SOURCE: How much oil does my 2005 Harley Davidson XL 1200

Maybe it wasn't flushed and there was still some old oil in it.
Do these things have a level indication?
If the level is right, start the bike and run it for a minute or so, watch the oil light. Then stop it, leave it a few mions to let the oil settle in the sump and check it again.
What I mean by flushing out, have a look at how it's done on a different type of bike -

On my Harley 1200 Sportster Custom 2005 the oil filler cap does not twist fully and sit securely leaving a small opening. After a short ride I notice oil running down the side of the oil tank?? Why


Your oil will expand and push out of the oil tank if the cap is not sealed. That is why there is an o-ring on the cap. You must have it sealed in order to keep oil from leaking out of it.

2005 Harley Sportster Custom , oil tank cap leaks until tank is half a quart low ,could o-ring need replaced it is loose .


If the tank cap is loose, you need to get a new seal or simply replace the entire cap. There are two marks on the dipstick. The upper mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Do not add oil to the tank when the oil is cold. As long as there is oil on the stick, ride the bike until it comes to operating temp and then add any oil if it needs any. This is a common mistake on the Sportsters. If you bring the oil up to the top mark when cold, it'll expand and blow the tank cap out and make a big mess. Do not overfill the tank but if the tank cap is loose, replace it.

Good Luck

What kind of oil does this bike use and the tire pressure should be what?


If the bike is 2005 Harley Davidson XL1200 Sportster, it uses Harley Davidson Syn3 20W50 oil. You can use any good petroleum or synthetic oil of this weight as long as it has a API code rating with CG or better for use in diesel engines. Amsoil makes a good substitute or Mobil V-Twin.

Tire pressure is 30 psi in the front 36 psi in the rear
