You dont say what model bike BUT .... if its an evo.... you have to drain the oil out from the oil tank. Theres an oil drain hose. It doesnt drain thru the engine. If its a twin cam it does...Maybe you were low on oil ? Theres also oil in the filter. A quart might be about it in that case

How to change gearbox and engine oil


There is a sump plug located at the bottom of the engine. It is very tight. Make sure you have the correct size socket to remove the plug. Use a suitable oil pan under the bike before removing the plug. Once the plug is removed and the oil is drained, stand the bike upright to get the last of the oil out. Get the correct oil, about 1 litre, replace the plug and fill the bike to the correct level using a funnel. Stand the bike upright to check oil level. Do not screw oil dip stick in to test the level.

1999 durango 4x4 front differrential some how blows fluid out the vent line & all over the place.


The symptoms you describe appears to be Water contamination of the Diff. casing.
Take the vehicle for a run to the Auto store, and purchase 4x 1quart bottles of either 85/140 Heavy Duty gear Oil, or 75/90 Synthetic, whichever is currently in the system.
Come home and drain the diff. and the drive hubs when the oil is HOT/ WARM, until it stops dripping. Inspect the drain plug for metal debris, and feel inside the diff, with the little finger.[ don't get it stuck]. If everything is ok, refit the plug, remove the level plug and refill, until the oil just trickles out, then refit the plug.
On the hubs, rotate the wheel until the Drain/Level plug is facing down to empty. To refill to the correct level, face the D/L plug hole upwards, fill1/2 pint of similar oil as the diff, into the fill hole, and rotate the wheel 90 degrees, if no oil runs out, add oil sparingly, and repeat the process until it does. The Fr. and Rr diffs would normally be oil changed at the same time, including the 4wd, Transfer box.
Check your User Manual for the Total amount of oil that you will require to complete the project.
This should cure your problem.

Need to change oiltried to watch video followed instructions did not work


Uh Oh, makes me wonder what did happen.

On the bottom of the transmission, rear part behind the engine, are two drain plugs. The plug that is almost in the center of the oil pan is the transmission oil drain while the drain plug farther to front and on the left of the oil pan is the oil drain plug. If you remove this plug, the engine oil will drain out. Once it is finished draining, replace the plug and tighten.

On the right side of the bike right where the engine and transmission come together is a round cap with knurling on the edge. If you pull up on it, it will come out and has a dipstick attached. Pour three quarts of oil where the plug came from if you changed the filter too. If you didn't change the filter, only pour two quarts and 14 ounces of oil into the tank.

Now start the bike and let it run a few minutes and check the oil level. Notice on the dipstick that there are two full marks. One is FULL COLD and the ohter is FULL HOT. Top the oil off with the bike on the side stand, do not overfill.

If you drained the oil out of the transmission, you can refill it at the chorme end cap on the transmission on the right side of the bike. It has a plug in it that requires a 7/16" hex or allen key to remove. It too has a dipstick. Fill the transmission with 20-24 ounces of H-D transmission lube or Syn3 oil.

To change the primary oil, stand the bike as straight up as you can do safely. At the very rear of the primary down on the bottom, there is a drain plug. Remvove it and drain the primary oil. Remove the large round derby cover by removing the five screws that holds it on. Replace the drain plug and tighten. If you look at the clutch assembly, you see the aluminum outer shell. Just inside this is a black disc, the clutch diaphragm spring. Fill the primary with H-D primary lube or Syn3 until the oil level is just up to this level, do not overfill or the clutch will drag. It usually takes 36-44 ounces of oil.

To change the oil filter, simply screw the old one off, clean up the mess, and screw the new one on, tighten 3/4 after it makes contact.

Good Luck

Oil Change instructions for a 2007 FLHRS . Is there an online instruction link available for changing the oil on my 2007 FLHRS


I've never seen an online link but Chilton's sells a manual that will tell you most anything you want to know.

To change the oil, you must first drain the oil tank. Looking underneath the bike on the bottom of the transmission, you'll see two drain plugs. One will be in the middle of the tank and one will be towards the left side of the bike and slightly forward. The one on the left side and forward is your oil drain. Remove it to drain your oil.

While the oil is draining, change out the filter. Simply screw the old one off and install the new one. You may have to take the crank sensor out of the crankcase to get the filter out. Remove the screw holding it in, pull it out. When you get the new filter back on, reinstall the sensor. Don't overtighten the bolt holding the sensor in.

Now refill the oil tank. I think your FLHRS takes four quarts of oil. Put in three and check the level with the bike on the stand. Fill to the "Full Cold" mark is reached.

If you drain the transmission oil, remove the small plug and refill with 20-24 ounces of Harley Davidson trans lube.

If you wish to drain and change the primary lube, remove the drain plug on the bottom of the primary case and the "derby cover" over the clutch. Once drained, replace the drain plug and stand the bike straight up. Add 40-44 ounces of H-D transmission/primary lube or fill until level just comes to the bottom of the clutch spring.

Your bike originally came with Syn3 lubricant in all three places.

Good Luck.

Look for the oil dip stick. Now look under underneath the area of bike where the dip stick is. You'll see a round disc with a bolt. That is the drain plug. Now you found it lets begin.
1. Warm the bike up.
2. Turn bike off.
3. Take oil dip stick out.
4. Have your oil pan under the bike
5.. Unbolt drain plug. A spring and screen will come out keep them together.
6. After oil finished draining. Make sure Screen is clean before replacing back in with the spring.
7. Start the bolt in by hand then finish with tightening with socket.
8. Put oil dip stick back in. you're ready to go!

It takes 15W 40 ( .9 liters) Don't forget to press yes if this was helpful : )
