You only oil it if it is the oil-able type and you have washed it and dried it properlyu and then you use a filter spray oil and sparay enough oil on it to cover the surface but not so much thatit will drip off when in service.

SOURCE: oil drain plug

Hi
It is located on the right side just under the oil tank ; if you follow the rudder hose that exits the rear right side of your oil tank it leads to the bottom of the frame under this is the oil plug. This hose has a plug clamped to the end of it or stuck into a prug that is welded to the frame.
After this unclamp and pull the plug to make sure that you have the dipstick out before pulling it loose.

Please do rate the solution as "FixYa" if found useful and revert for further assistance.
Thanks Rylee

SOURCE: What is the correct air

Correct tire pressure - 30 PSI in the front
36 PSI rear single rider
40 PSI rear two up riding

Always refer to the side wall of the tire for air pressure. You may not be running Dunlop tires.

I doubt you're going to find a video of the oil being changed on a Softail. To change the oil on your Softail, look at the oil tank from the right side of the bike. At the lowest point on the backside of the tank, you'll see a large hose coming from the tank and running down behind the transmission. The hose comes back out from behind everything at the lower part of the frame behind the exhaust pipe and looks like it connects to a crossmember of the frame at the bottom. Feel underneath the crossmember directly underneath the hose and you'll feel a drain plug. Remove the plug and the oil drains out of the tank.

Good Luck
Steve

What oil filter and air filter do you recommend for my harley 2005 flstn. How much oil goes in the motor, primary, and tranny


I use nothing but OEM oil filters and I've installed a K&N cleanable air filter in all of my personal bikes and many of my customer's bikes over the years. You can't go wrong that way.

You Softail should hold three quarts of 20W50 synthetic oil in the oil tank. The transmission hold 20-24 ounces of the same oil and the primary holds 38-42 ounces of the same oil. Harley's oil is the Syn3 oil that it sells. You can use speciality oil in your bike as well. Some of the more popular brands are Amsoil, Royal Purple, RevTech, Mobil, Redline, and Golden Spectro. They are pricey and you need to go the company's website and check for the proper recommendations of their oil.

On the primary, I always stand the bike up and pour the oil in through the derby cover. If you look at the clutch assembly, you'll see that the outer hub is made of shiny aluminum. Just inside this there is a dark colored flat looking metal piece that is actually the clutch spring. Fill the oil no higher than the lowest point on this spring. If you fill it further, the clutch will drag.

As for the engine and the transmission, they each have a dipstick. The sticks have two marks on them. The top mark is "FULL HOT", and the lower mark is 'FULL COLD", Keep the oil level between these two marks. Never overfill.

Good Luck
Steve
