Remove the outer primary cover on left side. Don't forget to drain the oil first. Using a large pair of snap ring pliers, remove the clutch adjuster plate from center of clutch assembly. Remove compensator sprocket nut (very tight) and the clutch hub nut (left handed threads) and remove nut from bolt on primary chain adjuster. Grab the compensator sprocket and clutch assembly and lift out of inner primary.

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

Hi, you can check out the clutch switch and the kick stand switch. They are also factors to consider when fuel pump does not prime..

2000 FXSTD Softail Duece: Clutch is engaging too late almost at the full out...

The clutch is most likey improperly set. What needs to be done is the clutch cover taken off, loose the cable adjuster backed way off and then set the clutch rod first by taking up all the end play and then turning out screw 1/2 turn, hold screw and tighten lock nut. The cable can now be adjusted so there is about 1/2" free play at the end of the lever

I have a 2001 softail duece, fuel injected that idles too high.

If it's fuel injected, the dealer will have to set the idle speed for you unless you have another type of computer on the bike.
