No knocking or criticizing what you want but I have to ask, why?
Other then lightening you wallet and having a warm fuzzy cause you have an extra quart of oil its purely a marketing scheme. A solution for a non existent problem. Even the MoCo's 120R doesn't use or need a larger pan.

Oh and its black because blacks faster.

For the $800 that the oil pan cost you could buy 80 quarts of oil at $10 a quart and change your oil every 2500 miles for the next 50,000 miles. Or you could go the normal 5000 miles between and it would cover you for 100,000 miles. Sorry but the Baker pan is not money well spent. If that extra quart was really a problem then why isn't there hundreds of thousands of twin cams melted on the side of the road?
Think about it for a minute. The moco had been make about 200,000 twin cams a year for the past 14 years, that's 2.8 million motors. If it extra quart was a problem I think it would have been noticed by now. Its just some crap that Baker came out with about 7 years ago to boost sales. It hasn't caught on yet to date because its a solution to a non existent problem.

Well not looking like I am going to purchase one, but I would have like to had one if it was resonablly price.
First I know so many that run half a qaurt low to keep it from spitting out the breather, it would still allow more oil in pan even if it is a qaurt low.
Second the routing of the oil is more benificial than the extra oil.
Third a 10-15 degree drop in temp is big advantage.
I live in the mounting & ride mostly mountains my bikes will normally run hotter for longer periods than most.
Things are operated every day that could be improved up on, I guess my bike will to.

It amazes me how people wouldn't buy a better oil pan even if it would help a bike run 30 degree cooler, at $50.00.
But then they will pay $100.00 for a Air filter that allows more dirt to reach the engine.
Go Figure, to each there own.

I am with you. I am a guy with extra inches in my motor. tends suck up some oil to the air filter. A +1 or +1.5 would be handy to lower the oil level in the pan for me for that reason. Just cause Harley doesnt do it doesn't mean that it is a messed up idea. it just means that a guy from baker had a good idea and made it happen. I can get one for about $700 from my parts guy. I have had one of these in my hands and the machine work is amazing........ the ONLY reason I don't have one is because of the headache of relocating all my air ride "stuff" into another location.

Yes, I would definately be putting one on my bike if they where more reasonably priced.
