Harley 883 sporster iol capacity

If you are talking about the oil you drain from the hose under the center of the engine and after changing the oil filter, about 3 1/2 quarts max, that's counting the 1/3 to 1/2 quart you put into the new filter before installing. I would start with 3 quarts in the oil tank, put back in and tighten dipstick, start up and run bike until it is warmed to normal operating temp and then shut down. Then with it on the jiffy stand unscrew your dipstick, wipe clean and reinstall stick tighten. Then remove stick again and check level. Ideally you want it about half way between the add and full line.

If you are talking about what they call the transmission oil, the one that you drain by removing the plug on the bottom of the left side cover. It takes 32 oz. and is checked having a friend sit on and hold the bike up straight and removing the cover over the clutch (the big round one on the right side of the left case cover) the oil lever when full should be just a hair above the bottom of the clutch gear.

Harley transmissions fluid check

To check the engine oil, there is a large knurled knob on the right rear corner of the transmission. This is the oil filler cap and it has a dipstick on it. The oil tank is on the bottom of the transmission. The dipstick has two marks on it. Check the oil with the bike on the stand. The upper mark represents "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Maintain the oil between these two lines. Do not over fill and do not "top it off" with the engine cold as this will cause the oil tank to be overfilled. As long as there is oil on the dipstick, ride the bike until it reaches operating temp and then check the oil.

To check the transmission lubricant, stand the bike as straight up as possible while ensuring it won't fall over. On the chrome cover on the right hand side of the transmission is a large plug that takes an Allen wrench or Hex key to remove. It has a dipstick on it with two marks on it as well. Maintain the oil level between the two marks. The transmission holds 20-24 ounces of oil.

On the primary, again stand the bike up straight. Remove the derby cover from the primary cover on the left side of the bike. The oil level should be just up to the bottom of the outer clutch basket. The capacity is 36-44 ounces of oil. Do not overfill. If you do, the clutch will drag and you will not be able to find neutral with the engine running.

I hope this helps.

Good Luck

Where is the dipstick??????

The engine oil dipstick should be right next to the engine coolant surge tank.
There is no dipstick for the transmission. (manual or automatic) The transmission must be checked by raising the vehicle on a hoist and removing the check plug.

How many quarts of fluid go in the primary, tranny, and case of my 2005 dana superglide

Your bike holds three quarts of oil with the filter change. The oil goes in the tank that is located on the bottom of your transmission. The oil cap is on the corner of the transmission and is a 2-inch round cap with a long dipstick on it. The dipstick is marked with two marks. The Upper mark is "FULL HOT" with the lower mark being "FULL COLD". Keep the oil level between the two marks and do not overfill.

The transmission holds 20-24 ounces of oil. The filler cap is on the clutch release cover on the right side of the bike behind the exhaust. It takes a 3/8" Allen or Hex key to remove the plug. It too has a dip stick. Check the transmisson oil with the bike standing straight up. The two marks on the stick are the same as on the oil dipstick. Do not overfill.

The primary holds 36-42 ounces of oil. To add oil, stand the bike straight up and remove the derby cover. Pour the oil directly into this hole. You'll notice that the outer clutch basket is made of bright aluminum. The darker flat metal piece just inside of this is the clutch spring. Fill the oil NO HIGHER than the lowest point on this spring. If you do, the clutch will drag and you will not be able to find neutral with the engine running.

Good Luck

I want to check the engine oil level for previa 2.4 petrol 1995

OIL LEVEL CHECK Every time you stop for fuel, check the engine oil as follows:
  1. Park the vehicle on level ground.
  2. When checking the oil level it is best for the engine to be at operating temperature, although checking the oil immediately after a stopping will lead to a false reading. Wait a few minutes after turning off the engine to allow the oil to drain back into the crankcase.
  3. Open the hood and inspect the level of the engine oil tank. The fluid level on the tank should read between FULL or F and LOW or L.
  4. If the level is below the LOW or L line, remove the cap and add enough engine oil to reach the FULL or F line. Fig. 1: Fill the engine oil tank located under the hood first 90911p07.jpg
  5. Install the oil cap and hand tighten.
  6. After filling the oil tank, remove the engine access hole cover on the drivers side. Fig. 2: Make sure the oil tank is to the F mark 90911p15.jpg Fig. 3: The oil dipstick is located under the driver's side engine access hole cover 90911p83.jpg Fig. 4: Place your finger through the hole and pull straight up to remove 90911p84.jpg
  7. Remove the engine oil dipstick and wipe it clean.
  8. Reinsert the dipstick, push it in as far as it will go, the pull it out and look at the level on the end.
  9. If necessary, insert more oil through the oil filler cap next to the dipstick, this will completely top off the system. Fig. 5: The oil dipstick has two markings for level check 90911p85.jpg Fig. 6: To fill the crankcase, remove the engine oil filler cap 90911p86.jpg prev.gif next.gif

How much oil does a 2003 softail duece take? Also how much does the transmission and primary take as well?

To the best of my knowledge, your Duece takes three quarts of oil with a filter change. The transmission holds 20-24 ounces of oil. And, your primary takes 38-44 ounces of oil.

Your oil tank has a dipstick in it. Fill the oil tank until the level is just above the lower line with the bike on the stand. The lower line is "FULL COLD" and the upper line is "FULL HOT". Do not overfill.

The transmission is the same way, On the right side clutch release cover, there's a plug that takes a 3/8" Allen or Hex key to remove. It too has a dipstick marked the same way the oil tank dipstick is marked. Check the oil in the transmission with the bike standing straight up.

In the primary, you fill the oil level to where it just touches the lowest part of the clutch spring. The outer clutch housing is bright aluminum. Inside this is a round dark colored piece of metal. This is the clutch spring. Fill or check the oil with the bike standing straight up. Do not overfill as it will make your clutch drag and you will not be able to find neutral with the engine running.

Good Luck

Fluid levels. all

Enigne oil - The dipstick is on the corner of the transmission as the oil tank is on the bottom of the transmission. The dipstick has two marks on it. The upper mark is "FULL HOT", and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Keep the oil level between the two marks when you check the oil with the bike on the sidestand.

Primary - Remove the derby cover and stand the bike straight up. The out cluch basket is made out of bright aluminum. Just inside is a dark colored round piece of metal. This is the clutch spring. The oil should be just to the bottom of this spring at it's lowest point. Do not overfill as it will cause the clutch to drag.

Transmission - On the right hand side of the bike on the end of the transmission is the clutch release mechanism. It is just behind the exhaust pipes and the clutch cable runs into it. On top of this cover, there's a plug that takes a 3/8" Allen or hex key to remove. Remove the plug and there's a dipstick on it. Keep the oil level between the two lines. Check the fluid level with the bike standing straight up.

Good Luck

Gear box and crankcase oil amounts

You have THREE oil 'compartments' on your particular year&model bike.

---( which holds 3 to 3.5 quarts or liters of oil).
---On the right side of the bike, and at the rear of the ENGINE OIL TANK, you should notice a Hose that is connected to the oil tank. Follow that Hose downward.
The other end of that hose will either :

----A: Be connected to the bottom of the frame,
----B: Have a Metal Plug in the end of the hose. That 'plug' will be held in the hose via a hose clamp, and also will be secured to the frame via a 'clip' that is actually part of the frame).

-- IF(A): the Hose leads from the tank and is attached to the frame, you will notice a hex-head plug (that also has a hex-cutout in it's center for insertion of a hex or allen key) underneath the part of the frame that the hose is attached to. Remove/Unscrew that Hexplug from the frame to drain the engine oil.

--IF(B): the hose that leads from the Oil Tank has a "HosePlug" that is inserted into the end of the hose, remove that plug to drain the engine oil.

*Removal of the Enging Oil DIPSTICK, located at the mouth/fill area at the top of the Tank will aid in a faster flow of oil from the tank. When done draining, re-install the drain plug.

-When changing the engine oil, also remove and install a new Oil Filter.

*Put in no more than 3 quarts/liters of oil into the Engine Oil Tank.
*Ride your bike for min. of 10 minuets, then park and shut down the engine, wait for about 2 minuets, and check the level via the Dipstick. Proper oil level will be at or just below the 'FULL' mark of the dipstick.


On the right side of the motorcycle, the
TRANSMISSION OIL FILLER PLUG/DIPSTICK is located on the foward facing side of the Transmission End Cover. The Trans End Cover is the cover that the Clutch Cable goes into. The Trans Fill/Dipstick has a Hex/Allen cutout in it for insertion of a hex/allen key to remove it.

The Trans DRAIN PLUG is either located either:
A: -Located on the Transmission Case, JUST BELOW the Trans End Cover. If here, the "Drain Plug" will be a TORX fastener. Remove that Torx fastener to drain the Trans Oil.
B: -Located UNDERNEATH the Trans Case, in between the two Shock Absorbers. If here, the 'Drain Plug" will be a HexPlug that is the same type drain plug as described earlier for the engine drain.

** 600 ml. for a 5-speed transmission.
** One Full Quart/Liter for a 6-speed Transmission.

******Use the Trans Dipstick to verify that the level is correct. Between the FULL and ADD mark, or at the FULL mark.

ALSO NOTE: Drain, and Check your Oil when the bike is level. Have a friend assist you if needed. You don't want the bike falling, and/or landing on you.


Located on the LEFT SIDE of motorcycle, the PRIMARY HOUSING connects the Engine Crankshaft TO the Transmission Output Shaft via a Primary Chain, which is lubricated by an oil bath.

(Make sure the Engine Run/Stop Switch is in the STOP or OFF position).

Remove the DERBY COVER (the Large round cover, with 5 Torx Fasteners. With the bike level, you should note that the oil level come to approx. just past the bottom of the Clutch Basket.

The Primary DRAIN PLUG is located: either at the

(A) Left Face of the Outer Primary Cover, below the Derby Cover.
If so, it will be a TORX or HEX/ALLEN fastener. It is NOT the same as the Hex/Allen fasteners that surround the Outer Primary Cover securing it to the Inner Primary Cover.


(B) Located UNDERNEATH and ON the Outer Primary Cover, just below the Derby Cover area. It will either be a HEX FASTENER, or a Torx Fastener.

-Remove the Drain Plug to drain the Primary Oil.
-Reinstall the drain plug and fill (thru the Derby Cover Area) with ONE QUART/LITER of PRIMARY OIL.

****** BE SURE to clean and coat the threads of each Drain Plug with Teflon Paste thread sealant. NOT THREAD LOCKER.


If you are unclear of anything I wrote, please dont' hesitate to get in touch with me through here.
Good Luck , and THANK YOU.
