Question about 2002 Harley Davidson XL 883 R Sportster
I bought my Sportster this past march with 2200 miles. Now I have about 6400 miles on it and figure it was time for a oil change. Can anyone help me with an how to change the oil. My uncle has an 2007 Softtail but doesn't know if we change the oil the same way. So if someone can help me out here that would be great.
The sportster differs in that there are only 2 holes compared to the 3 on the softail. You drain the main oil via tube at the rear of the engine and the primary/trans with a bolt under the bike make sure you get the correct one as its close to the adjuster for the primary chain. you need 3qts for the motor with a new filter and 1qt for the primary/trans use the forumla+ or Spectro sporty heavy duty primary/trans in the primary and your choice in the motor. whilst your servicing it make sure all the motor mounts are tight and the fuel and oil lines are leak free and get the dielectric grease onto the fuse block and relays and adjust the primary chain

I have a 2002 883 and recently changed oil by drawing it out of the oil tank with a suction pump that looks like a grease gun. I could get way down to the bottom of the reservior. I put in 2 qts 15/50 Mobil one and changed the filter. Took about 7 min. checked oil level, right up there!
