    I tried doing a search here, but couldn't find anything.

    I have a new to me '09 Utra Classic.
    What size is that allen head to remove the tranny dipstick?
    Does Autozone have a tool to attach to a socket wrench for this?

    Texan; while you have the tranny plug out - look for rub marks/chafing on the stick. There have been reports of wear/snapping from some riders. To be safe, I bought another plug & cut-off the stick so it's only a plug. Carry the other (stick) in my saddlebag, so it's available for checks...

    I wasn't aware of the problems, I'll check it out when I remove the dipstick.
    Thanks for the heads up Iceman.
