Have you ever started on a simple project that turned into a nightmare because you did something stupid? I have a couple of problems. My day started off bad when I went out to my bike and noticed the primary was leaking from the drain plug. I had the bike serviced at the dealer 1700 miles ago and haven't had any problems. I tightened the drain plug slightly and hopefully this solves that issue. Is it possible that it's a bad plug that needs to be replaced? Or do they tend to back out with the vibration? I certainly don't want to overtighten it. After tightening that plug I started on another project. My battery tray and exhaust mount bracket have begun to rust most likely due to battery acid. (the previous owner had some charging issues which I have since resolved). I am stripping them both down and re-painting. In order to remove the exhaust bracket I had to remove the exhaust. When I got the nut off of the rear exhaust I accidently dropped the nut! I watched it fall right between the left side of the tranny top cover and the inner primary right where the drive belt gear is. I looked everywhere and could not find it. I even used a magnetic pickup tool with no luck. I could easily buy another nut but I am concerned that this nut could be in a place that might cause trouble. My bike is a 2002 super glide. Is it possible for the nut to have slipped into the inner primary? I have never removed my cover so I wasn't sure if it it sealed in there or not. Is there anywhere that nut could be that would damage the drive belt? Should I remove the primary cover and look in there or is that a waste of time? Sorry this is so long I'm just frustrated!
