The choke is in the ecm. The mapping provides for a rich fuel mixture for starting and then it is leaned out after the engine is running and over time as the bike warms up etc. There is nothing like a manual choke on EFI engines.

It should have one (my 2005 fxd does) on the left side of the engine adjacent to the horn cover. it's not a true choke, but an enrichner circuit. it should stay out when you pull it and has to be pushed back in when finished.the reserve is built into the main tank is about a gallon and must be actuated by turning the fuel switch to reserve.(also on the left side of the engine where it exits from the rear bottom edge of the fuel tank.)

This bike is fuel injected, therefore no manual choke. Choke or fuel enrichment in fuel injected terms is controlled by the ECM in conjunction with the engine temperature sensor. There is no 'reserve', but you will get a 'low fuel' warning light when fuel is low, same as cars.

38-42 psi is recommended but many riders prefer a lower pressure for a smoother ride.

SOURCE: Repair manual for 2002 Harley Davidson Dyna Super

There are many service manuals available for your bike. Of course, the factory service manuals are the best and you should be able to order one at any local dealer.

If not, there are other sources for both the original Harley manuals and other manuals. Do a search on the internet for motorcycle service manuals. Two such places are www.motolit.com and www.motorcyclebooks.com A service manual should not be difficult to find.

SOURCE: Where is the transmission dipstick on a 1999

Look on the right side of the bike and you'll see a large plug that takes a 3/8' hex key to remove it. Check the transmission oil level with the bike standing straight up. Now, if you bought the bike used, some people change the dipstick to a knurled knob type dipstick so they can get it out with their fingers. It should be on the clutch release cover close to where the clutch cable goes into the transmission.

Ride Safe

Testimonial: "Was very helpful in helping me diagnose the issue. Found that the primary cover drain plug was not fully seated and so it leaked out most of the fluid"

I just bought a 2003 Super Glide and want to know where the "dipstick" to check the oil is located!


Since the oil tank for the engine is on the bottom of the transmission, the dipstick of the engine oil is on the large round cap where you add the oil to the tank on the right side of the bike on the corner of the transmission.

It has two marks on it, "Full Hot" and "Full Cold". Keep the oil level between the two marks. Do not overfill.

Good Luck

Where is the oil plug located on a 2005 Harley FXR?


I didn't think Harley made the FXR anymore. I thought they discontinued that bike in 1999 or so. But, just in case, the FXR's oil tank was under the seat. The drain was located at the bottom of the tank on the left side of the bike under the triangluar shaped frame insert.

Now if the bike is and FXD Dyna Super Glide, the oil tank is on the bottom of the transmission. Under the transmission, there are two drain plugs, one is located near the center of the oil pan and this is the transmission drain plug. The engine oil drain plug is located towards the left front of the oil pan. Drain the oil with the bike on the side stand.

To determine the exact model of your bike, search the Internet for the "Harley alphabet" You should be able to find a site that helps you decode your serial number (VIN#) to determine the exact model of your bike.

Good Luck
