    I forgot to inspect the primary chain for adjustment when I did my 3 hole fluid change. If I pull the inspection plate, will I lose the fluid?

    Not unless you overfilled it.

    Pulling the inspection cover and not the derby cover will never loose any oil.

    Pulling the derby cover, it's easy to put a piece of 2X4 under the stand to be sure.

    It will be a lot easier to see what you are doing in the inspection cover if the bike is upright
