It's 4 quart capacity DRY. Most of the time you're only going to get about 3.5 quarts back in because you never really get all the old oil out unless you crank the motor over while trying to drain it....I DO NOT SUGGEST DOING THIS.

How many quarts of oil for a oil change with new filter

Three quarts. Check the oil with the bike on the sidestand. Start the engine and allow it to run for 15 seconds. Shut it down and check the oil. There sre two lines on the dipstick. The top line is "FULL HOT" and the lower line is "FULL COLD". As long as the oil is between the two lines, do not add oil.

Good Luck

1st time changing oil on 2005 classic. looking for the drain plug also how much oil just for engine not trans, thanks

The oil tank for the engine is located on the bottom of the transmission. There are two drain plugs under the transmission. The engine oil drain is the drain plug closest to the front left of the oil pan. Slowly remove the plug and allow just a bit of oil to drain out so you can identify it as engine oil. It should be black, not clear. The engine holds three quarts of oil in the tank. Add the oil and then check it with the dipstick with the bike on the side stand. The dipstick has two marks on it. The upper mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Do not overfill.

Good Luck
