    I apologize in advance; I don't have the manual for this bike. I want to change the oil; I purchased the filter and oil from the dealer and just watched the videos on this site for changing the oil. Since my bike is sooo old I wondered if the video is applicable; specifically, where is the motor oil drain plug? Does it face forward, and not down? All help is appreciated! PM me direct (if you can). Many thanks!

    On the softails, it is coming out the bottom of the oil tank which is the horseshoe shaped tank under the seat. Look under the bottom of the tank at the corner (low spot) and you'll see a drain line, just follow it.
