Question about 2003 Harley Davidson FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide

1 Answer

I have a 2003 wide glide. While changing the fluids, I noticed a bolt that takes a 1/4 allen key toward the front of the bike with a triangle on the inside of it. It's almost right under the push rods(on the bottom of the bike) What does this drain?

It's probably there to drain the oil out of the cam chest in the event you need to go into it to inspect the chain tensioners or something. Do not mess with this plug under normal conditions. Change the oil under the transmission and that's it. Don't forget to service the primary and the transmission at their scheduled intervals.

Good Luck

How and where do I add transmission fluid on my motorcycle???

Hi Jules, the dipstick and filler hole is located towards the front of the clutch release cover on the right side of the transmission and it takes a 3/8" allen key to remove. After you have drained the transmission fluid place a long neck funnel into the filler hole and pour 22oz. of HD Transmission Lubricant, with the bike in the upright position insert the dipstick into the filler hole until the threads touch the cover then remove, correct fluid level, should be between the 2 marks on the bottom of the dipstick.For more information about your question or issue, please visit the websites below and for more specific information or questions, please feel free to contact me at Good luck and have nice day.

Where is the drain plug for the transmission fluid, do you have a diagram, 2003 dyna super glide

I'm not sure what year they moved the plugs to the front of the pan but the plug that takes an allen or hex key is the tranny drain on the front of the pan. If your drains are under the bottom of the pan, it's the drain closest to the center of the pan.

Good Luck

Where is the transmission dip stick on a 2003 dyno wide glide

On the right side of the bike in the clutch release mechanism on the end of the transmission. It's kinda located behind the exhaust pipes. It's a plug that takes a 3/8" Allen or Hex key to remove. It's got a short dipstick on it. Check the fluid with the bike standing straight up and keep the level between the two lines.

Good luck

Changing transmisson fluid 2006 dyna wide glide

The drain is bottom side of the transmission. It's a plug that takes a hex key to remove and is just towards the center of the pan from the oil drain plug. Your transmission takes 20-24 ounces of fluid. Always check the level with the dipstick when you change the oil.

How much trouble is it to change front fork seals on a 2000 wide glide and do you have instructions on it?

If, notice I said "if", your bike has the standard 41mm wide glide front end, changing the fork seals is not that difficult.

Get the bike up off the ground on a stable lift. Safety is paramount.

Now take the front wheel and fender off. Take the large "Bolt" out of one of the fork tubes at the upper triple tree. There are special sockets made to do this with so that you won't scratch your chrome upper tree. Loosen the pinch bolt on the lower triple tree. Put some lubricant on the fork tube and work it down and out of the triple trees. You may have to spead the lower triple tree by driving a chisel into the slot from the bottom side.

Once you have one of the fork tubes out. Remove the plug at the top. There will be a large spring under the plug. Usually it doesn't have much pressure on it with the tube fully extended and if it's the stock spring. With the plug and the spring out, you can pour the oil out of the tube. Notice which direction the spring comes out of the tube. I must go back in with the tapered end down.

Look on the bottom of the tube where the axle goes through. You'll see an allen head or socket head bolt in there. It' should be an 8mm sized bolt but it takes a "piloted" hex key. Now, you can use a standard hex key but it must be in new condition since the bolt head is so shallow. I have found that a hex key socket used with an air wrench is best to get the screw out. With the screw, you can now seperate the upper fork tube from the lower slider.

Remove the retainer ring in the top of the slider and pry out the old seal. Install the new seal in the proper direction. Reassemble the fork assembly. Now, add the proper amount of oil to the tube before you install the upper plug. The forks take 10.2 to 11.2 ounces of oil each. The lower figure is for a "Wet" refill and the higher number is for a "Dry" refill. If you take your fork tube apart and pour out all the oil, use the "dry" figure of 11.2 ounces type "E" or 30 weight fork oil. If the forks are too stiff with this oil, drop back to 20 weight fork oil.

Good Luck

How do i fill my transmission fluid on my 2004 dyna wide glide

I will walk you thru it from the manual. The transmission filler plug/dipstick location : DYNA Models is located under the battery box and just above the exhaust top pipe on the right side of the scooter. The dipstick/filler plug should be a shiny chrome allen headed looking bolt. When the dipstick/filler plug has been removed there is an F above a triangle toward the top if fluid is a the F it is full and the towards the bottom of the stick there is a another triangle and an A this means you need to add fluid if fluid level is at the A triangle marker. Oh, Tranny fluid specs are 32 OZS. I recommend using ONLY Genuine Harley Davidson Fluids.

If you need to drain or change the fluid please let me know I will walk you through step by step. Also if you need to know about the primary or engine lube specs please let me know as I have the manual sitting right here in front of me to assist you in any way I can.

I REALLY REALLY Hope this assisted you and will be more than happy to assist further step by step if you need it.

How to change oil pan gasket . 2003 wide glide

The oil pan is on the bottom of the transmission on your Dyna Wide Glide. To change the gasket start by draining the engine oil and transmission lubricant by removing both plugs on the bottom. Once drained, disconnect the hoses going to the oil pan. Remove oil fill cap, remove two screws and remove the oil spout, pull up on the dip stick cover to remove it. Now, remove the allen head bolts and remove the oil pan. Replace gasket and all bolts. Torque all bolts to 7-9 foot pounds. Refill with oil. Transmission take 20-24 ounces of transmission lube and the oil tank takes 2 quarts 14 ounces of oil if you did not replace the oil filter. Since the oil filter is still full of oil, if you put the full three quarts of oil in the tank, the oil cap will blow off when the oil gets hot as it's overfilled. Good luck
