Question about 2008 Harley Davidson FXDL Dyna Low Rider
I drained to primary chain oil and very little came out. Where to I add new oil. The HD manual says it goes in the small dust cover on the rt side but its blocked off under the plate
Pull the derby cover off. Make sure bike is upright . Pour fluid in until its level is just above the bottom of the clutch pack in the primary cover

the spring and nut they talk about isnt behind the little cover , this little cover is for adjusting the primary chain only , the nut your after is behind the big cover (derbi cover).
hope this helps mate anything else you need to know let me know .

Spray it off at the car wash to remove all the oil , then spray Right Guard (Yes, that Right Guard) on the area of the leak. It will show up, but you may not be able to see exactly where. There are a couple spots where it can leak. The jackshaft oil seal, as you said, transmission output shaft (clutch shaft) on the trans itself, the inner primary seal where the trans shaft runs thru, the engine sprocket shaft oil seal, inner primary O-ring, the bolts that hold the inner primary to the engine/trans, the primary chaincase gasket and the drain plug. Hopefully when you get it apart, you will see which seal is leaking. If not, replace them all. Still want to fix the leak? LOL

you do not need to open the cover/dynamo yet,and donot replace the light coil yet.Letting you know,a motorcycle have 3 lines,the primary coil which supplies the ignition through the sparkplug; the secondary which supplies the headlight & the rectifier diode through the batery.
Now,look at any color of wire from the dynamo except black.( becos black is mostly common color from the primary coil.) ...second,look for the recifier diode( usually attached to the chassis or body of the motorcycle.)and check the wire attached on it..(the one wire is from the dynamo & the other one directly goes to the batery).test the wire from the dynamo if it has a power coming from it.If,there is a power from it then the secondary coil need not to be replaced..The next thing you must do is this:
if your batery does not charge,check first the rectifier diode or known as "charger" if it is shorted..You can check it by simply let the two terminals of the said diode to be switched or to swap each others socket..after doing this,while the motorcycle is working or firing,check the one wire of the diode which suppose to go through the batery if it has a power..if it has,it is surely the problem is in your diode or charger.you need to replace it
becos the use of the diode/charger is just a one way of passing electricity.,that when a power from a dynamo will go to the batery, it will not go back the said power from the batery itself to the said dynamo, and thats why batery draining will not happen..
i hope that i can help.send me a message if you still have a question..

Testimonial: "thanks odelle firt you said to check the rectifier diode does the rectifier diode have only one wire comming from it.is voltage regultor the diode"
Fill through the clutch inspection cover to the bottom of the clutch basket to be sure, but 32oz is the right amount for your model year.

Isn't there a big nut in the middle of the clutch pack? Also I am not sure, it might be a left-handed one, check the threads first.
