When the oil was changed did you replace the sealing washer on the drain plug. Some times it falls in the oil pan and is not put back on or replaced. Typically there is a soft copper or aluminum sealing washer that gets squished by the bolt when you tighten it.That is what actually keeps the oil from leaking out. The other possibility would be a popped or blown seal or gasket. Wash the engine and find out exactly were it is leaking from then you will know what action to take.

Transmission oil is added, checked at a chrome plug with a 3/8 inch female hex socket head on the right top side of the transmission case. The engine oil drain plug is a 5/8 inch hex head plug on the bottom left side of the oil tank case under the spot where the jiffy stand rests in it up position.

Oil drain plug location


Hi Anonymous, I don't know what year your bike is but the oil pan is underneath the transmission. The engine oil drain plug is either on the front side left corner or the left side rear corner. The only drain plug that is actually on the bottom of the oil pan is for the transmission. Good luck

Where is the oil drain plug for 2002 road king


There are three oils. You do not say which one.

Dyna engine oil is on the left side bottom of the oil pan near where the jiffy stand rests when up and straight in from the side. The primary is under the middle of the primary case on the left side facing the ground and the transmission is under the right side of the oil sump case about mid way from front to back. All are 1/4 inch ALLEN socket heads inside 5/8 inch hex plugs. All use an o-ring and thread sealant.

Softail is the same except the engine oil drain is on the right side at the rear of the frame down tube near the swing arm attachment point and faces the ground.

Touring is the same except that the engine oil drain plug is on the left hand side front of the oil pan facing the front.

Sportster engine oil drain is on a rubber tube hanging down under the frame near where the jiffy stand rests when in its up position and the transmission and the primary use the same drain plug and are the same oil. The engine oil plug is a 5/16 inch plastic plug held in place with a mini worm screw clamp with a plain screwdriver or ¼ inch hex worm drive fitting.

I am doing an oil change on my firtst 88 inch twin cam. the manual shows where the drain plug is. but when I started draining what i thought was the motor oil . it appears that transmission oil came out....


I think the engine oil drain is on the bottom of the oil pan and the transmission oil drain is on the side. I'm really not positive as I work on the older models that have both drain plugs on the bottom of the pan. On my 1994 WideGlide, the drain plug in the middle of the pan is the transmission drain and the one on the front left bottom is the engine oil. Go to this site as look your bike up. Look at the Transmission picture of the housing. http://www.bikebandit.com

1st time changing oil on 2005 classic. looking for the drain plug also how much oil just for engine not trans, thanks


The oil tank for the engine is located on the bottom of the transmission. There are two drain plugs under the transmission. The engine oil drain is the drain plug closest to the front left of the oil pan. Slowly remove the plug and allow just a bit of oil to drain out so you can identify it as engine oil. It should be black, not clear. The engine holds three quarts of oil in the tank. Add the oil and then check it with the dipstick with the bike on the side stand. The dipstick has two marks on it. The upper mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Do not overfill.

Good Luck

Where is the oil plug located on a 2005 Harley FXR?


I didn't think Harley made the FXR anymore. I thought they discontinued that bike in 1999 or so. But, just in case, the FXR's oil tank was under the seat. The drain was located at the bottom of the tank on the left side of the bike under the triangluar shaped frame insert.

Now if the bike is and FXD Dyna Super Glide, the oil tank is on the bottom of the transmission. Under the transmission, there are two drain plugs, one is located near the center of the oil pan and this is the transmission drain plug. The engine oil drain plug is located towards the left front of the oil pan. Drain the oil with the bike on the side stand.

To determine the exact model of your bike, search the Internet for the "Harley alphabet" You should be able to find a site that helps you decode your serial number (VIN#) to determine the exact model of your bike.

Good Luck

Oil change procedure on BMW R 1150 R 2002


Things you will need, Drain pan, 5 quarts oil, BMW oil filter, oil drain plug seal, can of brake cleaner, allen head wrench that fits your drain plug, a oil filter wrench for R- Bike filters, ratchet with a drive that fits the oil filter wrench, paper towels, latex gloves, funnel that fits into the oil fill plug hole. I also keep an old blanket around so I can lay on the ground. Warm the bike up for 5 mins then turn off. Get the bike on the center stand. Position your drain pan under the drain plug . I like to lay out everything im going to use on 4 or 5 paper towels . Remove the fill plug on the top of the left cylinder, set it on the paper towel to keep crud off it. Take your allen head wrench and loosen the drain plug , if you using an open pan to drain your oil , be prepared to fish out the drain plug, it will fall into the oil drain pan. Let the oil drain for 10 minutes. Take some brake clean and spray it all around the area of the oil filter to get rid of all the crud. All the dripping **** should flow into the drain pan if you bought one big enough. Buy drain pans that you can reseal when your done, put it in the car and take it to a recycling center. Put the oil filter wrench onto the ratchet. This oil filter wrench will slip into the filter slot under the engine. Just turn the ratchet untill the filter comes off. Should be clockwise. After the filter is removed, spray brake clean into the filter housing area to get rid off the **** and oil, wipe down with a paper towel and reach up into the filter housing to get all the ****, one final spray off brake clean should clean everthing out.
IF THERE IS NO MORE OIL COMING OUT OF THE DRAIN PLUG, put a new sealing ring on the drain plug and tighten up , snug not TIGHT.
Now before you put the new oil filter on , open up a quart of oil and fill the oil filter up about 90% with new oil, put a little oil on the rubber seal, put the the oil filter into your filter tool and insert the tool and filter up into the filter housing. Do this be hand so you will not strip the filter housing threads. The filter should go on very easy and you should be able to turn the filter at least 3-4 turns until its hand tight, Finish off with the ratchet, SNUG NOT TIGHT. Finish off with a little brake cleaning on the bottom of the engine housing to clean up any oil. Put the funnel in the fill hole and put in 3 quarts of oil. Read your owners manual for your oil capacity. There is a sight glass on the lower left side off the engine under the cylinder. Fill with oil until the oil level is in the middle of the sight glass. Put you fill cap back on. Turn you engine over a couple of times put dont let the bike run for more than 5 seconds, let the bike sit for 2-5 minutes to let the oil level settle, then check the oil level in the sight glass, it should be in the middle. if you dont see any oil in the sight glass after 2-5 minutes add a little oil at a time until the oil level in the sight glass is in the middle. Start the bike agian for 5-10 seconds , then check the oil level in the sight glass. You should be good to go. email me for any questions

2004 1200 XLR WHERES OIL PLUG AND TRANS PLUG


Damon, on the bottom the drain hose has a plug. Remove the plug to drain ENGINE oil. When done draining (takes a long time as it drains slowly), put the plug back in and add oil to the oil tank on right side of the bike (don't forget to change the oil filter too). Transmission/chaincase/clutch oil is drained by removing the plug from the bottom of the tranny case. Adding tranny oil is done through the clutch inspection cover or chain inspection cover on the left side of the bike using a funnel with a hose attached (sold in aoutoparts stores everywhere). Tranny oil and engine oil are not the same! I would use Sportrans or HD tranny oil for that instead of 20W50 in the tranny. Add no more than 28 oz. If you add the whole quart (32 oz) you will have hard time finding neutral as the case will be over-filled. If you take the clutch inspection cover (a.k.a. derby cover) off, make sure the bike is not leaning on the kick stand but is upright or the proper amount of oil in the tranny will spill out. I put a brick under the kick stand and it centers the bike pretty well.

Good luck!

Engine oil plug


Another way to locate it, is with the bike on the kickstand, look underneath of it from the right (brake) side. The oil drain plug is on the front of the square looking pan under, and to the rear of the engine. The oil drain is the plug on the front of that pan, on the left (shifter) side of the bike. The trans drain is on that same square looking pan, but towards the right side, and faces down. It screws in and out vertically, whereas the oil drain is horizontal
