How do you change the oil on a 2005 Dyna Wide Glide?

Last Updated: 11th October, 2021

Unscrew the oil filler cap from the oil tank. Remove the oil drain plug from the bottom left side of the motor's crankcase with a 5/8-inch socket. Place an oil pan beneath the drain plug and allow the oil to drain completely. Remove and replace the drain plug's O-ring with a new O-ring.

Similarly, how often should I change the primary oil in my Harley? The Evolution Sportsters have wet clutch and primary drives. It is recommended to change the oil at 1,000 miles, then every 10,000 miles after that. The manufacturer recommends using 20w50 oil.

In the manual it clearly states the drain plug is on the left front side of the engine.

What oil should I use in my Harley primary?

Use whatever dyno oil is on sale- 5w30, 10w30,whatever. ATF works fine and is helpful in determining if oil leaks are engine, primary or tranny. The splash lube environment in the primary doesn't require a super special oil. I use HD Formula+ and have good results.

Book calls for 4 quarts but Put in 3.5 quarts with filter change and then run bike until it gets hot and recheck. Because the oil is Synthetic is will not expand. If you run bike at highway speeds and oil starts coming out of the air cleaner, you've put too much in the engine.
