SOURCE: Tonight I drained 4 plugs on my 2004 FXST.

You must be referring to the engine oil that resides in the motor, as opposed to that which is stored in the oil resevoir (frame). I can't think of a bike without a drain on the engine, with or without additional storage in the frame/tank.

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!

I'm not real sure where this plug is that your talking about but I think it's a plug to drain the oil from the cam chest when you're working in that area. A Harley engine is a dry sump engine. This means that it pumps the oil into the engine which lubricates everything and then the oil is pumped back out into a remote tank. It does not carry oil in the engine. However is does have oil in the primary case and the transmission. As long as you didn't drain either of these, you should be fine. Just fill the oil tank with oil and start the engine. Let it run for a few minutes and then shut it down and recheck the oil level. Check the oil with the bike on the side stand. The upper mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is 'FULL COLD". As long as the oil level is between these two lines, do not add oil to the tank. Do not overfill. Go to http://www.bikebandit for a view of your engine.

Good Luck

Where is the oil drain plug on a 2008 harley fat bob

1) Drain plug for crank drain, is on the left side of the oil bag.
About a half a cup of oil, always stays at the bottom of the crankcase. (Dry sump. Keeps the crank from having to thrash a bunch of oil around )

2) Primary Cover is on the bottom, just under the derby cover. (Cover at back of Primary Cover )

3) ****** drain plug is on the same side as the fill plug.

Change the O-rings too. Help keep that baby from making 'spots'.

Can u please tell me where the oil drain plug is on my 04 harley super glide?? thank u

Engine, primary, or transmission? Primary case drain is on the left side at rear lower part of primary case. Can be an allen or a star nut. Transmission drain is on the right side, under transmission. Engine will also be on right side just forward of the transmission drain, a little left or right. Also some H-D's have a drain hose from the oil tank that has a plug in it. If it has one of these, it will be hanging on the right side of the bike back by the tank.

What size & type of bolt do I remove from under the primary to drain the primary oil?

There is a pipe plug that takes a Torx wrench to remove on the very bottom of the primary cover near the rear end of it. Once the oil is drained remove the derby cover and refill the primary. Fill right to the lowest edge of the clutch spring with the bike standing straight up. If you get too much oil in the primary, the clutch will feel like it's dragging and you won't be able to find neutral with the bike sitting still and the engine running. Good luck, Steve

Where is the oil plug located on a 2005 Harley FXR?

I didn't think Harley made the FXR anymore. I thought they discontinued that bike in 1999 or so. But, just in case, the FXR's oil tank was under the seat. The drain was located at the bottom of the tank on the left side of the bike under the triangluar shaped frame insert.

Now if the bike is and FXD Dyna Super Glide, the oil tank is on the bottom of the transmission. Under the transmission, there are two drain plugs, one is located near the center of the oil pan and this is the transmission drain plug. The engine oil drain plug is located towards the left front of the oil pan. Drain the oil with the bike on the side stand.

To determine the exact model of your bike, search the Internet for the "Harley alphabet" You should be able to find a site that helps you decode your serial number (VIN#) to determine the exact model of your bike.

Good Luck

Look on the bottom of the transmission, there are two drain plugs. The one in the center is the transmission drain plug and the one on the left side near the front of the oil pan is the engine oil drain.

On the primary side, look on the bottom of the primary cover near the rear end below the derby cover. There's a small "pipe plug" there to drain the oil with.

Engine oil is three quarts with filter.
Transmission is 20-24 ounces
Primary is 36 ounces of oil or fill to bottom of clutch spring with bike standing straight up, do not overfill or your clutch will drag.

Harley-Davidson Syn3 20W50 synthetic oil or all three compartments.

Wondering does the primary chain get

The primary on all late model bikes (1985 and later) are known as "wet primaries" because they have their own lube in them. The newer bikes like yours came with H-D's Syn3 20W50 oil in the primary.

To change the oil, stand the bike up as straight as safely possible. Remove the derby cover. You'll see the clutch assembly. Notice the outer clutch drum is made of aluminum. Inside that is a black disc. This is the clutch diaphragm spring.

To drain the primary, remove the drain plug at the rear of the primary on the bottom. Replace the drain plug and refill the primary with oil until it's just to the bottom of this diaphragm spring. Usually 38-44 ounces. Do not overfill as too much oil will make your clutch drag.
