There is a hose between the down tubes at he rear of the frame that looks is attached to the frame, it looks like it is sending fluid into the frame. It isn't, it is a nibble to attach the drain line to.

We drained the oil on my 2001 harley sportster 1200 and when I put the new oil in it didnt seem to take that much before it almost overflowed. We then went to drain a little out and nothing comes out the...


No, you're probably draining the small amount of oil that was in the crankcase. All Harley-Davidson engines other than the V-Rod (which I know nothing about) use a "dry sump" oil system. This means that it does not carry it's oil in the crankcase like other motorcycles do. It carries it's oil in a remote oil tank much like a NASCAR racing car. The oil pump pumps oil from the tank to the engine. Once the oil settles to the bottom of the engine, the pump's scavenger stage pumps the oil back to the tank. The oil drain for your Sportster is a piece of hose that plugs onto the frame down low on the left side of the bike back behind the engine. It plugs on just below the pivot for the swing arm. Pull the hose off and the oil will drain.

Good Luck

Looking for the oil drain plug and the transmission drain plug on a 2001 Harley Davidson XL 1200 Custom


Usually the oil drain is one the left side of the bike somewhere below the battery. Look for a hose that has a plug in it or one that connects to the frame. Harley had moved this drain so many times in the past that it's difficult to keep up with where the oil drain is located. The transmission and primary share the same oil. To drain it, find the drain plug on the bottom of the primary just below the clutch. Pour the new oil in the primary chain inspection hole of the primary.

Good Luck

Does an 01 sportster 1200 have an oil bath. clutch.This persons tried to change his own oil pulled two different plugs one oil was clean one was was not. It has a hard time shifting now


Yes it does. It should take about a quart of oil in the primary. Some primary covers have an oil level indicator hole at the very back of the primary just bit above the lowest point. The drain plug is underneath the primary. If you have an "oil level plug", remove it and add oil until it comes out of the hole. If you can't find a level hole, drain the primary and refill with one quart of oil

I need to change the oil in my 2001 harley davidson sporster, i cant find the oil drain plug, for the engine oil, i found the oil drain plug for the crank case but not for the engine oil


It's on the left hand side just below the battery or just behind the primary cover of the engine in the rear. it's either a large diameter hose with a tee in it that has one hose plugged or a short section of hose that is plugged onto a large stud on the frame.

Were is the plug on a 2001 sportster 1200 xl custom to change the oil


On most Sportsters, there is a large diameter hose that either plugs onto a lug on the frame or that has a tee in the hose to drain the oil through. They are usually located on the left side of the bike just below the battery box or down low near the swing arm pivot. Most of the time they have one of those clamps that you use a pair of hose clamp pliers on. I hope this helps. Good Luck, Steve
