Any tricks or secrets I should know before I tackle an oil pan removal job on a 2010 flhx from a flaten lifter?
Thanks gents

Nothing to it, but you do know you have to remove the rear wheel to get the oil pan off? Also the transmission needs to be drained too.

When putting it back together, use 4 very small plastic wire ties to hold the gasket it place, one at each corner, attach the ties "loose" so the gasket floats. Then when the pan is in place start a few of the bolts in holes where there is no wire tie, then cut and remove the ties. Keeps you from buggering up the gasket.

Remove real wheel and slide pan out the back of the bike. This would be a good time to upgrade to the new SE pan or a Baker. Both claim 1.5 qts of extra capacity but I have found the Baker only holds about an extra qt and I really dont like to add even quite that much more because that makes it all the way full and causes blow by issues and oil getting into throttle body. I always end up a couple of ounces less than 5 qts total.  Probably the nicer feature is the 2 levels of the Baker pan and the new SE pan appears to have the same design. The 2 levels (upper and lower) help with cooling the oil. I dont need no stinking water cooled. My 124" oil temps almost never get to 220 degrees.

I wouldnt be surprised if Baker isnt making the SE pan. At first glance at least, they look pretty close to the same.

At about a grand of Porn too.
Been looking for a good used one for about 2 years now and havent found one yet.
Have put the tip with twist ties in the gray matter file for future reference.

Just curious about the oil temps, what were you seeing before the oil pan on that bike? Assuming all that was changes was the pan.

http://www.harley-davidson.com/store/high-capacity-oil-pan  $600 for an oil pan? It doesn't have any moving parts. Am I the only one that thinks that's nuts?.,,

I didnt run the stock pan long enough on the 124" to get a fair average.

It's amazing they can sell the stock one, that consists of a casting, a stamped steel inner baffle and powdercoating for around 90 bucks yet the SE costs 600
If you don't have a sense of humor you probably have no sense at all.
