EXACTLY??? Exactly??? I don't know EXACTLY. If I wanted to drain the oil, I would look on the bottom of the engine. Have you looked in that general vicinity?

How do i change the oil?

Details vary according to the model, but generally:
1. Run the motor long enough that the crankcase is warm.
2. Put the bike up on the center stand.
3. Put a plastic dish/bowl that will hold a few liters underneath the oil drain (usually a bolt on the bottom of the crankcase, check a manual for exact location. )
4. Using the correct wrench, loosen the oil drain.
5. With rubber gloves on, hold the bottom of the oil drain bolt with one hand while you remove the bolt from the bike with the other hand. If the bolt (which may be magentized) has bits of metal clining to it, remove these with a cloth or paper towel.
6. The oil will drain into the pan. Rock the bike back and forth gnetly to get the last few drops out.
7. Now locate the oil filter and remove it (check manual again for how to do this). Replace with fresh filter.
8. Replace oil drain bolt, tightening to correct setting.
9. Fill with fresh oil to the correct amount. Bike should be ready to go.
10. Put used oil into container with lid, have it recycled at a grage or auto service scentre.

I know how to change the oil but not sure how to check oil level??

Drain the oil, change the filter. Refill the system with the exact amount of oil stated by the manufacturer in the bike handbook. Some bikes have a window in the sump, with a level line, others have a dip stick system fixed to the filler plug. If it has non of these, before you drain the oil, dip the sump with a screw driver and make a mark on the screw driver at oil level, so at least you can get the oil level back to the same level before you drained it. (Use a long screw driver with a handle that won't go past the cap)

I put transmisson oil in the spot where the engine oil goes

Drain it and refill it with the proper oil. If you ran the bike with Formula + in the engine, change the filter also. I suggest you use Harley's Syn 3 oil. It can be used in all three cavities, primary, crankcase and transmission. If you make this mistake again, and are using Syn 3 it won't matter what oil goes where!

Wheres the oil drain plug oh 883?

The exact location of the oil drain on a Sportster depends on the year model. But, in general, the oil drain is a hose that is plugged onto the frame or a hose with a plug in it on the left side of the bike. It is somewhere, depending on year, between the bottom of the battery tray and bottom of the frame behind the rearmost end of the primary cover.

Good Luck

Need to know exactly which is the oil plug. Unable to find any diagrams.

if your looking under the bike your oil drain plug will be the one facing forward on the oil pan and it will take a 5/8" wrench to remove it, there is also an identical drain plug facing down that is for draining the transmission oil.

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

I'm having a problem with the oil level in my bike. I just did an oil change and I did exactly what the manual told me. I first warmed the oil by idling it, then I drained it. According to the manual, it...

Two didn't drain all the old oil out, or you didn't hold the bike in a straight upright position while checking the new oil. That is assuming you correctly interpreted the manual, and that you ran the bike for a few minutes before checking the oil level.
