If you put 32 oz of primary oil in the primary case then you have enough oil in there already. Never put more then 1 full quart or you will have leak issues. The way I do it is to have the bike upright and level and look through the primary inspection cover and as long as the chain is in the oil a little bit then your fine.

Fill through the clutch inspection cover to the bottom of the clutch basket to be sure, but 32oz is the right amount for your model year.

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
