Locating the oil plug on a 2005 HD

Look at the bottom of your oil tank from the right hand side of the bike. You should see a large pipe or hose running downwards towards the rear of the transmission along the frame. At the end of this pipe is a plug. Take the plug out to drain the oil.

Good Luck

Want to know how to change oil on my sportster

Ride the bike and warn the engine and oil up. Find the oil drain plug. Usually, it's hose large hose that is plugged onto a lug on the frame and has a clamp on it. They moved this lug around seems like every year in that time frame and I can't remember each year. Once you've located the drain hose, pull it off and drain the oil tank. What you doing that, remove and replace the oil filter. This can be particulary messy as the filter is on it's side and oil will run everywhere when you loosen the filter. Oil the gasket of the new filter, screw it on until it makes contact, and then go another 3/4 to 1 full turn. Reconnect the drain hose to it's lug and fill oil tank with three quarts of 20W50 Harley Davidson Syn3 oil and any oil of this viscosity that has a API rating of "CG" for use in diesel engines petroleum based or synthetic. Good Luck, Steve

How do i change my engune oil

Warm up the bike first. On Evolution Sportster's, be sure to change the filter the same time you change oil. The oil may be drained from the tank, by locating a blanked-off hose behind the transmission case, near the frame. Remove the plug and drain into a proper container. One problem with Sportster's (and other HD engines) is that some old oil is always left in the system. You can eject some of this by taking off the plug wires and cranking the engine to expel old oil back into the tank, and hence to drain line. Don't crank the engine more than 30 sec. to avoid damage. Never run engine W/O oil in the system. Recycle old motor oil !!

I have just got a 2005 883 hd sportster please tell me how many quarts of oil and the type of oil i need. How to drain and fill oil

The drain hose attaches to the frame at the bottom rear. Make sure the bike is at running temp before draining the oil. I use 20-50 mobile 1 full syn, 3 quarts. You must put 4 ozs in the filter to prime the system. After you drain the oil make sure you look in the oil tank before you refill it there is a tendency not to drain all of the old oil. If it dosen't all drain use a turkey baster to **** out as much of the old oil as you can. When you refill the tank you want the oil to come about midway between the lines on the dip stick. If you fill it to the top line you will get a lot of blow by out of your air filter.
