That is an old manual ... you are certain it is not in the small compartment near the battery? There is a polethera of info at the HD web site. Of course you could (should) go to the HD dealership and make friends with the guy at the parts counter.

My 99 evo blows oil out around the head on the front cyl and smoke out the exhaust


Hi, Stacey it's called "WET SUMPING" most Harley's with external oil pumps if left sitting for weeks or months will eventually let the oil tank contents drain pass the oil pump check ball and fill up the bottom end of the crankcase when the bike is started the excess oil will gush out of the breather vent and if routed to the air cleaner will also flood the filter. This messy condition will continue until the bottom end is forcibly emptied by the flywheels or manually drained if there is a plug. There are 3 options you may want to consider:
1. Drain the oil tank before storing the bike.
2. Replace check ball and resurface seat in the oil pump.
3. Install inline ball valve shut off in the feed line to the pump.

2010 triumph thunderbird. Do i check oil level with bike level or leaned over on kickstand. I bought this bike used and no owners manual came with bike. Where can i get one?


You should check the oil level on a level ground and it should be standing. If your triumph motor has a center stand, better use that then check the oil level. If you change oil, you also need to change the oil filter. For the manual, go to http://www.triumphmotorcycles.com/

Hope this helps

I need a owners manual i dont even know how to check oil


You should be able to get an owners's manual through any local H-D dealership or you can go here:
http://www.diyrepairmanuals.com/products.asp?cat=14232

To check your oil. look for a large cap, about 2 inches in diameter, on the corner of your transmission. It'll be knurled on the outer edges kinda like a coin. When you pull the cap up, there will be a long dipstick on it. The stick will have two marks. The upper mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is 'FULL COLD". Keep the oil level between these two marks. Do not overfill. Check the oil with the bike on the kick stand. The bike uses 20W50 weight oil. The capacity is three quarts and the oil tank is on the bottom of the transmission.

Good Luck
