There are usually two methods to check the oil. One is a dipstick and the other is a sight-glass. You should have one or the other somewhere on the side of the engine crankcase. It should be fairly obvious and not require the removal of any body panels. If you can't find a dipstick in the side of the crankcase you will need to get down on your hands and knees and have a look for a sight-glass instead. This will be like a tiny window with a gauge against which you can check the level.

I have a 2007 sportster 1200 costom do you check the oil on the kick stand or standing stright up Thank You Vicki


On your Sporty, check the oil with the bike on the kickstand. The dipstick has two marks on it. The top mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Do not overfill your oil tank. Keep the oil between the two lines. I suggest that as long as you can see the oil on the dipstick when the engine is cold, do not add oil. Ride the bike to get the engine to full temp and then check the oil and add if necessary.

Also, if the bike has been sitting for an extended period of time and the oil checks low, do not add oil. When the bike sits for a long time (three months or so) the oil can seep past the check valve and "oil sump" the bottom end. When you start the engine,it will pump this oil back to the tank. If you fill the tank before you start the engine, you'll have a major mess.

Good Luck

Fluid capasities in a 2002 dyna twin cam. oil, trans,primary?


Engine oil - 3 qts
Primary oil - 34-42 oz.
transmission - 20-24 ounces.

The engine oil and the transmission oil both have dipsticks. Maintain the oil levels according to the dipstick indications. Each dipstick has two marks. The top mark represents "FULL HOT" while the lower mark represents "FULL COLD" . Check the engine oil with the bike on the side stand. Check the transmission oil with the bike standing straight up.

On the primary, check or add oil with the bike standing straight up. Do not overfill. The oil level should be no higher than the lowest edge of the clutch spring. If you put too much oil in the primary, the clutch will drag making it impossible to find neutral with the engine running.

Good Luck

Ride bike (and enjoy)
Park bike on side stand, let sit for at least 10 minutes or overnight. (lets oil drain out of cooler into sump)
Put bike on center stand. Bike should be on level ground

Do i have to leave my bike on the kick stand to add the oil? or do i have to stand my bike up? and what should the tire preasure be on the front and back tires?


On your Sportster, leave the bike on the side stand to check your oil. Now there are two marks on the stick. The top mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Do not overfill. As long as the oil is on the stick, start the bike up and allow it to warm up. Once warm, check the oil. NEVER add oil to a cold engine. Why? Because when Harleys are allowed to sit for a while, the oil seeps past the check ball in the oil pump. This allows oil to pool in the crankcase. If a quart of oil seeps past this ball and you check the oil before starting the bike, it'll be a quart low in the tank. But that quart of oil may be in the crankcase. When you start the bike up, the oil pump pumps the oil out of the crankcase and now suddenly, you're a quart overfull. We're talking a big mess now. So, as long as you know you've got oil in the engine, start it up and warm the engine before adding oil.

Tire pressure should be 30 psi in the front tire, 36 psi in the rear with a single rider, 40 psi with two riders.

Where do you check engine oil? Should there be a


hi,
you can check the oil level in your bike by using the "oil sight glass" at the lower part of engine in the left hand side of your bike, just below the left foot peg.there are two marks, the upper mark referring the maximum capacity for oil level and the lower mark showing the minimum level.The oil level can be anywhere between these two marks.Please make sure of two things while you check the oil level in your bike.
  • Run your engine for two min so that the oil is warm while you check the level.Never check the oil level in a cold engine.
  • Hold the bike in upright vertical position while checking the oil level.
I have provided an example picture showing the location of the oil filter in a Yamaha v-star.Hope your problem is solved.Please rate my solution as 8a0e22a.jpghelpful.Have a great day.

Losing Oil in a 2000 Kawasaki ZR-750


make sure when you check the oil that the bike has been sitting on the centre stand for about twenty minutes or so before you check it as there is still alot of oil in the cylinder head and oil coolers etc,sitting the bike will let the oil drain back to the sump and give you a correct reading,try this and see how you go,hope this helps

I have a 1994 heritage after changing oil and filling it to the full mark on the dipstick, I rode it 80 miles the next day I checked it again and the oil tank is over filled ???.What happened.


You over filled it, depending on the type of dipstick you have, the oil is checked either on the side stand or with the bike upright. If you have the type of dipstick that is floppy (the stick part flops around) you have to check the oil while the bike is on the side stand.

Regardless Softtails hold 3 quarts of oil, if you add exactly 3 quarts after draining the oil bucket and changing the filter the oil level will be correct (unless the oil has sumped).

The other thing that happens sometimes when the bike sits for any period of time without running the oil can sump from the bucket into the engine crankcase. If this happens it will look like you are low on oil, so if you go adding oil and then run the bike it will unsump and overflow the bucket making a hell of a mess.

Hope this helps you.

Oil


Also check that bike is properly positioned. Is bike on level ground? With most bikes oil is checked on center stand or holding bike upright not on side stand. Also check manual some bikes say to check hot very few with cold motor. (many bikes with oil tanks will fill up crankcase and appear empty if checked cold especially after sitting for a long time) Most will say to wait a period of time after turning off motor (usually between 10 and 30 min.) but some say to check immediately after turning off. ,

Drain and change oil


I can't tell you all the particulars from the limited amount of pictures of your bike. -Remove the oil drain bolt on the bottom of the crankcase (the universal bolt size for bikes use a 17mm wrench). -Drain the oil (remember to recycle). -Re-install the drain bolt with a new sealing washer if necessary. -The oil fill cap should be some where on the top of the crankcase. About 1 or 25mm in diameter with a raised tab for turning. -Fill with recommended oil. -There are 2 ways to check oil level on dirt bikes: 1) Oil level check bolt. On the right side cover. 2) Oil level site glass. A 1 round piece of glass on the side of the crankcase. Usually by the kick start & R brake lever. -Always check the oil level with the bike upright (as if you were sitting on it). -Check bolt - fill with oil slowly until oil comes out of the check bolt and re-install it. -Sight glass - fill with oil to cover 3/4 of the sight glass. -Remember to hold the bike upright when adding oil.,
