Where the Hell do people come up with these answers. Dude your motor takes 20/50 or synthetic oil. For your Evo I recommend Harley 20/50. Your Primary and Transmission takes Harley trannie and primary oil. Unless a person runs Harley Synthetic then all 3 cases can be run the same oil. You do not have to run Harley Brand. any air cooled motorcycle brand will work. amsoil is one and alot of people run red line in their tranny. But to keep it simple and sweet You can run Synthetic in all 3 cases...If running 20/50 thats for engine and Harley trannie and primary is different.

    I now see that you have a twin cam so run Synthetic and it will be the same in all 3 cases Motor, Primary, Trannie.

If you use Harley oil from the dealer, you use 20-50w oil for the engine and they use special formulated lube that you use in both the transmission and primary,Some people do use the same oil in the engine,tranny and primary, I would not recommend it

2003 Fatboy while winterizing drained the oil very little came out however there was oil in filter..New filter,filled with oil started sounds like usual then the oil shot out of the cap where you insert...


On the softail model Harley Davidson's the oil tank is external and sits up higher than the engine crank case and oil pump. when these bikes sit for an amount of time the oil gravitates from the tank to the crank case. starting may seem sightly harder and seem like the battery is going dead. the bike should be started in knowing that you had oil in it to start with and no giant leak puddle underneath of it. warm up the engine and then drain the oil out of the tank. the reason why your filler cap popped off is because you had probably 2 1/2 to 3 quarts to much engine oil in the bike. so drain the oil from the tank at the drain pug at the bottom of the hose on the high (right side ) of the bike where the swing arm meets the frame (it is a 5/8 socket) put the drain plug back in run the bike for about 5 minutes inspecting with a flashlight continuously that oil is circulating back into the tank. then dran it again and replace with new oil.

1972 shovelhead engine needs spark plugs and oil!


I have a 75 FLH and I use the Bosch Platinum WR8DP if you have the long plug if you have the short one it is W8AP, they are an exelent plug. As for the oil I use Rev-Tech grade 60 but you should stick with one kind of oil and for a FLH it is 4 qts.

Oil in airfilter 883 sportser


Everyone has oil in their airfilters. Harleys are engineered to vent the crankcase thru the carberator. Some oil will get into the filter. There is nothing wrong and thats not whats causing your bike to run ruff unless u have a paper filter thats clogged with oil, in which case I would recommend replacing it with an after market filter that is designed to be oiled like from K & N which are washable and reusable .

Check the breather ports on the heads. If they are not venting correctly, partially plugged, or you don't have a large enough diameter tubing for the ventilation it will cause this.

98 fatboy engine noise.


Harley's do run hot, anywhere from 220 to 240 normally, and a little hotter this time of year. I suggest running a straight weight oil, and a little heavier weight in the summer. I use Valvoline VR-1 30 weight most of the year, and 50 or 60 weight in the hot summer, and I use Lucas 20w50 primary/trans for the primary and tranny. I don't bother with the extremely high prices of the HD oils. For the whining noise, you need to determine which side of the engine it's coming from. Whining will almost always be in the bottom end. There's nothing in the top end that should whine, and if there is whining from the top, it's usually an air leak around the carb. Start by checking the fluid levels in the tranny, and primary. These are the two most common areas to pick up a whining noise. If it's coming from the left, it's going to be in the primary, and usually this is caused by low fluid levels. From the right, it's going to be either the tranny, low fluid, or the oil pump. The oil pump is a gear type system. If you're running a light weight oil, say a 10w40 or HD 20w50, when the engine heats up and the oil thins, it can cause the oil pump gears to whine a bit, especially in the summer heat. So, check the fluid levels, if they check good, then change the oil, since the summer is coming to an end, go with a straight 30 weight. This should clear up the whining noise. If it doesn't, get back to me with the exact location the noise is coming from, and we'll go to the next level of diagnosing the whine, but I believe that this will cure it.
