There's a large hose that has a tee in it with a plug or simply a large hose plugged onto a part of the frame. This is located on the left side of the bike somewhere between the bottom of the battery box and lowest part of the frame. Harley moved those around a big depending on the year and model Sportster it is.

Good Luck

I have a 2005 Sportster 883, Always used shop to change oil & xmission fluid. Any problem using a standard 20w50 oil and 80w90 xmission fluid and do the work myself?


Hi Ron, I have no trouble with you doing your own oil changes but why would you want to use someone elses oil that was not designed for your Sportster to save a few pennies? If you needed a blood transfusion would you want it from a family member or some stranger? For more information about your question please visit the websites below. Good luck and have nice day.

Oil for a Harley Davidson Sportster 1991


Harley-Davidson recommends their 20W50 petroleum based oil for the engine. You can use the H-D Syn 3 20W50 synthetic oil in the engine but I don't recommend it in the primary/transmission area. You can use any 20W50 oil as long as the API rating has a "C" rating for use in diesel engines. Look for the round circle somewhere on the container that had the API initials in it. It should say something like "SJ/CG". What you're looking for the "C" rating. If you wish to use a specific brand of oil, got to their website and look for their recommendations.

In the transmission, Harley recommends their Semi-Synthetic Primary and Transmission lubricant for Sportsters. The lube lubricates both the primary and the transmission on the Sportster. I don't recommmend full synthetic transmission lube on any bike built before 1995 as it will cause the gears to run noisey. In 1995, Harley changed the back cut on the gears and this made use of full synthetic lube more quiet running. Of course, you can use the full synthetic from a lubrication view point. It's just a bit noisey for my taste.

Whatever you use, make sure you go online and check the manufacturer's suggestion for use.

Good Luck
Steve

How do i change my engune oil


Warm up the bike first. On Evolution Sportster's, be sure to change the filter the same time you change oil. The oil may be drained from the tank, by locating a blanked-off hose behind the transmission case, near the frame. Remove the plug and drain into a proper container. One problem with Sportster's (and other HD engines) is that some old oil is always left in the system. You can eject some of this by taking off the plug wires and cranking the engine to expel old oil back into the tank, and hence to drain line. Don't crank the engine more than 30 sec. to avoid damage. Never run engine W/O oil in the system. Recycle old motor oil !!
