The drain plug for your bike should be on the botom of the engine. Remove the plug and drain the oil. Remove the oil filter and repalce it with a fresf one. Fill the new oil until the site glass or dip stick is at the correct marked level.

How often do I need to change the oil filter on my night rod 2009?

You can change a LOT of oil filters for the price of one engine overhaul. I change the oil filter EVERY TIME I change oil. It may be overkill but rebuilding any engine is EXPENSIVE these days.

Oil change cold or warm engine

Cold oil will take longer to drain versus hot oil. This subject can go around in circles till time ends.The most important concern is really regular oil/filter changes. A good quality filter will remove the harmful particulates that can damage your engine. If you choose to change your oil when it's hot I highly recommend that you wear insulated gloves.

Im after service guidelines for 96 evo

In my opinion, the Evo engine is the best engine Harley ever designed. Sure it has a few problem areas but as far a good basic engine or an engine that can be modified for tremendous power, the Evo is the one for me.

Basically, change the engine oil at least every 3000 miles, the primary oil and transmission oil at 5000 mile intervals. Personally, I change the oil in all three every 1000 miles. Oil is much less expensive than engine overhauls.

Check the adjustment of your primary chain everytime you change the oil. Remove the tappet filter screen, (little plug on the crankcase near the oil pump), and clean that every oil change.

Other than that, keep an eye on your rear drive belt tension, your brake pads and fluid level. That's about it. Today's Harleys are better than they've ever been. Take that from someone that works on the old Pans, Shovels, and Ironheads. Today's Harleys are real feats of engineering. Enjoy your bike and ride carefully.
