Question about 2003 Harley Davidson FLSTF Fat boy
Posted by Anonymous on
It is not a second oil drain, the only oil drain is from the oil tank at the rear . DO NOT touch the front one you are talking about.

Your oil pan where you normally drain the oil when changing it IS the crankcase. I would also drain any gas from the fuel tank(s) and put fresh gas in it, and you will probably need a new battery.

You must be referring to the engine oil that resides in the motor, as opposed to that which is stored in the oil resevoir (frame). I can't think of a bike without a drain on the engine, with or without additional storage in the frame/tank.

I'm not that familiar with the Twin Cam engine but from what you're saying, Harley has a drain or something in the cam chest of the Twin Cam engine. This is something new for Harley as the previous engines had no means of draining the cam chest. I would imagine that this is what the oil you saw was, oil in the cam chest waiting to be pumped back to the oil tank by the oil pump that is located in the cam chest. When you restart the engine, this area will again fill itself to the proper level.

On your Ultra, the oil pan is on the bottom of the transmission. If you pull the oil dipstick, you'll see that it goes down into the pan located under the transmission. The engine oil drain is the drain plug nearest the left front of the pan or in the middle of the pan. If the bike is on the side stand when your drain the oil, I'd pull the plug in the front so that all the oil comes out. If you pull the one in the middle, you must stand the bike up straight to get all the oil out. The transmission drain appears to be the pipe plug in the front of the oil pan. Go to www.bikebandit.com and pull up this drawing. It will show you the pan and the gasket. Notice the gasket closely, the hole down through the front of the pan looks like it goes to the transmission and the other plugs look like they are for engine oil. The plug you pulled out is the drain for the cam chest, I think. I'm not a Twin Cam mechanic but I'm pretty sure that I'm right about that particular plug. You probably didn't get any more than a couple of ounces of oil out of that area.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
Oil spilled out on the bolt you removed? Hope to know more. It can be just a pan bolt that secures the oil pan. Just put it back and don't you worry. It will not harm your bike.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
