What kind of gear oil does my 2003 harley sporster take?

    There are two kinds of oil on a sportster, one is in the oil tank which lubes the engine and the Transmission. It Is 20w - 50

    The other is on the primary chain drive (left hand side.) And it is 80w - 90

    Make sure you are putting the right oil in the right place

Not everyone has the manual, 20W-50 synthetic is best.

Can not changedown gears onece and awile makes nose on 01 harritige classic soft tail most part gears change good but very loud its a clean snap but loud oil once and a wile leeks from air filter dealer...


Haryley tranny's do make a lot of noise, a good clean snap is normal. I ride a sporster and oil through the air filter is normal. Try running it a little low on oil it will help and it won't hurt the engine.

Oil blow out the breather


An overfull oil tank will do it. Even if not overfull just about all harley's will blow oil out the air filter. Unless there is a bunch of oil coming out, it's not a problem What I've found is that the air filter eventually gets saturated and then starts to leak through. The level in the oil tank doesn't seem to matter. If you change the air filter the problem goes away, until the new one gets saturated and then it starts all over again. My plan is to get a K&N air filter, which you can clean yourself and save having to buy a new air filter every 4,000 miles or so.
