Yes but they did come out with a newer filter for the M8 that is a little longer, I don't know if its out yet but have seen several posts on here about it.

Does it also still fit the TC? I assume the mating surfaces are the same ....so it should.

But....just ordered Amsoil oil change kits that come with filters.

Bulletin says only tested for M8.  TC uses the older style filter.

I believe it will be too long for use on TC engine.

Odds are the new longer filter will interfere with the sensor on a Twin Cam.  The M8's moved that sensor to the bottom of the engine so it's not a problem for those.  Harley's own bulletin mentions, btw, that use of the new filter is not mandatory on the M8 to maintain warranty coverage.  If you already have a supply of the earlier style shorter filters, feel free to use them up on an M8.

But out of an abundance of caution if you have several of the old filters and feel compelled to start using the new improved better happier improved sweeter and all-around hipper filter you can send all your old ones to Don Carey  :drink: .
