On most softail bikes, the "horseshoe" oil tank has a drain mounted down low on the frame. Look along the bottom side of the oil tank from the right side of the bike. You'll see a hose or a pipe going downwards towards the transmission. The rest of the pipes run to the engine. Follow this on down and it should run along the frame just behind and below the transmission. It'll have a plug in the end of the hose or pipe. Remove the plug and the engine oil will drain out.

Hope this helps
Steve

Need to locate engine oil drain plug so i can replace the oil


I am referring to the drain pan on the Harley Davidson Twin cam 88 engine.

The engine oil drain hex bolt is located on the right side of the motorcycle (as you are seated on it) and is removed/installed horizontally.

Transmission oil drain hex bolt is located on the left side of the motorcycle (as you are seated on it) and is removed/installed vertically.

How to change engine oil on a 2000 harley davidson fxst


On the right hand side of the bike, look under the bottom of the oil tank. You should see a large hose or pipe running from the bottom of the tank down behind the transmission. It follows the frame down low behind the exhaust system. Now, Harley changed the location of the plug and I don't know what year they did it. The plug will be a metal plug stuck into the end of the hose or it will be a screw in plug under the frame in the cross brace. Just follow the large hose to the end and you'll find the plug.

Good Luck
Steve

Changing oil myself on my Harley


Its simple. Softails drain from the oil tank, not the engine. Look directly under the bike in the area of the tank. U will see a hose with a plug. Remov the plug and drain the tank. Refill with 2.5 qts of oil and yer done
