes the HD SuperPremium filter. It's also possible you've been duped with a clone brand of filter. Might also call your local dealer and have them check on the new filters in case there has been a change.

    The oil filter I have that I bought last week from dealer has the bar and shield stamped on the filter's base.

    So the filters would be 30 micron for the Evo engines, and not the 5 micron needed on the Twin Cams.

    Suggest gifting them to a friend with an Evo engine and start over at your dealer.
