    2005 Road king Custom........Can someone please tell me the size of the phillips head screw which allows the oil to drain from the forks. I woild like to make a jig so as to make draining the fork oil easier. The manual does not mention the screw size. Thanx in advance

    Metric front end , gauges, starter, carb/parts and other parts. It's ASSEMBLED in USA, not entirely MADE in USA :D

    Nothing to be confused about, it's more profitable to sell imported parts than have then made here in America.:unsure
