What oil would i use for my 2000 softail duece


Hi Anonymous, depends on the average temperature you expect to be riding in untill your next oil change. Contact your local dealer for advice. HD makes several different grades of oil. If you elect to run HD 20w50 SYN 3, which I highly recomend, then it does not matter what temperature you are going to ride in. As an added bonus they call it SYN 3 because you can run 20w50 in your engine, transmission and primary and it comes in a single container to change all 3. No longer do have to purchase 3 different types of oil for your Harley. Great stuff

What weight oil should I use in my 2003 softail duece 5 speed transmission ?


Your bike came from the factory with H-D Syn 3 synthetic 20W50 engine oil in the engine, primary case, and the transmission. There are other brands of oil that are satisfactory to use in your engine. Amsoil, Royal Purple, Mobil V-twin, just to name a few. Check on their website for compatibility.


Good Luck
Steve

I'm changing the oil on my 04 Duece, removed the cap, changed the filter, removed the plug and only a small amount of oil came out? Still have oil in the tanks? Why is it not draining?


because its a dry sump. you have to drain the oil from the oil tank. Theres a hose under the tank. I dont know where the drain hose is on a duece, you'll have to look around
