Metal in the primary oil


This is not uncommon on Harleys with high mileage or which have not been properly maintained. Change the primary oil, and verify that the primary chain is not loose or compromised. Change the primary oil again within 1000 miles or so, verifying that there is not an unusual amount of metal in the oil again. If there is, remove the primary cover entirely and replace any parts that are wearing unusually.

Need assistance on changing oil and primary. Warrenty is out and doing it myself.


The oil drain plug is on the bottom of the transmission as the oil tank is located there. Usually the drain plug is the one closest to the left front of the pan. Drain the oil, change the filter, and add fresh oil. To change the primary, locate the small pipe plug on the bottom of the primary directly below the derby cover and remove it. Drain the oil, remove the derby cover, and stand the bike straight up. Fill the primary with oil just until it comes up the bottom of the outer clutch drum. Do not overfill. To change the transmission lubricant, locate the pipe plug on the front of the oil pan on the bottom of the transmission. Drain the oil and refill though the plug and dipstick in the chrome release cover on the right side of the transmission. Add 20-24 ounces of oil.

Good luck

Just need to know how to change Engine, Transmission and Primary


There are two drain plugs on the bottom of the transmission. One is the engine oil and the other is the transmission. Drain the two oils from there. The primary oil drain is a small pipe plug underneath the lowest part of the primary drive cover.

The engine holds three quarts of oil, the transmission holds 20-24 ounces of oil, and the primary hold 36-42 ounces of oil. Fill the primary until the oil level is just to the bottom of the spring in the clutch assembly. If you get too much oil in the primary, the clutch will drag and you will be unable to find neutral with the engine running.

Good Luck

Not just changing oil, but is there gear oil to change, 1988 Harley 883 XL Sportster


Yes, there is oil in primary and transmission of your Sporty. To drain the oil, look for the drain plug on bottom of rear section of the primary area, back near the large round section of the primary. Drain the oil here and replace the plug. Add the oil at the top primary chain inspection port, large plug with a large "screwdriver" slot or two small bolts in it. Add 32-36 ounces of H-D "primary lubricant for Sportsters".

2006 harley davidson 1200 How do i change the oil


I think you can find the oil drain on the left side of the bike down low on the frame right behind the engine. It's a large diameter hose that plugs onto a stub on the frame. Some are located just below the battery tray and some are lower on the frame down by the rear of the primary case. Drain the oil, change the filter, refill with oil, and you're ready to go.

If you want to change the transmission oil/ primary oil, the drain is underneath the bottom of the primary at the very rear of the primary.

Three quarts of engine oil and a quart of primary/transmission oil.

Need information on the changing of engine, primary and transmission oils on 2006 883L sportster


Drain the oil tank by taking the hose loose that plugs onto the frame on the left side of the bike right behind the engine down low. Look underneath the engine and you see a small plug that screws into the primary cover from the bottom. This plug uses a Torx wrench to remove it.

Change the oil filter. This is a messy job as oil pours out of the filter as you unscrew it from the engine. Install the new filter and tighten. Add three quarts of oil to the oil tank of the engine and one quart of primary/transmission oil to the primary. The primary and transmission are lubricated by the same oil. I think the later model bikes came with Syn3 oil in both places.

Changing fluids


Trans plug is under the Primary cover ( Left side ) and the Oil line is under the frame on the left side. Look for a oil line with a plug attatched to it. Run the bike up to operating temp. Primary and trans are the same thing ( Sport Trans fluid ) 1Qt in the primary ( fill throught the little cover on the side of the primary, and fill the oil through the oil tank. Put a little oil in the filter too, before installing, this will give the motor a little bit of oil until the rest of it makes it way through. You'll also need 1 p/n 11105 for the drain plug on the primary.

2007 XL883 Oil Change


the sportster differs in that there are only 2 holes compared to the 3 on the softail. You drain the main oil via tube at the rear of the engine and the primary/trans with a bolt under the bike make sure you get the correct one as its close to the adjuster for the primary chain. you need 3qts for the motor with a new filter and 1qt for the primary/trans use the forumla+ or Spectro sporty heavy duty primary/trans in the primary and your choice in the motor. whilst your servicing it make sure all the motor mounts are tight and the fuel and oil lines are leak free and get the dielectric grease onto the fuse block and relays and adjust the primary chain
