How to Check the Oil Level in a Harley Heritage Classic

by Zyon Silket

The Harley-Davidson Heritage Classic uses a 2.0-gallon oil tank positioned under the seat, directly behind the rear cylinder on the engine. With high-compression motorcycles, like the Harley-Davidson Heritage Classic, it is important to check oil levels before every start to ensure your oil tank is full at all times.

Step 1

Locate the oil filler cap on the right side of the oil pan. The cap is on the top half of the tank, pressed into a short tube welded onto the tank.

Step 2

Pull the cap out of the tube welded onto the tank. The dipstick is secured to the bottom of the cap.

Inspect the stick for the oil-level line cut into it. Add oil if the oil level is below the oil-level line. Replace the filler cap. Do not add oil if the oil level is above the oil-level line. Replace the filler cap.
