    First Time be gentle...What are the flush hex plugs located on the front right between the frames, ok, I thought the first one was the transmission drain, nope, small quanity of what appears to be engine oil (like 2 tablespoon full) so I got smart and tried the second one, same thing, 2 tablespoon full of engine like oil. Yes I finally found the transmission drain between the shocks, my concern is the function of the plugs, they had red locktite, thought I needed to ask in case they are oil pressure adjustments or worse...

    If you refer to the two plugs on the filter mount, they are used in the manufacturing of the mount and serve no useful service parts.

    Check out the self help forums in what ever area that you are working in for some pics, videos and info on servicing Harleys.

    Are you talking about the plug in the bottom of the engine case?:52:
