On my 89 heritage flstc, with a 3 quart oil tank, I use just about 2.75 quarts to allow for expansion. Also I scratched a mark on the dip-stick to let me know if it gets too low

Gas coming out left exhaust pipe


do not run this motorcycle anymore until you fix your carb(s). you have a serious flooding condition that could lead to a total loss. Your float or needle/seat or both are bad. depending on the age of the bike depends on how much money it's going to cost and where you can find the parts but they are out there...

Why does My oil cap keep popping off when I rab my 883 sportster up


Hi Anonymous, the engine breather system on Harley Davidsons has NEVER been famous for being a trouble free zone. Oil tank dip stick launches happen far to often than they should in my humble opinion. As engine sizes get bigger so does the volume of air created by the piston downstroke, and for the most part the diameter of the breathing excape route stays the same. The usual cause of dipstick launch is a worn out rubber seal that requires no effort to remove or install, a new rubber seal requires some effort to push it in the oil tank and some effort to remove it. Next in line is an oil tank the is over filled. Try a new dipstick and running your oil level half way between the add and full mark. Good luck

I want to know the oil level at a 1981 xlh harley 1000 when cold


Your dipstick should have two marks on it. The top mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Check the oil level with the bike on the side stand. My advice is to never add oil to the oil tank when the engine is cold. As long as you can see oil on the stick, ride the bike until it reaches operating temp and then add oil only when it's below the lower mark when hot. I never "top the oil off". The reason you never add oil to the tank when cold is that if the bike is not ridden for a period of time, the oil will seep by the check valve in the oil pump. It does this because the oil tank is located higher on the frame than the engine. The oil collects in the engine cases. If you "top the oil tank off", when the engine is started and it pumps the oil from the case into the tank, the tank is now overfilled. It will blow the filler cap out and oil will go everywhere making a big mess.

Good Luck

When i pull drain plug off oil pan very little oil comes out and oil tank is full


I don't know what plug you're taking out but it's evidently the wrong one. If you'll look at the oil tank from the right side of the bike, on the backside down at the bottom of the tank you'll see a hose. Follow this hose down behind the transmission and back out just below the transmission. The hose either dead ends there with a plug in it or it connects to the crossmember of the frame that runs across below the transmission. If the hose connects to the crossmember, the drain plug is directly underneath the point where the hose connects. I hope this helps.

Good Luck

Dealer's usually tell you the amount you need if the bike is completely empty. Take a turkey baster and remove some oil, ride the bike and check the oil level again. I have seen to much oil blow the dip stick out and cover everything with oil and I have seen the oil tank split.
