There are two drain plugs on the bottom of the transmission. One is the engine oil and the other is the transmission. Drain the two oils from there. The primary oil drain is a small pipe plug underneath the lowest part of the primary drive cover.

The engine holds three quarts of oil, the transmission holds 20-24 ounces of oil, and the primary hold 36-42 ounces of oil. Fill the primary until the oil level is just to the bottom of the spring in the clutch assembly. If you get too much oil in the primary, the clutch will drag and you will be unable to find neutral with the engine running.

Good Luck

Transmission oil is it my understanding you use the same oil for the Transmission, Primary and the Engine?


While Harley does have an oil they claim is for all 3 holes (engine, primary, transmission), this runs against conventional wisdom, and you have to understand that Harley doesn't know jack about oil, and someone else makes it for them.

For transmissions, the best is Red Line "ShockProof" transmission fluids.

My 03 ultra classic is leaking trans fluid they say its a $1 dollar o ring that cost about $600 to fix?


First off, determine if it's transmission fluid, or primary chain case fluid.
I had the seal on the transmission main shaft go on me once (the seal under the transmission rear drive pulley, behind the inner primary cover).
This can be changed with the transmission still in the bike, but the entire primary needs to come apart, and the transmission sprocket/pulley removed to access it.

If it's primary fluid, it's probably the seal on the inner primary case that the transmission shaft runs through and that the clutch assembly bolts to.
Again, the entire primary needs to be torn down to access this.

Either way, the cost of the part isn't bad, but the labor is the killer, as it's a 6-10 hour job, if I remember the book's quote.

I need 2 do oil changes on my 97 Dyna Low Rider. 1. Type and amount of oil for engine? 2. Type and amount of oil for clutch / transmission? Thanking you. Spy.


Your engine holds three quarts of oil, 20W50 petroleum or synthetic.

Your Primary holds about a quart of oil. Stand the bike straight up and fill up to the lower edge of the outer clutch basket through the derby cover access. Do not overfill or the clutch will drag. H-D primary and transmission lubricant.

Your Transmission holds 20-24 ounces of the same H-D primary and transmission lubricant. Stand the bike up straight, remove the plug from the chrome end on the right side of the transmission that takes a large hex key to remove. Level should be between the lines on the dipstick.

As for what brand of lubricant, there are many of them on the market that are sufficient to do the job. I stick with H-D lubricant for the primary and transmission. I like H-D, Mobil V-Twin, or Amsoil for the engine. Whatever brand you choose, check their website for suitability and their recommendations.

Good Luck

Oil quantity need for oil change on 05 fatboy engine transmission and primary


The engine take three quarts, the primary takes 38-44 ounces, and the transmission holds 20-24 ounces. Check the oil in the engine oil tank with the bike on the side stand. As long as the oil is between the lines, do not add oil. When you change the oil and filter, start the engine for 15 seconds and then check the oil. On the primary, stand the bike straight up. Remove the derby cover and fill the primary until the oil comes just up to the bottom of the outer clutch shell. Do not overfill. If you do, the clutch will drag and you will not be able to find neutral with the engine running. Check the transmission with the bike straight up as well. There is a dip stick on the plug where you add the oil. Make sure the oil level is between the lines.

Need to know engine oil type and transmission oil type and capacities for 2004 fxdwgi


Your bike came new from the factory with Harley-Davidson Syn3 20W50 synthetic engine oil in the engine, transmission, and primary. You can change brands of any oil you wish but go online and see what the manufacturer recommends. Some other manufacturers of lubricants are Amsoil, Royal Purple, Mobil, Golden Spectro, and RevTech. Just follow their recommendations. The engine holds approx. 3 quarts, the primary holds approx. a quart, and the transmission holds 20-24 ounces. Always check the level with the dipstick once you change the oil. The dipsticks have two marks on them. The upper mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Do not overfill.

2003 harley davison superglide fxd questions concerning oil


The engine takes three quarts of oil with a filter change. Now, always check the oil after filling. The dipstick has two marks on it. The upper mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Do not overfill.

The transmission holds 20-24 ounces of transmission lube. It too has a dipstick on it.

The primary holds 36-42 ounces of oil. Do not overfill this either because too much oil will make your clutch seem like it's dragging. You will not be able to find neutral with the engine running.

Good luck

Does the lubracation for the primary chain come from engine oil


No, the engine is on one system. The primary and the transmission use the same oil. When you change the oil in the primary you are changing the transmission at the same time.

I,ve got a 2008 Ultra classic, and want to change the fluids. It's got 8000 miles, and i dont have a owners manual. the oil, i can figure out , but the trans, and the primary I dont have an idea.


On the bottom of your transmission, there are two drain plugs, one for the transmission and one for the engine oil. The plug in the center is the transmission drain plug and the one toward the left front is the engine oil drain. The primary drain is a small pipe plug that takes a Torx wrench located at the bottom of the primary cover towards the rear of the bike.

Engine oil three quarts with filter. Then start the bike and let it run for a few minutes. Shut down the engine and check the oil level with the dipstick. The dipstick has two marks on it. "Full Cold" and "Full Hot". Fill to the full cold mark.

Transmission takes 20-24 ounces of oil and the primary takes 38-44 ounces of oil. Do not overfill the primary as it will cause your clutch to drag. All three sections take H-D Syn3 20W50 synthetic engine oil.

How do I change all my fluids on a FLHTC 2005


There are three areas that you have to service, engine oil, primary oil, and transmission.

To change the engine oil, underneath the transmission, you'll find two drain plugs. The drain plug nearest the left side of the engine is the the engine oil drain. Warm the engine a bit and drain the oil. Change the oil filter. This is a messy job so put something down to catch the oil as it runs out of the filter. Replace drain plug and refill with oil.

The plug nearest the center of the transmission is the transmission drain. Remove the plug to drain the transmission. Once drained replace the plug and refill the transmission through the transmission fill hole in the chrome cover on the right side of the transmission.

To change the primary oil, underneath the primary outer cover very near the rear of this cover is a small drain plug. It takes a Torx wrench to get the plug out. Remove the plug to drain the oil from the primary. Remove the derby cover over the clutch. Refill with oil through the derby cover hole.

Your bike probably came with H-D Syn3 oil. You can replace the oil with this or any other oil as long as it carries a rating for use in a diesel engine. Here, it must have an API code of "C", example "SJ/CG4". Four quarts of engine oil, Add three quarts of oil and check. Fill to proper level with the fourth. Your dipstick is marked with a "Full Cold" and "Full Hot" mark. Fill to "Full Cold" mark and check again after warming up the engine.

Use Syn3 in the primary or 30 weight oil, 40-44 ounces. With the bike standing nearly straight up, the fluid level should be to the bottom of the clutch spring, large black disc in the center of the clutch. It's a diaphragm type spring.


Use Syn3 in the transmission, 20-24 fluid ounces. Check with the dip stick again with the bike standing straight up.

Need information on the changing of engine, primary and transmission oils on 2006 883L sportster


Drain the oil tank by taking the hose loose that plugs onto the frame on the left side of the bike right behind the engine down low. Look underneath the engine and you see a small plug that screws into the primary cover from the bottom. This plug uses a Torx wrench to remove it.

Change the oil filter. This is a messy job as oil pours out of the filter as you unscrew it from the engine. Install the new filter and tighten. Add three quarts of oil to the oil tank of the engine and one quart of primary/transmission oil to the primary. The primary and transmission are lubricated by the same oil. I think the later model bikes came with Syn3 oil in both places.
