Question about 2001 Harley Davidson FXSTB Night Train
The transmission oil should be changed every 5,000 miles or yearly. The "yearly" change interval is to prevent water buildup in the transmission due to condensation. If you get condensation in the transmission, the oil will float on top of the water. With the water on the bottom of the transmission, you won't detect it by checking the oil dipstick. I've seen many a four speed transmission worn out due to this. Haven't seen a five speed yet but I'd be willing to bet they aren't far off. The transmission holds 20-24 ounces of oil. Drain, refill, stand the bike up straight and check the level with the dipstick. If you think changing your transmission oil every year is too expensive, look at the price of a quart of oil and the price of rebuilding a transmission. I think you'll think the way I do.
