Question about Harley Davidson XL 1200 R Sporster Roadster Motorcycles
On some of the late model Sportsters there is an oil level plug. Look on the rear of the primary cover for a small plug. There will be a plug at the bottom of the primary but that is the drain. The one I'm talking about, if your bike has one, is going to be up about two or three inches (50-75mm) from the bottom on the backside.
If your bike does not have the plug, you must pull the plate off the side of the primary cover where the clutch assembly is. Look at the clutch assembly and you'll see the flat spring in the assembly. The oil level should be just to the bottom of that spring with the bike standing straight up.
