Checking the Oil on a Harley
Drive your Harley motorcycle onto a level piece of ground.
Allow the engine to cool and the oil to settle out of the piston chamber into the oil pan. This will take 20 to 40 minutes.
Pull out the oil dipstick on the right side of the engine. If you are sitting on the seat, the oil dipstick is located by your right ankle.
Wipe the oil off of the dipstick with the paper towel. Replace the dipstick into the oil dipstick hole completely and then pull it back out. Make sure the oil level is between the add oil and the full line.
