The oil drain plug is located on the right hand side of your bike  as if you were sitting on it, in front of the swing arm right off of the frame rail. The drain plug is a 5/8 bolt.

The fork oil is a very specific job needing a manual and a special tool, I don't want to insult anyones mechanical knowledge but if you have never done it before, best to take somewhere else. Engine oil on the other hand is easy, the drain tube to any softail is on the right side by where the frame meets the swing arm, has somekind of plug in it. Start and run bike for a little while, long enough to get it warm but not hot. Remove fill plug and then remove plug in drain line. Using a peice of cardboard or something put in between filter and frame , directing the oil to your drain pan instead of where ever it goes. Put 1 qt oil back in (after everything is reinstalled) start the bike and make sure the oil light goes out, when it does shut bike off and fill to the point that when it is standing upright you get a little oil on the tip of your finger, over filling may result in loss of oil cap from pressure (been there)

In changing 2005 Harley Heritage Model FLSTCI fork oil, how many ounces of fork oil should I use? What does wet or dry mean?


I'm sorry but I don't have the specs on the quantity and type of fork oil for your year and model bike. I work on the older bikes that the dealers will no longer service. But, I can describe the difference between the "wet" and "dry" conditions of the fork assembly. If you take the front forks apart, clean them out, and put them back together with no oil in them, they are considered "dry". For a simple drain and refill type oil change on them where you don't get all the oil out of them, they are considered "wet". I hope this helps, You can call you local dealer's service department and they should tell you the quantity and viscosity of the oil that goes in the front forks on your machine. They'll tell you something like 6 ounces of "Type E" oil, for example. Harley-Davidson uses these types of specs to describe their oils. If you go to a website for fork oil, like PJ1, they may give a cross reference or equivalency chart for converting H-D "Type E" to their oil. I think that would be their 30 weight oil. If the front end seems too "stiff" with 30 weight, you can drop down to 20 weight. I think Honda makes a 25 weight but not sure. Your Harley won't mind the Honda oil. BG.

Good Luck

I have a 2002 flstc , just replaced the " fork seals ", still leaking on left side. i was told to replace " oil seals " under the " slide tube cap " and spacer. will this...


Well, yes. The fork seals are located at the top of the fork slider un the "slide tube cap". This makes me wonder exactly what did you replace when you say that you just replaced the "fork seals". To get to these oil seals, you have to disassemble the forks tubes. Remove the front wheel and fenders. Down where you took the axle out, look up into the end of the slider and you'll see a socket head bolt, 6mm. Loosen this bolt before you take the tube out of the triple tree. Remove and repair one tube at the time. When you get the slider off the top tube, you will see a retainer ring in the top of the slider. The seal is under this ring. The new oil seals must be replace squarely in the tube. When you reassemble the tube and put it back in the triple tree, there is a specific amount of fork oil that must be added to each tube to properly refill it. You must use the "dry" quantity when refilling the fork tube because you disassembled and completely drained the tube. I'm sorry but I don't have this quantity of fork oil for this late of a model bike. I work on the earlier model bikes only.

good luck

How to chang fork oil


To change the fork oil, you can remove the drain plug on the lower slider and by "pumping" the front end. Then, you can add the correct measured amount of oil in from the top of the tube. To get to the top of the top tube, you will have to remove everything you need to get out of the way in order to remove the headlight nachelle. Then remove the top cap and pour in the correct amount of oil.

As an alternative, I've heard that once you drain the forks, you can refill the forks from the same drain hole by using a syringe that will hold the correct amount of oil and injecting into the hole very much like filling the foot of an outboard motor. I've never done this but I can see how this just might work.

Good Luck

Have 93 flstc had the front shocks rebuilt, have 38 in back tire and 36 in front, but it rides like your ridding on knobbies, whats up, tires look good.


firstly are you running the manufacturers recomended tyre presures has the correct weight fork oil been used when they where rebuilt if the rear suspension has been set up for two up work & your doing mostly solo it will be to hard try a softer setting to much oil in the front forks will also make for a stiffer ride.more oil in one fork than the other may also contribute to the knobby tyre feel these are alll relatively easy checks to make. start with tyre pressures & go from there it may also pay you to slacken of the pinch bolts on the tripple clamps & allow the forks to center themselves this will need to be done with the machine on a lift with the front wheel off the ground position the front wheel in a straight ahead position with your knees either side holding the wheel firmly between your knees give the bars a tweek left & right allow the bars to center resecure the pinch bolts the other thing you might want to check are the rims for flat spots or buckles

How do I change the fork oil on a 2002 Heritage Soft tail Harley?


look at the fork legs at the bottom there is a bolt on both legs its only a small bolt,,, undo this bolt and the fork oil will drain out,, to refill the forks take the top nut off the fork leg near the handel bars,,,,,,dont over fill with oil,,,and only use the proper oil,,or the seals will blow out and the forks will be very stiff
