From the right side of the bike, look at the very lowest point of the oil tank. Back behind it is a hose that runs down behind the transmission and comes out down below the clutch release mechanism, that chrome cover on the right end if the transmission. The hose goes right down by the frame and behind the exhaust system. It either has a metal plug in the end of the hose or the hose connects to a crossmember of the frame. If it's connected to the crossmember, feel on the underside of the crossmember and you should feel a drain plug. Drain the oil and refill the tank with three quarts of 20W50 oil.

Good Luck

How to drain the oil on a 2001 harley softail heritage, and where exactly is the drain plug and how much oil should you replace it with?

There is a large hose that runs down behind the transmission on down to the very bottom of the frame behind the exhaust pipes on the right side of the frame. It usually ends down on top of the lower frame tubes with a large metal plug in the end of the hose. I think later models have the hose run to a crossmember of the frame with a plug that screws into the crossmember from underneath. Remove the plug and drain the oil. Refill with three quarts of oil with a filter change. SAE 20W50.

Good Luck

Changing oil myself on my Harley

Its simple. Softails drain from the oil tank, not the engine. Look directly under the bike in the area of the tank. U will see a hose with a plug. Remov the plug and drain the tank. Refill with 2.5 qts of oil and yer done
