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.

4. then pull out the oil dip stick from engine
5. and clean the dip stick on a rag.
6. Put dip stick back in engine

8. If level is too low on dip stick and is not at full level go back to step 1

These steps ensures you avoid over filling the engine with oil

Tip for beginners
The 4 litre oil bottle is way too much oil for an engine to handle.
If you have a full 4 litre oil plastic bottle square shape . hold the bottle on its side to pour the oil out slowly and smoothly.

Where do i find the dip stck for the gear box oil . and where do i refill with new oil?


The Sportster does not have a dip stick for the transmission/ primary oil. You just pour one quart of oil in through the upper inspection hole.

On a Big Twin, there is a chrome endcap on the right side of the transmission. In the end cap, there is a plug that usually takes a large hex key or Allen wrench to remove. It has the dip stick on it. Stand the bike straight up to check the oil level. It should be between the two lines on the stick. The transmission holds 20-24 ounces of transmission lube.

Good Luck

How to change engine oil


Harley has changed the oil drain position on Sportsters a lot during this time period. Look for a hose that plugs onto the frame on the left side of the bike somewhere between the bottom of the battery box on down to the bottom of the frame behind the primary cover. Take the hose off and the oil drains. Change the filter as well, Add three quarts of oil. Check the level on the dip stick. The top mark on the stick is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is ''FULL COLD" . Keep the level between the two marks and do not overfill.

Good Luck

How to top up oil for sportster 883 low 2008 m0del


After changing the oil on every bike I own, (So that I know the level is correct.) I then make a dip stick for that bike. I use a T handled alen wrench since it is never a straight shot down to the oil. I insert it as far as I can at whatever angle it takes to bottom out. Then when I pull it out I wrap it with tape just above the oil line to create a full mark. From then on I always know where I'm at.

Crown vic oil change


Some of them have an oil plug at the front of the pan, as well as the regular one. You have to drain them both. The front one only holds a quart or less.

1989 sportster building pressure in oil tank


A little pressure is normal on the sportster. I have seen where if the oil tank is over full it can blow the dip stick out. Most of us who ride sportsters keep the level showing on the dip stick about midway between the low and full line. Doing this will also help with oil blow by out the air cleaner.

The dip stick is located on top of the oil tank. The drain line is at the bottom of the rear down tubes and looks like it goes into the frame. I run Mobile 1 20w50 V-twin full synthetic all the time.
