On the right hand side of the bike just behind the engine, there is an oblong chrome cover on the side of the transmission. In that is a plug that takes a large allen wrench or hex key to remove the plug, 7/16". Remove the plug and you'll find a dipstick. The transmission holds 20-24 ounces of oil. Make sure the oil is up to the mark when the bike is standing straight up.

Good Luck
Steve

Were is dip stick


Hi Anonymous, the engine oil dipstick on Softail and Sportster models is located on the right hand front side of the oil tank and the Harley Bible says, engine should be at normal operating tempurature, let idle on jiffy stand for two minutes. Shut off engine and hold bike straight up and dipstick all the way in, correct engine oil level will be at the top full mark. Do not overfill oil tank as this will cause engine breathing issues. On Dyna and Touring models The engine oil dipsticks are located on the right front top corner of the transmission and the engine oil pan is underneath the transmission. The engine oil level is checked in the same manner as Softails and Sportsters. If you are having oil carryover or breathing issues (dipstick launch) try running oil level half way between the add and full marks, running the engine at this oil level will not harm normal operation. Good luck

Hi Anonymous, the engine oil dipstick on later models unscrews, on earlier models it just pulls out with moderate force, on Softail and Sportster models the dipstick is located on the right hand front side of the oil tank and the Harley Bible says, engine should be at normal operating tempurature, let idle on jiffy stand for two minutes. Shut off engine and hold bike straight up and dipstick all the way in, correct engine oil level will be at the top full mark. Do not overfill oil tank as this will cause engine breathing issues. On Dyna and Touring models The engine oil dipsticks are located on the right front top corner of the transmission and the engine oil pan is underneath the transmission. The engine oil level is checked in the same manner as Softails and Sportsters. If you are having oil carryover or breathing issues (dipstick launch) try running oil level half way between the add and full marks, running the engine at this oil level will not harm normal operation. Good luck and have nice day.

How to drain the oil on a 2001 harley softail heritage, and where exactly is the drain plug and how much oil should you replace it with?


There is a large hose that runs down behind the transmission on down to the very bottom of the frame behind the exhaust pipes on the right side of the frame. It usually ends down on top of the lower frame tubes with a large metal plug in the end of the hose. I think later models have the hose run to a crossmember of the frame with a plug that screws into the crossmember from underneath. Remove the plug and drain the oil. Refill with three quarts of oil with a filter change. SAE 20W50.

Good Luck

How do i drain oil from an '01 heritage softail?


There is a hose or steel line that comes from the bottom of the right side of the oil tank and runs down the frame. Look for a plug held in by a clamp or a screw in plug just behind the transmission on the frame. Trace it up to the bottom of the tank or vice versa.

Good luck
