SOURCE: need to know how to

There are two plugs on the bottom of the transmission, one for the engine oil, one for the tranny lube. The engine oil drain is the one that is closest to the left front corner of the oil pan. The other plug is the transmission.

The engine requires three quarts of oil, the tranny takes 20-24 ounces of oil.. Check the engine oil with the bike on the side stand. There are two marks on the dipstick. The upper mark is the "FULL HOT", the lower mark is the 'FULL COLD" mark. Keep the oil level between these two marks and do not overfill.

On the transmission, on the right side of the transmission, you'll see a chrome clutch release cover. It's behind the exhaust system. There is a plug that takes a 3/8" Allen or Hex key to remove. Check the oil level with the bike standing straight up.

As for what lubricants to use, I always use nothing but Harley-Davidson oil. 20W50 Syn 3 oil in the engine, transmission, and primary on 2000 and later model bikes. However, you can use other oils such as Amsoil, Royal Purple, Mobil, Motor Factory, and many others. Synthetic or petroleum based, your choice. Check the website of the manufacturer that you wish to use.

Good Luck
Steve

SOURCE: I need 2 do oil

Your engine holds three quarts of oil, 20W50 petroleum or synthetic.

Your Primary holds about a quart of oil. Stand the bike straight up and fill up to the lower edge of the outer clutch basket through the derby cover access. Do not overfill or the clutch will drag. H-D primary and transmission lubricant.

Your Transmission holds 20-24 ounces of the same H-D primary and transmission lubricant. Stand the bike up straight, remove the plug from the chrome end on the right side of the transmission that takes a large hex key to remove. Level should be between the lines on the dipstick.

As for what brand of lubricant, there are many of them on the market that are sufficient to do the job. I stick with H-D lubricant for the primary and transmission. I like H-D, Mobil V-Twin, or Amsoil for the engine. Whatever brand you choose, check their website for suitability and their recommendations.

Good Luck
Steve

What weight fork oil should i use in a 1987 goldwing


Many Gold Wing riders use ATF. I would try this first. See how it rides. If you want a firmer ride use 15W fork oil. Rod

Where is the transmission oil serviced


Run the Low Rider's motor for a few minutes to warm the oil up. Shut off the bike.
  • 2 Find your Low Rider's drain plug (on the oil pan). Using the screwdriver, loosen then remove the drain plug, and drain the oil into the drain pan.
  • 3 Remove the Low Rider's dipstick.
  • 4 Let the oil drain completely.
  • 5 Clean the drain plug threads with a clean cloth or paper towel, apply sealant, and replace the oil plug and dipstick.
  • 6 Move the drain pan to beneath the oil filter. Using the oil filter wrench, remove the oil filter.
  • 7 Discard the filter in the pan with the old oil. It is full of oil.
  • 8 With a clean rag or paper towel, clean the area where the gasket meets the motor.
  • 9 With a clean finger, rub a bit of new oil on the gasket of the new oil filter before installing it.
  • 10 Install the new filter, turning until snug, then turn it by hand another 1/2 turn. Take care to not over-tighten, as this will damage the filter gasket or the filter, possibly causing the Low Rider to fail.
  • 11 Open the oil reservoir, using the funnel; fill the tank with the fresh oil and close the reservoir.
  • 12 Run the motor for a few moments to coat the engine with the new oil. Check for leaks. (If you find any, check the filter and drain plug for a tight fit.)
  • 13 If there are no leaks, after the motor has run for a few minutes, turn off the motor and check the oil level. Top it off if necessary.

  • hope this helps

    Add transmission fluid to 2001 Harley dyna low rider


    the tranny plug is behind the oil spout its usually a big allen head bolt. You should use a quality oil like AMSOIL 20W50 motorcycle oil or AMSOIL gear oil. I have the 20W50 in mine and really like the benifit of not having a pultrolium product in my bike. You can get the AMSOIL online a http://hbsynlube.com/sales. You'll beglad you changed it.
