If you still have th eold pan and its just a crack or a small peice knocked out you can have a professional welder fix it for a small fee and alot easier than trying to locate a replacement usually.

BMW f650 funduro oil sump plug rotates but won't come out

The threads are bad. If you cannot get under the head of the plug or use vice grips to pull it out, then you are going to have to remove the whole sump pan.

Yamaha blaster 2001 starts up runs smokes bad it will hardly pull it self the throttle works good but it seems like it dont

Hi Nathan and the usual suspects are:
1. Oil tank/pan overfilled.
2. Restricted oil return line to oil tank/pan.
3. Restricted breather operation.
4. Restricted oil filter.
5. Piston rings badly worn or broken.
6. Valve guides are worn and or seals are worn, crushed, missing, or have come of guide and are literally pumping oil through the valve guide.
7. O-ring damaged or missing from oil pump at crankcase junction (also results in poor engine performance). For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

I have a 2002 Dyna Super Glide. What is going on with the oil?

I am having a hard time with this one and wrote a long thought trail about the oiling system and possibilities and meanderings but computer shut down to update and lost it all which might not be such a bad thing overall.

So, simply, no point going over the oiling system, cam cover etc etc. BUT if no oil is there, HOPEFULLY YOU STILL HAVE OIL PRESSURE AND THEREFORE OIL FLOW, with no hot oil level but overfull cold level it could be that the scavenge pump is doing its job but the oil is staying up in the sump/oil pan baffle area after having been returned there from the engine and is blocked there by some kind of obstruction and so does not return to the bottom of the sump right away but later weeps down when the bike is stopped and you have too much oil in the system so when it all weeps/leaks down the level accurately reads too high. You need to track this down and fix it. Too much oil can be almost as bad as too little. I have seen some pretty weird stuff like material looking like cloth or rag pieces etc intruding into the system and plugging up the oil return. You might have to pull the oil pan off to investigate this possibility a little further. Has the engine been separate from the transmission anytime or has the oil pan been off. Are you going through a romantic breakup?? Someone have access to your bike and not like you??? All possibilities are relevant. Maybe something got into or was put into your engine oil system BUT in order for foreign material to get to the baffle system through the engine it would have to go through the oil scavenge pump and oil passages and no chance of anything significant in itself going through that or the oil passages. Not much rationality in thinking of top end oil return problems etc. or oil build up in the gear case/cam cover area either. Oil pan baffles is the most rational/obvious place because if the oil remained up there it would not register on the dipstick and then, overfull or not, if it leaked down into the sump later it would read whatever amount was in the sump on the dipstick. If there is too much oil in the system it would naturally read overfull. You also need to make sure the breather is not plugged. I am also assuming your machine is all stock H-D. If not you should always post what you have and what you are dealing with.

I am doing an oil change on my firtst 88 inch twin cam. the manual shows where the drain plug is. but when I started draining what i thought was the motor oil . it appears that transmission oil came out....

I think the engine oil drain is on the bottom of the oil pan and the transmission oil drain is on the side. I'm really not positive as I work on the older models that have both drain plugs on the bottom of the pan. On my 1994 WideGlide, the drain plug in the middle of the pan is the transmission drain and the one on the front left bottom is the engine oil. Go to this site as look your bike up. Look at the Transmission picture of the housing.

Good Luck

I tried to drain my oil on my 2003 fxstdi from a plug on the bottom of the engine pan on brake side of bike. I of course learned this is NOT the right plug. The bike is supposed to be drained from the oil...

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
Oil spilled out on the bolt you removed? Hope to know more. It can be just a pan bolt that secures the oil pan. Just put it back and don't you worry. It will not harm your bike.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Where is the transmission drain plug

I'm not really sure on this late of a model. The drain is on the bottom of the transmission and I think it's a pipe plug on the front of the transmission oil pan. The earlier models that I work on had a drain plug that looked exactly like the engine oil drain plug that was also on the bottom of the oil pan. Many a transmission has been drained thinking it was the engine oil drain. Go to this site and look at the picture of the transmission housing. Pay particular attention to the oil pan gasket at the front of the pan. Notice the hole in the gasket directly above the socket head pipe plug, part #96. This looks like the transmission drain to me.

Good Luck

Where is the oil pan plug located on a 1999 Harley Ultra Classic Electra Glide?

No oil pan plug, it is a sump system. Just find the oil tank, drain it, change the filter.
