Ride the bike and warn the engine and oil up. Find the oil drain plug. Usually, it's hose large hose that is plugged onto a lug on the frame and has a clamp on it. They moved this lug around seems like every year in that time frame and I can't remember each year. Once you've located the drain hose, pull it off and drain the oil tank. What you doing that, remove and replace the oil filter. This can be particulary messy as the filter is on it's side and oil will run everywhere when you loosen the filter. Oil the gasket of the new filter, screw it on until it makes contact, and then go another 3/4 to 1 full turn. Reconnect the drain hose to it's lug and fill oil tank with three quarts of 20W50 Harley Davidson Syn3 oil and any oil of this viscosity that has a API rating of "CG" for use in diesel engines petroleum based or synthetic. Good Luck, Steve

I have a 2005 Sportster 883, Always used shop to change oil & xmission fluid. Any problem using a standard 20w50 oil and 80w90 xmission fluid and do the work myself?


Hi Ron, I have no trouble with you doing your own oil changes but why would you want to use someone elses oil that was not designed for your Sportster to save a few pennies? If you needed a blood transfusion would you want it from a family member or some stranger? For more information about your question please visit the websites below. Good luck and have nice day.

Oil pump removal oil pressure


I need to know what year model Sportster you're working on. I know the book says you can change the oil pump without removal of the engine from the frame but it ain't that easy. Let me know exactly what year model you're working on. You may NOT have to pull the pump.

Are you certain you have no oil pressure? Pull the spark plugs and remove the oil filter. Spin the engine with the starter and see if oil pumps out of the oil pump adaptor. If it does, you have oil pressure and the oil pressure switch is lying to you. If your bike is equipped with an Evolution engine, 1986 or later, it will have hydraulic tappets. If you indeed do not have any oil pressure, the tappest will rattle badly.

Good Luck
Steve

How to top up oil for sportster 883 low 2008 m0del


After changing the oil on every bike I own, (So that I know the level is correct.) I then make a dip stick for that bike. I use a T handled alen wrench since it is never a straight shot down to the oil. I insert it as far as I can at whatever angle it takes to bottom out. Then when I pull it out I wrap it with tape just above the oil line to create a full mark. From then on I always know where I'm at.
