How much oil and what type goes in a 2002 sportster primary

Resolved Question:

How much oil and what type goes in a 2002 sportster primary cover. A budy of mine added a quart whithout draining any and it is blowing oil out the breather tube. Is there an easy fix?

The only fix at this point would be to drain the primary case from the plug. Then you could refill with "Sportster Gear and Chain Oil". 1 full qt.

Any way to clear the breather tube so oil isn't blowing all over everything? I thought about blowing air back thru the tube but not sure it's a good idea.

I wouldn't recomend blowing air back, once you drain and refill the breather should stop leaking.
