In this tutorial video, we teach you how to perform routine maintenance, oil change, and safety inspection on your Harley Davidson prior to the Milwaukee-Eight engine (2016 & older models). It doesn't matter which model Harley you have, as you will be provided multiple video files covering different models. 

Note: Get our Harley Milwaukee-Eight Oil Change, Service, & Safety Inspection Video-2017 to present models!

What years & makes will this video work for exactly?

  • The video is good for all 2016 & older Harley engines & even CVO models. The V-Twin motors, oil plugs, air filters, oil filters, frames, brakes, belts, levers, and other components are basically the same for these models and for many years back to the early 2000's.
  • models are only slightly different as far as oil tanks and drain plugs. You will get multiple video files and we specifically show you the differences and locations in detail on these models.
  • If you get this video and you feel it does not pertain at all to your year or model of Harley then let us know and we will give you a full refund. Our mission here is to help bikers & that is our guarantee.
  • Don't get this video for: V-Rods and Harley "Street 500 & 750" models as they are different. 


Servicing your Harley Davidson yourself DOES NOT void your warranty in any way and that is a FACT! We have spoken directly to many Harley Davidson Service Managers and Mechanics over the years and nothing has changed. There are a couple of items you need to retain to keep your warranty intact and this is discussed within.

Much effort & detail went into filming & producing this video to give you the best possible views. You simply will not find a more detailed instructional video out there on this topic. We also give you some extra info and talk about other Harley-related mechanical items in this video.

This video will also even get you on track for servicing other models of Harley Davidson's but certain items might be in slightly different locations. It will give you the foundation you need to move forward and take it on!

Harley Davidson Dealerships charge $300 plus for this basic service and easy safety inspection every 5,000 miles. To do this service yourself, all you need is this video, synthetic oil, and oil filter that costs between $100-$125. Then all you need is 1 hour of your time and you are done!

Now, imagine all the time and money you will save by not taking your motorcycle to the dealership every 5,000 miles and paying $300 plus for something you can easily do for much cheaper at your home. And let's face it, nobody cares about your Harley as much as you do. 

For the low price of this video, you will be saving several thousands of dollars over the life or your Harley! Then you can put that money back into something worthwhile, like parts to dress up your Harley-right?-LOL

You don't need any real fancy tools, jack, or motorcycle lift for this. You can do this service and safety inspection right on the kickstand. We have done it this way for many years and serviced many Harley's. Here is a list of the simple tools you will need:

* Small Standard Screwdriver

* 3/8" Ratchet

* 1/4" Ratchet

* 3" Extension for 3/8" Ratchet

* 5/8" Standard Socket

* 3/8" Hex Socket for 3/8" Ratchet (or just a Hex Drive Tool)

* 5/16" Hex Socket for 3/8" Ratchet (or just a Hex Drive Tool)

* Torx Drive Tool w/ size T-27 (or a Torx Socket for a 1/4" Ratchet)

* Multi-type Torx Tool w/ size T-27

* Oil Filter Removal Wrench w/ Cutout-Here is the part description and Harley part number (End Cap Oil Filter Wrench-94863-10)($10.95)

* Oil Drain Pan

* Funnel

Further, we talk about specification and capacities and break it down for you and for real life applications. We keep it simple, as it does not need to be difficult. This is really an easy thing to do! You will be kicking yourself for wasting money and wondering why you never did it yourself before.

There are no surprises in this video and we are completely confident you will be able to service your Harley Davidson completely on your own after viewing this video. We truly hope it helps many Harley-Davidson owners save a ton of money and discover the joys of wrenching on their own bike!
