Not sure if I understand the question. If you are asking how much oil goes into the primary on a Dyna Wide Glide, the answer is 36 to 42 ounces. Do not overfill or the clutch will drag.

Reserve tank not working

Are you turning the tap the right way as it sounds like you are running on the reserve tank all the time and when you turn over the tank is already empty.

What is the gas mileage on this bike that holds 4.2 gallons? Also, how do i activate the reserve tank? Just bought this bike and didn't get a manual with it. How many miles can i ride before i need an...

You didn't say what size Star you had.
Mileage for the 650 is listed at 47mpg ---for the 1100 42.8mpg

The indicator on the petcock valve should have a P & R on it--- P, is primary, R is reserve. It's a simple design, with 2 different length pickups on it. So if you can't read the lettering on the valve. remove the fuel line going to the carbs. when your tank is low on fuel--- And you can determine how to set it. The pickup for the reserve gas will be on the back, or looking at it, right side of the valve.

The owners manual states to change oil every 4000 miles and filter every 8000
Personally, i change BOTH every 3000 miles. Clean oil is the key to keeping a V-twin engine happy and running for many miles. SAE 20w50 synthetic is what i use. I believe the manual calls for 20w40, which is fine for break in and while the bike is under warranty.
The choice is yours.

The Clymer service manual, is a handy tool to have. I recommend you get one. Ebay is a good place to find them along with Amazon....

I hope this helps & good luck with your Star...these are good bikes.

I have a 1983 Yamaha Virago 500 and I really need to know what RES and PRI mean on the fuel-**** and how I should use these functions

Those are your PRImary and REServe tanks, although it's actually just two valve openings at different levels in the same fuel tank.

The idea is to use the primary tank all the time and if the fuel level falls below the primary inlet the bike will stop as a warning that you're running out of gas. You can then use the reserve setting to get to a gas station.

91 sportster is blowing oil out the trans vent (under the seat) and down the side of the bike. I checked the fluid levels, and they are fine. Its an 883 converted to 1200. Bike has been lowered. It seems...

If all the lowering has been done in the rear of the bike, then your transmission/primary lubricant level may be too high back where the vent is located. If so, I'd be willing to bet that your reserve position on the fuel tank won't take you very far either. If the bike has been radically changed from level ride configuration, you must adjust the fluid levels in certain areas. Back when people would extend the front ends drastically without raking the frame, they had major problems with these issues. One other thing that will do this is fuel getting into the engine and primary case. I once saw a Sportster that the needle and seat was leaking in the carb. It filled the engine with fuel and it seeped over into the primary though the sprocket shaft bearings in the case. Smell of your oil and see if it has gasoline in it. If so, fix your carb and make sure you turn your fuel off whenever you turn the engine off. It's old school but it works.

Good Luck

Just want to change tranmisson and primary oil

On a Sportster, the transmission and primary oil are the same. There is a drain plug underneat the bottom of the primary at the rear. The primary oil is added through the upper primary chain tensioning access hole at the top of the primary. Add about one quart of Primary and Transmission lube for Sportster. I'd recommend H-D oil.

Good Luck

Oil in water reserve tank

you checked your water in the reserve tank and there is water in it? well awesome man good to know!! ha ha there is water in mine too,

no but seriously i think you mean oil right?
if you have oil in your antifreeze reserve tank it usually means you have a blown head gasket, and that you will need to replace,
take it to a mechanics shop you trust as it will be not a cheap fix because they will need to take off the head to get to it.

Can't locate reserve oil drain plug on 1994 Ford E350

It only has 1 oil pan which is call a dual resreve. One oil plug is a the bottom of the pan the other is at the front of the oil pan. Look at the front of the oil pan for the other drain plug. Make sure on how many quarts of oil it takes. ( I know 5.0 take 5 quarts including oil filter. But then again its a van double check)

How to add more than one record in one row ?

You need to have two tables. One table for the reservation (each reervation having a primary key) and one table to store the people "linked" to that reservation. In the second table, each person will be on a row and one column in your second table would refer to the first (reservation) table in a one-to-many relationship. Read into database design and this will make sense. This can all be done in ADO.NET.
