Whatever fluid you changed, it wasn't the engine oil. The transmission and primary chaincase both hold about a quart. Looks like you have a job to finish. If you want to do minor service yourself BUY AN OWNER'S MANUAL!!! They are only $20 from a dealer.

Hello there. Great bike!! Here are the specs for the 09 fat boy http://www.harley-davidson.com/wcm/Content/Pages/Specs/full_specs/full_specs_09_popup.jsp?locale=en_US&dwp=false&market=US&family=so&model=flstf&bmLocale=en_US

you will see that the oil capacity is 3.5 quarts. Did you change the oil filter also? If no, that is where some of the old oil is still lurking. just check the oil level frequently to be sure you aren't running it low on oil.

No problem just want to ask if the 2004 fatboy takes 4 quarts of oil with a filter change. Thanks Max


Three quarts. It's got a dipstick in the tank. There are two marks on the stick. The upper mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Check the oil level with it on the side stand. Keep the oil between the two marks and do not overfill.

Good Luck

Hello I have a 1999 Harley Fatboy and I need to know if the same three Oil Compartments explained by the CycleSurgeon apply to my 99 as well. Also, the dealership sold me a high grade synthetic oil and...


Yes, your '99 Fatboy, has the last of the Evo engines in it. They didn't come out with the Twin Cam 88 B engine until 2000. Still, you have three oil compartments, the engine, the primary, and the transmission.

And yes, you can run the H-D Syn3 oil in all three compartments. The engine holds three quarts, the primary holds about a quart (fill to the bottom of the outer clutch drum), and the transmission uses 20-24 ounces.

I hope this answers your questions.

Engine noise


The valves are hydrolic and shouldn't need adjusting. Make sure you have the right weight oil, and the rite amount. If there is still noise, try changing your oil and sub. a quart of lucas oil stabilizer for a quart of oil. If the problem is a stuck lifter, the lucas will probly free it up.
