    I would hope so. Less than a minute sounds like 45 seconds which is a lot of time to build up pressure.

    I recommend an HD filter. The one you're using may not have a functional anti-drainback feature, and the oil drains out of the filter between engine runs.

    Just a thought...

    Enjoy,

    If you need to be convinced, open up a Genuine HD filter and a Fram filter and compare the two. Can't speak for all the other brands but the HD 63798-99A is a very well made filter.

    If you do a search on the forum, you'll find that most use the HD filter for different reasons. Just because it fits as far as application, doesn't mean it will do the job as well. Your Fram may be lacking a drain back valve. HD filters are specked for the HD engines.

    Not to knock Fram too much, but their filters have been known to come undone on Harleys, The paper inside the filters comes un glued, cut one apart one time and see:s They may have been OK in the Shovel head days but I woukd not have one now, not even on the Redheads Rav 4 JMO

    Yep very true here. I wouldn't use any filters but the HD filters on an HD.
