You should drain it off if you run it with water it will turn milky once you drain it you can put oil in a clear clean soda bottle let it sit and the water will seperate if it settles to the bottom you can syphon off the water by putting small hose down to water and start syphoning untill oil comes out pull out hose and you should be left with only oil good luck or throw out and use new if you are rich lol :)

SOURCE: changing oil on 2003 electra glide

I don't blame you for wanting to do this yourself. Be sure to use a harley filter and harley oil.

Drain the oil, replace o ring on drain plug, replace drain plug, remove oil filter, fill oil filter with 20/50 harley davidson oil and replace filter being careful not to overtighten, fill oil tank with the bike upright to the fill line on the dipstick. Take the bike for a short ride and check the fluid level while warm.

SOURCE: replaced clutch, oil, cables...1998 electra glide

Make sure you do not overfill the primary. when putting the oil in the primary, have the bikes standing as straight up as possible. Add oil only until it comes to the bottom of the clutch spring. If you put too much oil in the primary, the oil will get in between the plates when the clutch is released and act like the oil in a automatic transmission torque converter. It will continue to drive just enough so that you cannot find neutral with the engine running.

Otherwise, you must make sure all clutch adjustments are correct. Loosen clutch cable all the way. Adjust clutch release adjuster behind derby cover, all the way in and back off one half to one complete turn, readjust cable for 1/8" freeplay.

SOURCE: no oil pressure for my 2005 Harley-Davidson Ultra

camplate check valve sticking,good time for an upgrade SEcamplate,hydraulic camchain tensioners,high volume oil pump,comes as complete kit for about $420. add another $150 for adjustable pushrods and never worry about it again,or replace the existing component youd save maybe $180 bucks but youll be back
thats why they changed the camplate and tensioners in 07, I just did the complete conversion on an 02 heritage it costed with labor about 1100 in your case your looking at 7 to 800 dollars just to get you going for another 30 or 40,000 miles or less and then do it again Im for a 1 time fix myself

SOURCE: I have a 92 electra glide motorcycle, after

You can test it by applying voltage directly from the battery to the starter where the green wire is connected. If this causes the starter to engage, then adding a relay will probably solve your problem..Also, if your glide is equipped with a clutch safety switch, check that. You can can do that by bypassing it to test. I'm not sure if the 92 had it or not, but thought i would mention it because i have seen that be the problem before. Of course, make sure your "run" switch is in the run position---Hope this helps.

NEED TO KNOW HOW TO CHANGE ALL OILS 2005 Electra glied classes harley


The oil tank is on the bottom of the transmission. The engine oil drain plug is on the left front corner of the oil tank. Drain the oil, change the oil filter, and refill with three quarts of any approved 20W50 weight engine oil. Check the oil level using the dip stick. The dip stick is located on the right side of the transmission. The oil cap is a large cap (2" or 50mm in diameter) with knurled edges on it. The dipstich has two marks on it. The top mark is 'FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Keep the oil level between these two marks. Check the oil level with the bike on the side stand.

Good Luck
Steve

Where is drain


The Electra glide bikes usually have the oil tank on the bottom of the transmission. On the bottom of the oil, there are two drain plugs. The one in the center is the transmission drain. The one on the left side a bit forward is the oil drain.
