    On an '84 FXRS is the clutch a "DRY" clutch?

    There is no oil in the primary case?

    The case has a drain plug but according to the owners manual the "front" chain is lubed by drip from the engine and excess oil is evacuated back into the engine... Is this correct?

    I am at the point of putting this bike back on the road and getting ready to change the fluids and want to be sure that the primary needs no service except for chain tension/clutch adjustment.

    New tires are on, brake fluid changed, and the registration paperwork is in the mail...

    The early model was dry clutch, later versions had a wet clutch.

    Thanks for the quick responses guys...

    It is a chain drive so I assume dry clutch?
