This deep oil pan is a solid aluminum casting and a direct replacement for the original. It increases your bike's oil capacity to 3.5 liters, which is 1 to 1-1/2 liters more than stock depending on which original oil pan you have. More is better when it comes to oil. It will help keep your bike running cooler and the oil will be less stressed and will keep its lubrication qualities longer.
You will be amazed by the quality of this part! It is as good or better than the part that it replaces and it has the appearance of an original part with the benefits of increased oil capacity.
You will need a new oil pan gasket when installing this part. We also suggest using gasgacinch to form a perfect seal. Both are sold separately. You will also need a new drain plug seal ring and now would be the perfect time to install a magnetic drain plug, if you don't already have one.
Please Note: When installing this on a /5, /6 or /7, (models up to 1980) you will need to remove or relocate the upper cross brace for the center stand. This is not necessary on 1981 and later models.
