How to drain engine crankcase oil 2004 1200 sportster


Run the bike to get it to normal operating temperature. Put an thin oil pan on the ground under the center of the engine. Look for the little rubber hose coming from the bottom of the bike with a plastic plug in it and held in the hose with a clamp. Loosen the clamp and save to reuse if it is the screw type. Then pull the plug out and open up the oil fill cap on right side by the seat.

Where is the drain plug for the oil?


Look on the left side of the bike way down low on the frame. Behind the primary around the area where the swingarm attaches to the frame. There should be a tee fitting with a short piece of hose that looks like it connects to the frame.

Good Luck

Where is the drain plug on a 2000 1200 sportster


It's probably not a plug. Lood for a short hose on the left side of the bike down low back behind the primary cover. It looks like it plugged onto the frame. It will probably have a different hose clamp than the rest of the hose connections. Simply pull the hose off and the oil runs out of the tank.

Good luck

Where is the oil drain and how do you refill tranie fluid


The oil drain on your Sportster should be on left side of the bike below the battery around the rear of the primary case. It'll be a short piece of hose with a metal plug in it or a hose that appears to plug onto the frame. Simple pull the plug or take the hose loose and the oil tank will drain.

On the transmission, you remove the top inspection cover of the primary case to add the oil to it. The primary and the transmission share the same oil.

Good Luck

Were is the plug on a 2001 sportster 1200 xl custom to change the oil


On most Sportsters, there is a large diameter hose that either plugs onto a lug on the frame or that has a tee in the hose to drain the oil through. They are usually located on the left side of the bike just below the battery box or down low near the swing arm pivot. Most of the time they have one of those clamps that you use a pair of hose clamp pliers on. I hope this helps. Good Luck, Steve

Where is the drain plug located?


Look on the right side of your bike down under the battery. You should see a hose with a "spring clamp" on it. Squeeze the clamp and pull the hose off of the lug on the frame to drain your oil tank. Helps if the oil is warm.
