How to check the primary chaincase oil level on a 1993 fat boy


Hi, Rick sorry this took so long to answer there was a storm yesterday and my building lost power, to check the oil level in the primary the bike must be level, remove the Derby Cover exposing the clutch pack, oil level line should be at the bottom of the large diaphragm spring or 2.75" straight down from the center of the adjusting screw. The total amount of Primary Chaincase Lubricant is 30-36 oz. For this scenario, you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the best tool you ever bought for your Harley, despair not, for a mere $7 you can download another one.

Look at the various videos online (youtube and fixmyhog). The main thing is to not spill oil when removing the oil filter. Ruins the front engine mount.

I am switching from syn oil to reg hd oil on a 1992 flstf. Do I need to drain the engine case? If so, where is the plug located? Is there anything else I need to be aware of? THANKS


I would purchase a Harley Davidson repair manual or get one on CD from ebay not as much as a paperback and just as good. The repair manual is a mechanics best friend. Remember buy one it is the best friend you can have when doing maintenance on you harley.

The drain plug can be hard to find. In the 2001 Fat Boy, it is in front of the back motorcycle tire between the Fat Boy's rear shocks.

To do the oil change you need to warm up the oil so it drains better.

Tilt the motorcycle to its right side and position your oil catchment container under the oil plug.

Use your wrench set to unscrew the oil drain plug. In a 2001 Harley Davidson Fat Boy, you need a wrench that will fit a 1/4-inch screw.

Drain the oil. While oil is draining from your Harley Davidson, use the time to clean out the magnet and rubber ring positioned under the oil drain plug.

Remove and replace the oil filter after the oil has drained. Refill with 3 to 4 quarts of engine oil. Replace all parts, including drain plug.

Remember the HD manual will tell you how to check the level of primary fluid needed. Each HD is different and needs different amounts.

You check your primary fluid level through the inspection cover, which is the oval cover in the middle of the primary cover. You'll need a T25 Torx wrench to remove the bolts. Have a new inspection cover gasket in case you need it.

Add the fluid through the inspection cover. You can use any kind of oil petroleum or synthetic as long as it does not contain friction modifiers.

replace the gasket on the inspection cover if needed. Tighten bolts finger tight; then tighten the bolts at 10 foot pounds. Start with the top bolt and then tighten the bottom bolt. The third bolt is the right one, and the left bolt is last.

Need new cluch 2001 Fat Boy 10000 mi.


Not sure what the question is but to get to the clutch you will have to drain the oil out of the primary and remove both small covers and lager outside primary cover to get to the clutch. Remeber to fill it with oil after you put it together it should take about 32 ounces of oil.

How do I change the oil on a 2002 fat boy? Where is the drain plugs?


On the fatboy, the oil drain plug should be on the right side, just under the frame, directly below the oil tank. The primary drain is on the left side under the derby cover on the bottom. The tranny drain is on the bottom towards the rear pretty much centered.
And, as our darlin' little miss piglet said, a maual is worth the investment.

How to change oil on 2002 fat boy


The drain plug is a hose that comes down to a sprung clamp on the frame behind the gear box on the right side of your bike. Remove from clamp then undo the screw-ring round the hose to allow the plug in the hose to be removed, take lid off oil tank and turn engine over a coupla times to clear engine oil into drainage tank. Replace plug- etc before refilling with half the oil, turn engine over coupla times then add remaining top up oil. Drainage for your primary oil is at the rear inside near the gasket joint and can be removed with a Hex spanner, taking the large outside cover off your primary with star drive sockets to allow airflow for drainage and then to pour new oil in through after replacing drainage plug in the bottom. Buy a Manual Mate, its worth it eh considering the value of your bike?
