Question about Harley Davidson XLH Sportster 883 Motorcycles
It depends on what year model the Sportster is. Harley went to an alternator on the Sportster in late 1984. It was behind the clutch assembly with the outer clutch drum acting as the rotor. It stayed this way up until 1991 when they moved the stator and rotor up to the front of the engine like a Big Twin. It is now in the primary and driven off the engine sprocket shaft.

Yes, there is oil in primary and transmission of your Sporty. To drain the oil, look for the drain plug on bottom of rear section of the primary area, back near the large round section of the primary. Drain the oil here and replace the plug. Add the oil at the top primary chain inspection port, large plug with a large "screwdriver" slot or two small bolts in it. Add 32-36 ounces of H-D "primary lubricant for Sportsters".
