Where is the oil drain on a 1995 Harley Davidson softail?
The 1995 Harley uses a dry sump oil system so there is no need for a drain plug on the crank case. Instead there is a black rubber hose directly in front of the rear tire that is connected to a plug on the frame with a hose clamp. Remove this hose from the plug and drain the oil tank thru the hose. Replace the hose and tighten the clamp. Then refill the tank with the correct amount of oil.
Unlike a car which uses a wet sump system and requires a oil pan, the Harley uses an oil tank. The oil is pumped from this thru the engine and back to the tank. Because of Harley having a dry sump and using a tank as described above, for those of you with early Evo's and Shovels, because the oil pump can only return so much oil to the tank, if your bike sits for a week or more, oil forcing its way past a valve to your dry sump motor, when started, will bypass and drain all over the ground. Common problem, nothing wrong, just remember to put a pan under before starting.
I don't think Harley has a retro fit kit to do the change, also the speedometer might not be calibrated for the XL, this speedometer runs off a speed sensor on the transmission and is sensitive. This speedometer can only be used on the FXDWG ('95-'98) Softails ('96-'98) FLHR/I ('95-'98) using retro fit Harley Davidson Part # 67418-99. Hope this helps......
i have a 1995 harley e- glide , recently the speedo quit i dont know if its electric or man how do i go about fixing i have a 1993 sportster with the same problem.....replace the speedo cable, it's a piece of cake and costs maybe 40 bucks. Ehmm...an electra-glide does not have a spedoocable like the sportster...check the cables behind the dials, or on the other end by the speed sensor.
1st check the compression on the rear cylinder to the compression on the front cylinder they should be about the same. 2nd With a spark indicator and the motor running check to make sure you have steady spark if not bad coil. 3rd if both of the above check out ok. replace your intake gasekts the one on the rear is leaking. I assumed that you have already change out your plugs and plug wires.
