Editing Step 2 — Draining the Oil

Step Type:

Drag to rearrange

Unlike most vehicles, the Harley Sportster Evolution Engine has an oil drain tube, not a plug.


Loosen the house clamp with a Flathead Screwdriver. Do not remove the tube until you have your drain pan in position.

Removing the cap/dipstick from your oil tank at this point may help your oil drain faster.


When the oil slows to a drip, replace the hose. Do not tighten the clamp yet, we will return for that later.
