Question about Harley Davidson Motorcycles

1 Answer

I was changing the oil on my 2002 heritage classic & removed a drain plug ( 5/8 ) located just behind & between the shock absorbers. Oil drained out but the tank still showed full. I then located the correct drain plug & proceeded to drain the oil. My question is, what did I drain on the first plug? Thanks, frank

I think you just drained the transmission oil. You better replace the oil or you will have a very expensive repair.

I have a 2009 heritage softail classic and cannot locate the drain plugs for the oil and transmission. Is there any printed drawings of these locations? Thank you Jim Ragazzo


For your oil drain, look at the oil tank from the right side of the bike. On the backside down at the bottom is where the hose comes out. It runs down behind the transmission and comes out just below the chrome end plate on the transmission. Follow it on down and you'll see that it connects to the crossmember of the frame that runs under the transmission. Directly underneath this connection, under the crossmember there is a drain plug. Remove the plug and the oil will drain.

To drain the transmission, look at the chrome end plate on the transmission that the clutch cable runs into. This is the clutch release mechanism. Just below this, in the center the plate the chrome one bolts to, is a drain plug similar to a pipe plug. Remove the plug, transmission drains. Refill the transmission with 20-24 ounces of transmission lube.

Good Luck

Var sitter olje pluggarna för


Look on the bottom of the oil tank from the right side of the motorcycle. You will see a large diameter hose or pipe that goes down behind the transmission. Follow the hose on down and it end down at the lower part of the frame behind the exhaust pipes. There is usually a plug in the end of a rubber hose or the hose connects to a crossmember on the frame. Remove the metal plug from the hose to drain the oil. If the hose connects to the crossmember, there is a drain plug underneath the motorcycle that screws up into the crossmember of the frame.

The engine take 3 US quarts of 20W50 oil that is rated for DIESEL engine use.

I hope this helps. Good Luck and Best wishes to you and yours.

Where is the drain plug located on a 2007 Harley Davidson Heritage Classic.


Looking under the bike up at the motor you'll see 2 drain plugs, 1 is motor and 1 is transmission.
Its easy to determine which is which because the transmission plug is vertical and the motor is horizontal.
Also you can drain the oil tank from the oil tank drain line which is plugged by a nipple on the frame. On the kickstand side of the bike, behind transmission.

Locating oil drain plug 2000 heitage softail?


Look at the oil tank from the right side down near the lower rear. You should see a hose going down behind the transmission. It goes on down to the lower tube on the frame behind the exhaust system. There is a metal plug in the line. Remove the plug to drain the oil.

The hose may run from the tank down to a crossmember of the frame where the shocks connect. If so, there is a plug screwed up from the bottom of the crossmember. I don't know what year they changed.

Good Luck

Cant find oil drain plug on 2000 flstc


From the right hand side of the bike. look at the bottom of the oil tank. There is a large hose or pipe going down behind the transmission and coming out below the transmission behind the exhaust system. Follow this hose to the end and you'll find a plug in it. Remove the plug to drain the oil. Now, Harley ran the hose to a crossmember of the frame in the same area and the plug screws in from underneath the bike. I don't know what year they made this change but the drain is located at the end of the large hose under the transmission.

Good Luck
