They should still be fine, but if you are changing them, why not get the nice stainless steal sock ones, they look great and protect the rubber from foreign object damage.

1996 sportster oil tank has 3 hose fitting the 1984 got 4 fitting how do you hook up hose ? from 84 to 96


Hi, Onebob yesterday I sent you a free service manual that covered both oil line routing systems but I guess that wasn't good enough and since we are thousands of miles apart I can't hold your hand to open the manual the best I can do is tell you that your Sportster oil tanks have:
1. Feed line from the bottom of the oil tank to the oil pump 3/8"
2. Return line from the oil pump to the top of the oil tank 3/8"
3. Vent line from the top of the oil tank to the gearcase 5/16"
If you have an aftermarket oil tank with 4 ******* I can't help you. You will need to do some R&D on your own.
You are welcomed to send me photo's of your tanks so I may be enlightened to your dilemma. xlch@mail.com
Good luck and have a wonderful day.

Engine oil cooler line leaking. Is it easier to bypass the cooler or replace?


its best to replace the oil cooler lines.this should have the lines that run from the radiator to the oil filter housing and when you replace the line you will get both lines as they are made be replaced together.bypassing the line is hard to do takes more time and will leak as you can`t get it to seal properly.

I just bought 01 sportster 1200 and the oil tank is filled with light brown milky oil that smells like gas 1st harley help please


Light brown milky oil that smells like gas is not good. Drain the oil from the tank and refill it with three quarts of fresh oil. Remove the oil filter and take the spark plugs out of the engine. Using the starter spin the engine over for about 20 seconds without the new filter on the engine. Then wait about five minutes and do it again. The reason for the short spin time and the longer wait is that you don't want to burn up your starter. Keep doing this until you get fresh clean oil coming out of the engine. Put the new filter on and replace the spark plugs. Now,top off the oil tank to the lower line on the dipstick with the bike on it's side stand. The lower line on the stick is "FULL COLD" and the upper line is "FULL HOT". Do not overfill or you'll wind up with a mess. Then fire the engine and let it run for a while. Then turn the engine off and let it sit. If you look in the oil tank immediately after shutting the engine down, the oil will look light brown due to the foaming on top of the oil. Allow the foam to disapate and it should look good.

Now, if gasoline contaminated your engine oil, it may have contaminated your primary oil as well. I'd change that too. Drain the oil and add one quart of specified type of oil.

Good Luck
Steve
