The answer seems obvious: for maximum longevity you should filter oil being used to lubricate the innards of an IC engine.
But to my knowledge, most if not all the Speedster replicas coming from Hawaiian Gardens, be it Vintage Speedsters or later Vintage Motorcars, were built with no oil filter. I have a Vintage Motorcars Speedster sans oil filter and was wondering if I should install one.
Notably my old Triumph motorcycles didn’t have oil filters and engine component wear— bearings, pistons, cam shaft — didn’t seem out of ordinary compared to other MC engines that had oil filters.
And if I should install an oil filter, which filter kit has the least failure points and is the easiest to install?
