Hi Anonymous, depends on the average temperature you expect to be riding in untill your next oil change. Contact your local dealer for advice. HD makes several different grades of oil. If you elect to run HD 20w50 SYN 3, which I highly recomend, then it does not matter what temperature you are going to ride in. As an added bonus they call it SYN 3 because you can run 20w50 in your engine, transmission and primary and it comes in a single container to change all 3. No longer do have to purchase 3 different types of oil for your Harley. Great stuff

SOURCE: were is the plug on a 2001 sportster 1200 xl

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

What oil do i use for a 99 1200xl sportster


You can use one or the other. If you use regular oil, Harley 20w50 goes in the oil tank and Formula + goes in the primary. If you use synthetic (Harley Syn 3) the same oil goes in both oil tank and primary.

Looking for the oil drain plug and the transmission drain plug on a 2001 Harley Davidson XL 1200 Custom


Usually the oil drain is one the left side of the bike somewhere below the battery. Look for a hose that has a plug in it or one that connects to the frame. Harley had moved this drain so many times in the past that it's difficult to keep up with where the oil drain is located. The transmission and primary share the same oil. To drain it, find the drain plug on the bottom of the primary just below the clutch. Pour the new oil in the primary chain inspection hole of the primary.

Good Luck

Does an 01 sportster 1200 have an oil bath. clutch.This persons tried to change his own oil pulled two different plugs one oil was clean one was was not. It has a hard time shifting now


Yes it does. It should take about a quart of oil in the primary. Some primary covers have an oil level indicator hole at the very back of the primary just bit above the lowest point. The drain plug is underneath the primary. If you have an "oil level plug", remove it and add oil until it comes out of the hole. If you can't find a level hole, drain the primary and refill with one quart of oil

Is there a certain brand or weight of oil I should be using in my 06 sporster 1200 custom?


20w/50 synthetic

04-up is 3 qts.

Drain oil hot, r&r filter, put in oil,........let a couple ounces drain out of the hose to bleed the air out to prevent cavitation inside the oil pump.... run engine about 10 minutes, shut off & let sit for about 2 minutes. Check oil level with bike upright, oil should be at top mark on dipstick, fill as needed.

Don't forget about the Primary Oil...1 qt.

Also remember, there is WAY more to maintaining your bike than just an oil change, belt tension, throttle cable lube and adjustment, clutch adjustment, clutch cable lube and adjustment, primary chain adjustment, brake inpsection, tire pressures, fork oil every 10k miles, steering neck bearing lube and adjustment every 10k miles, etc.
