It's underneath right where the Service Manual shows it. The other two
drain the radiator and automatic transmission so steer clear of those.

Trade it in for a Miata, an oil change is cheaper.

You're used to bending over, so get back on yer knees where you belong
and take a gander.
Then, with a hot wrench, remove all nuts-n-bolts you can see until
fluids starts coming out.
STOP, when you find that one!

Remember to use a ZIPPO lighter for additional light.

Make sure the gas tank is kept OPEN so that it can ventilate properly.

Well, if he only gets about 22 oz's then he's not done, keep pulling
bolts out til he gets approx 3 quarts more.

Fuck that, just bring the bike over and I'll change the oil for free.
Anything else? How about some new tires? Sit down over there and drink some
of my beer while I get that bike all fixed up. I don't mind your barging in
here knowing nothing about motorcycles or Harleys. It's not as if we don't
know you, grouper. Your the fish that unfortunately didn't get away. You
flop around in that net a spell.

Yeah that's sooooo funny........ you provide goods and
services to the public for free do ya????

Let's see:

Synth3 oil (if ya use that kind, I do)- 3.5 quarts - @ $31
O-ring for drain plug - @ $.95
Oil Filter (black one, I like black) - @ $8.95

Total = Little over $44 including sales tax.

So.... @ $26 for the labor to do an oil change.....and since
the tech's probably on commission......

Hmmm......tech has to go out to the lot, find the bike,
start it and warm it up (if it ain't already).....bring it
into the shop, put it on the lift, raise it to a comfy level
so he's not crawling around on the frikkin floor.....get a
drain pan, drain the oil, pull off the filter. Go to the
parts counter, present work order....get the oil and filter,
go back to work bay......install filter, put new o-ring on
drain plug...smear on a smidgen of thread sealer, pour in
three and a half quarts of oil.....start it and check for
leaks and that ya have proper oil pressure.......drain and
toss old filter, dispose of oil. Take bike either to wash
bay or back out to parking lot, return keys and paperwork to
counter.....whew.......

I can see how that might take a 1/2 hour or 45 minutes......

Not a bad price really to change the oil on the bike seeing
how someone has to provide the tools, the building, the
insurance, the lights, etc., and then someone has to dispose
of the old oil and the old nasty filter............

Where do ya get yer's done for free??????? &lt;sfsf&gt;

It's on the bottom. There are two similar ones. Be sure you get the
correct one out. I'll let you figger out which one that one is. You'll
know if you screwed up. When I can't remember, I just look in my owner's
manual. [BIG FREAKIN' HINT HERE]

He's got an old Road King after all, so you had best steer him clear of

&gt;

Welllll........

I do my own, mainly cause I've got a garage fulla tools and
nothin' else better to do.

The parts cost me the same $44.

But.....took me about 1/2 an hour to drive over to the
dealer to pick them up. Got about mosta the way through the
job and realized I didn't have a frikkin filter in the box,
check the invoice...I didn't pay fer one either. Back in the
truck, another 1/2 an hour trip to the dealer to get the
filter.......good thing I don't live very far away.

Of course I did have 6 qts of oil in the box, a derby cover
gasket, coupla drain plug o-rings, a primary cover gasket,
and one a them neat new primary chain self adjusters....

Got to get a second look at the girl at the register with
the big tits, 6 rings in her ear, two in her lip, three in
her eyebrow, and a stud in her tongue......

Only did all day in the (hot) garage spending quality time
with my bike....had the fairing on and off a couple times
trying to find the best spot for the little XM radio antenna
to reside for the strongest signal......

Ran through the checklist and see that I have to go back to
the dealer....forgot the frikkin spark plugs......

Plus, if it is a decent shop at all, they will do an inspection of the
visible parts, check lights, horn, etc, check tire pressures, make sure
you're riding off on a safe bike.

If you want cheap, you don't go to a dealer, no matter what you are on.

If all you are doing is changing oil, go for it.

But if you want a professional to take a look at your bike every now and
then, $75 don't sound bad.

I just paid $285 for a 5k service. Worth it? Was to me, the big needed
it and I don't have my tools here in Sacramento to do any work myself.
They also found a bad motor mount and changed it under warranty. Would I
have found it? I didn't know it was bad.

By now you've probably realized this is not always the most helpful
place on the internet. But in all the smart ass'n the one take-away for
you is to get the shop manual. They're cheap and you'll only need one.
To save you some grief, always do a google search before asking a
question because unless your name is Len, spoon feeding info is held in
low regard.

Cripes man! First close the friggen door, and run the AC only when you are
working on the scoot! Ya don't need to run it 24/7!!
I probably run mine a total of one week a year, but it is worth every penny
of the hundred dollars it cost me to put it in!
When I got home tonight I turned on the AC as I was figuring on heading back
out to the shop, then the lazy-boy grabbed my ass! At least mamma's car is
comfy!

&gt; Cripes man! First close the friggen door, and run the AC only when you are
&gt; working on the scoot! Ya don't need to run it 24/7!!

Guess ya don't know that I live in hell.........I'll be
working on the wife's truck tomorrow. Suppose to be 112,
will be closer to 120 in my garage......

&gt; I probably run mine a total of one week a year, but it is worth every penny
&gt; of the hundred dollars it cost me to put it in!

Hundred bucks??? I'd have to relocate an electric panel, cut
a hole in a wall..all kindsa BS........little more than a
hundred bucks. Either that or just leave a door open to the
house. Then I'd have a pack of little frikkin dogs under my
feet all day........

And I like leaving the garage door open when I'm working out
there........sunlight is great to help ya see what yer
doing. That's in addition to the lighting upgrades I've made
out there since we bought the place.

Oh yeah........I'm unable to run my AC only one week out of
the year......it's been well over 100 for about 3 months
now, and will stay that was for a couple more months.

&gt; When I got home tonight I turned on the AC as I was figuring on heading back
&gt; out to the shop, then the lazy-boy grabbed my ass! At least mamma's car is
&gt; comfy!
&gt;

Hell the water in my pool is almost 100
degrees.......&lt;sfsf&gt;, I've gotta spray it in the air at
night to cool it down for the next day.

Again with the AC/Delco. I had to drive the cage in today, as I'm
getting the new paint job color sanded, so I can't check the number on
the plug, but they work great in my bike (93 Evo).

The reason I use this AC/Delco crap stems from the fact that I work
for a Car Group, as a network dude. My office is right outside the
Chevrolet parts counter. When I need a tune, I just have the guys set
me up with four quarts of Royal Purple 15W50 (not that voodoo
motorcycle crap, but the car stuff), a PF53 filter and a set of plugs.
I dig an O ring out of the little drawer and I'm all set to go... at
10% over cost.

But I did find that the plugs were the cat's meow. Quite by accident,
but I could physically tell that the bike ran better than it did with
HD or the Splitfires, or anything else that I used to use. I suspect
that the Delco application just defaults to a spec that I could get
with any other plug, if I knew what I was looking for.

bike. Hell the jiffy lube even once overs the truck (tires lights, even
the horn). They usually try to sucker me into a new air filter.

I don't think that the master mechanic is looking over shit on an oil
change at H-D. The guy doing oil changes is probably 6 months away from
going to the harley school for certification whatever the frick that is
called in daytona?)

Lets see my last oil change bill...

K&amp;N filter $13
4 quarts 20-50 $12
Little rubber plug ring: local shop gives free

okay, thats 25 bucks

It'll cost more next time when I change the tranny and primary.

HTH ;)

Already priced the parts out for ya......

The Jiffy Lube is using bulk oil out of a tank.....what
brand?? and certainly NOT synthetic........

What kinda filter??? Oh, it's a no name brand filter worth
about a buck.

And they pay their people minimum wage (or damn near), what
kinda quality do ya think yer getting there????

Ya got a great job done there buddy......

No labor??? You give the guy a blowjob so he wouldn't charge
ya labor??????

What's the difference in overhead between the little local
indie shop ya say ya went to and the full service dealership
the OP says was going to charge him $70??

Somebody still has to get paid to perform the labor........

&gt;
&gt; It'll cost more next time when I change the tranny and primary.

&gt; Again with the AC/Delco. I had to drive the cage in today, as I'm
&gt; getting the new paint job color sanded, so I can't check the number on
&gt; the plug, but they work great in my bike (93 Evo).
&gt;
&gt; The reason I use this AC/Delco crap stems from the fact that I work
&gt; for a Car Group, as a network dude. My office is right outside the
&gt; Chevrolet parts counter. When I need a tune, I just have the guys set
&gt; me up with four quarts of Royal Purple 15W50 (not that voodoo
&gt; motorcycle crap, but the car stuff), a PF53 filter and a set of plugs.
&gt; I dig an O ring out of the little drawer and I'm all set to go... at
&gt; 10% over cost.
&gt;
&gt; But I did find that the plugs were the cat's meow. Quite by accident,
&gt; but I could physically tell that the bike ran better than it did with
&gt; HD or the Splitfires, or anything else that I used to use. I suspect
&gt; that the Delco application just defaults to a spec that I could get
&gt; with any other plug, if I knew what I was looking for.

They don't list them for the EVO anymore either. That's why I have to
have the number off the ones that are in the bike. I suspect that the
plug is the same for both engines, but I could be wrong. You could
check by seeing if the other plugs (NKG et al) show the same plug for
both.

OTOH, you could just ignore my Delco jive.

Shit, it was frikkin 112 today, hotter in my garage. Tore
down the front of the little Nissan truck V-6. Couldn't get
the crank pulley bolt off....tried holding the pulley with
a strap wrench (as book suggested)....actually made one trip
to Ace Hardware for a crappy strap wrench ($25), another
trip to Sears for a better one (which was $15)...boogered
both of them up, neither worked.

Finally asked my neighbor for the loan of his impact
gun.....didn't think it would work, mine hadn't (yeah but
mine's 30+ years old).....his zipped it right off.

Took my neighbor a beer, had one too........

Got it most of the way back together.....all I've got left
is the radiator and the shroud.

Lower hose I bought is the wrong one, will deal with it in
the morning. Radiator (outside of it) is completely packed
with shit......don't know if I'm gonna waste my time trying
to clean a 6 year old radiator with 92K miles on it...or
just run buy a new one.....I've got a buddy owns a radiator
shop. No wonder she was bitching about her AC not working
worth a shit.........no air flow, it's a wonder it wasn't
getting a tad warm.

Also spotted a leaking oil sending unit when I dropped the
skid plate so I could undo the trans cooler lines. Will deal
with that too......

Might as well take it Friday morning for frikkin tires
too......shit, how did her truck get to be in such bad shape??

Dunno about the TC, but the SE heads I ran on Stokely's Evo used the 12mm
ones. Seems to be the direction the MFMC is going.
