    I changed the engine oil, Trans oil and primary today. This is the first softail I ever owned. Thanks to all the information I read on this site it went real well.
    I am not sure I would have found the transmission drain plug if not for information I gathered here. ( So well hidden between the shocks). It would have been real easy to overfill andy of the 3 holes if I just went by the book. Took my time ,studied the information given here ,and no problems at all.
    I am realy glad I joined this site. Thanks again for all the info.

    Good job Rich - self-service is the key to self-satisfaction when it comes to bike ownership. Keep wrenching away!

    Very cool, Rich - you will have greater insight and a safety margin that few other owners will enjoy. Thats the great thing about wrenching your own bike!

    Mark - Thanks!:newsmile026:
