There should be a removable plug in th oil tank. Jut pull it out and look in, the oil level should be just below the neck of the hole the plug goes in.

The trans lube is the same as the primary lube. As long as the primary fluid is touching the bottom of the clutch basket with the bike sitting upright, you are good. You will have to remove the clutch (derby) cover on the primary cover to check the oil level.

I have a 2005 Sportster 883, Always used shop to change oil & xmission fluid. Any problem using a standard 20w50 oil and 80w90 xmission fluid and do the work myself?


Hi Ron, I have no trouble with you doing your own oil changes but why would you want to use someone elses oil that was not designed for your Sportster to save a few pennies? If you needed a blood transfusion would you want it from a family member or some stranger? For more information about your question please visit the websites below. Good luck and have nice day.

Does an 01 sportster 1200 have an oil bath. clutch.This persons tried to change his own oil pulled two different plugs one oil was clean one was was not. It has a hard time shifting now


Yes it does. It should take about a quart of oil in the primary. Some primary covers have an oil level indicator hole at the very back of the primary just bit above the lowest point. The drain plug is underneath the primary. If you have an "oil level plug", remove it and add oil until it comes out of the hole. If you can't find a level hole, drain the primary and refill with one quart of oil

Oil in air filter


Check all your vacuum lines for kinks and/or blockage. Most of the bikes I've had this problem with are due to a blocked vacuum line.

Oil amount


It's going to hold approx 3 quarts. The dipstick is irrelevant, the level should be just bellow the bottom of the filler tube, about a half inch, so you should be able to see the oil when you remove the cap. I'm not sure why HD even puts the dipstick on the cap.
