Procedure to drain fuel from tank on a 2005 softail springer

Posted by on

  • hallcoseattl May 23, 2011

    i tried the syphon .... can't lean the bike far enough to the right since the fuel stays on the left side.

    crossover tube seems like a logical move.

    thanks for the help

  • You can either drain it from the crossover line in front of the tank and buy a new line clamp.
  • Or you can buy a cheap siphon kit and siphon the gas right out of the tank. Either will get you there.

Hi Nikay88, call, take a ride or trailer your bike over to your local dealers service/parts department, I'm sure they will be happy to take your Harley Davidson for a test ride if necessary/possible and offer professional advice and assistance concerning your issue. Good luck have a nice day.

Locating the oil plug on a 2005 HD


Look at the bottom of your oil tank from the right hand side of the bike. You should see a large pipe or hose running downwards towards the rear of the transmission along the frame. At the end of this pipe is a plug. Take the plug out to drain the oil.

Good Luck

2005 hd softail replaced battery... starts then shuts off acts like alarm system want to know proceger


It does. Often when you disconnect the battery you alarm needs re calibrated. Check your owner's manual for the proper procedure if this does not work...Hold your key fob button down for 20 seconds or so. This MAY re-sync the alarm, but not always.

Stalling problems on softail


I have a 1987 Softail and had a similar problem, but worse. That is some good advise to check the tank screen, I bet you will find your problem there. I found my problem in the tank with a clogged screen, stuff in tank so I flushed it with some clean fuel. I also flushed the fuel line cause I found trash in the carb, so then I rebuilt the carb (on your S&S you can take the float bowel off with out removing the carb to check for trash that may have gotten past the screen in the tank). I'm big on overkill though,you may only have to work on the tank.
