TX750 oil filer adapter

I purchased an oil adapter and filter from Jim Dishman, he has an eBay store that he sells them. link to one of his auctions - http://tiny.cc/ld33j . Jim was great to deal with and shipped the adapter in a timely manner!

The install was straight forward. I removed the old filter and assembly, kept the main long bolt, the large o-ring and the copper washer for the bolt. From there I put the old bolt in position with the filter and inserted the adapter and filter in where the old filter hardware used tm be. The kit also came with instructions, but it was easy~ ]

Here are the pictures




Install high resolution fotos.

Nice! I had a 73 back in the day. That year did not have the eccentric adjustable shafts for the omni phase balance system, but I upgraded it and sold in 75. It later grenade d under a subsequent owner. Not too many of those around anymore but it was a fun machine and comfy. I reckon that oil filter is unobtainium these days so nice job on the upgrade.

So does the filter go inside the case? I have a 1973 TX750 out of the bone yard that I've been playing with. I read about the Toby Folick's oil filter mod, but have not tried it.

SOS- Yes, the filter goes right in the case. I have been following your post about your 73 TX750. Any updates?

Thanks. I haven't got to the TX lately.Tthe electrical harness is really bad. I've got new pins and connectors coming to rebuild it, but they are backordered. Trying to get the F11 done in the mean time.

That filter adaptor looks like a must have for these bikes. I'll be getting one once the project is closer to finishing.

I think that color doesn`t fade as much as it yellows. making it darker than original. May have been an early clearcoat type paint. Gm had a color I wish I got on my truck called sunburst orange metallic that's pretty close. the 73 tx750 was is a pretty good looking bike but I had one so I`m partial to em.

Not original, just repainted by my Nephew. THE WHOLE BIKE had been rattle canned satin black by some Monster Garage wannabe... I washed off a lot, but the tin needed repaint. here's a pic as she sat at the Bettencourt auction, neglected, abused, and I was snickered at when i bid on it... he went DOWN from the original start bid, lol I had one too, it was my hooligan bike when I was 16yo
