I have one for an '84 model. About the only difference is the 84 model had an alternator instead of a generator. Other than that, it's about the same. contact me at email@example.com. I'll try to scan a copy from my service manual and shoot it to you.

All Harley recommends is their Transmission and Primary Lubricant for Sportsters. Now, what weight it is or any additives for the clutch that may be in it is Harley's secret. Also, the "viscosity" rating for gear lube and engine oils are different and I'm not sure how they relate to each other. I've seen advertisements for a 75W90 lubricant for V-Twin transmissions but I'm not sure if that works for the Sportster since the transmission and the primary (which includes the clutch) are lubricated by the same lubricant.
I would think that you would want a lubricant that would have a "high pressure additive" or "anti-shear" additive in it. When you look on the container, you'll see an API code in a round circle. Most of todays oil only carry one rating for use in gasoline engines. Usually it's as "SH" or "SJ". You need an oil that is rated for use in diesel engines to get the additives that I've just talked about. The rating on the container will read something like "SH/CG4", the CG4 rating being for diesel engine use.
Unless you are in an area where the availability of oils is limited, I'd opt for the H-D oil or one of the oils packaged by someone like "Motor Factory" or "Revco". You may find a recommendation by going to some of the oil companies like Shell, Mobil, or Sunoco.

SOURCE: What is the size of
The chain size is a #530. Now the number of links varies depending on the size of the sprockets you have on the bike. Mark on of the links with "White Out" correction fluid and count the number of links you in the chain.

A Harley-Davidson engine is a dry sump type engine. It carries it's oil in a remote tank rather in an oil pan on the engine. It has a pump that pumps the oil from the tank into the engine. There are two paths that the oil takes, one to the tappets to lubricate them and one to the end of the pinion side of the crankshaft, through the gearcase cover. The oil, once it's lubricated the parts, is returned to the gearcase cover by the use of crankcase pressure and the oil pump scavenges the oil out of that cavity. It is pumped to the oil filter and from there back to the tank. The piston skirts and the crankshaft case bearings are lubricated with an oil mist generated by the moving crankshaft. I hope this answers your question.
