Drain the gast tank. Remove the chrome bolt holding the dash to the tank. Lift up the dash and disconnect all the electrical connections. Remove the dash. Remove the seat. Remove the bolt at the bottom tank mount. Remove the nut and bolt at the bottom front of the tank. Disconnect the gas line on the left side bottom of tank. If the tank has a crossover line at the front, disconnect it. Lift the rear of the tank and block it up with piece of wood or something similar. Disconnect the electrical connection for the gas gauge under the left side of the tank. Remove the tank. Installation is reverse of removal. Don't forget to reconnect the fuel gauge and gas line, and crossover, if equipped. Good luck!

Can not find the oil drain plug on my 2005 softail I drained the trann fluid thanks for any help you can give me ROY

Look at the oil tank on your bike from the right side. At the bottom rear corner on the backside, you'll see a large diameter hose that comes out and goes down behind the transmission. Follow the hose all the way down behind the exhaust pipes and you'll see that it plugs onto a crossmember in the frame. Feel on the bottom side of this crossmember and you'll feel the drain plug. It screws into the crossmember from underneath it. Remove the plug and your oil tank drains. Refill with three quarts of 20W50 oil . Your transmission holds 20-24 ounces of oil.

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

On all Softail models, look along the bottom of the oil tank from the right side of the bike. You'll see a line or hose going downward towards the transmission. Usually, unless the changed something, the line will come out along the frame down below and behind the transmission. There will be a plug in the end of the line. Remove the plug to drain the oil.

Good luck

Want to change the oil and filter on my 1999 flstc

The oil drain is a large diameter hose with a metal plug in it. It runs down along the backside of the frame just behind the transmission on the right hand side of the bike. There is a metal clip welded onto the frame to hold the hose. Take the hose out of the clip, remove the plug, and drain the oil tank. Refill with three quarts of oil

The transmission drain is a small 1/8" pipe plug that takes a Torx wrench to remove. It is located on the right side of the transmisson just below the chrome clutch release cover. The tranny takes 20-24 ounces of H-D trans lube or Syn3 oil. The transmission fills through the large hole in the top of the chrome clutch release cover. It takes a 7/16" hex key to remove the plug, It has a dipstick on the plug.
