When in 2007 Bert Baker rode a FL Harley-Davidson he noticed how hot was running the damn thing. In traffic have you also noticed the little heat wave coming off the motor? The Harley factory oil pan is the of the same capacity (4-qt) on all Harleys since year 1993 (when motor was 80″ making 49 hp) until 2008. Did you say inadequate for the latest 88″ motors? Bert Baker thinks so and designed a 5 qt capacity oil pan simply by going wider, not deeper. Taking a closer look at the stock pan he also discovered the stock pan has the oil pickup and return in the front of the pan within 2″ of each other. So he put the pickup in the rear and the return in the front for better oil circulation. Hence the Baker Plus One Oil Pan (Baler +1) reducing oil temperature by 10-30 degrees. (see temperatures readings after the jump)
Features: – Cast oil pans are 1-piece design and made with A356-T6 aluminum. – Billet oil pans are 2-piece design and made with 6061-T6 aluminum. – BAKER pans have a feed in the back and return in the front for better oil circulation. – Reduces engine oil temperature by 10-30 degrees. The longer and hotter the ride, the bigger the temperature differential as compared to stock. – Multiple integral baffles eliminate the stock spring loaded baffle. – Integral bosses for Alloy Art TXR and True Track stabilizers structurally located on the bottom. – True bolt on part, no modifications required. – Compatible with factory oil temperature sensor. Designed with 3D solid modeling to increase pan capacity by 1 quart. – Integral boss for True Track and Alloy Art TXR stabilizer structurally located in the rear of the pan. – True bolt on part, no modifications required. – Compatible with factory oil temperature sensor.
