Clutch cable housing is dripping oil

Hi Rocky, if it is leaking at the point of entry into the transmission side cover you can replace an o-ring that seals the threads, any place else the cable is leaking can not be repaired and must be replaced. Good luck.

Where are the filler holes for ****** & primary located on a 2005 Elec. Glide Standard

The "filler hole" for the primary is the derby cover. Remove the derby cover, stand the bike straight up and pour the oil in until the level is at the bottom of the outer clutch shell. The "filler hole" for the transmission is on the right side chrome cover where the clutch cable goes in. There should be a large plug that takes a hex key or Allen wrench to remove the plug. The oil level should be between the lines with the bike standing straight up.

Good Luck

How to stop oil leak from clutch cable

If the oil is leaking out of the clutch cable, you must replace the clutch cable. The cable has a seal in the end of it that is supposed to keep the oil from getting into the cable. If the seal is bad, there is no way to dix it and the cable has to be replaced. If the oil is leaking where the cable goes into the transmission, there is an o-ring aound the threaded end of the cable that could be bad. It depends on whether the oil is coming out of the cable or around the cable.

Good Luck

I have a 2005 electra glide standard how much oil does the transmission and the primary chaincase take

The transmission usually holds 20-24 ounces of H-D Syn3 20W50 oil.

The primary usually holds 36-44 ounces of the same. The best way to fill the primary is to stand the bike up straight and fill the primary until the oil just barely comes to the lower edge of the clutch spring. If you get too much oil in the primary, the clutch will drag and make finding neutral impossible with the engine running.

Good Luck

Replaced clutch, oil, cables...1998 electra glide is hard to get into neutral once it is warmed up..

Make sure you do not overfill the primary. when putting the oil in the primary, have the bikes standing as straight up as possible. Add oil only until it comes to the bottom of the clutch spring. If you put too much oil in the primary, the oil will get in between the plates when the clutch is released and act like the oil in a automatic transmission torque converter. It will continue to drive just enough so that you cannot find neutral with the engine running.

Otherwise, you must make sure all clutch adjustments are correct. Loosen clutch cable all the way. Adjust clutch release adjuster behind derby cover, all the way in and back off one half to one complete turn, readjust cable for 1/8" freeplay.

Where is drain

The Electra glide bikes usually have the oil tank on the bottom of the transmission. On the bottom of the oil, there are two drain plugs. The one in the center is the transmission drain. The one on the left side a bit forward is the oil drain.

Clutch cable leeks oil

The o-ring around the threaded end where it enters the transmission only keeps the oil from leaking to the outside. If you're getting oil on the inside of your cable, the cable needs replacing. The small oil seal is in the end of the threaded piece that screws into the transmission end cover.

Harley clutch cable leaking oil

Turned out to be an insect in the transmission vet tube that was not allowing the pressure to be relieved, And so the preassure followed the path of least resistance.....up the clutch cable and pussing the oil ahead of it!

Adjust clutch cable

If you have a stock cable you need a 9/16 and a 1/2 in. wrench. about 1/2 way downn the cable there is a rubber boot. pull the rubber boot over the adjustment. Loosen the liock nut and adjust the cable so you have aprox 1/8 to 1/16 in. slack in the handle. Re tighten the lock nut and pull the rubber back over the adjustment.
