Oil Drain plug

Just to make sure before I start the oil drain plug for just a oil change is the one that comes out horizontal. If sitting on bike on the front left corner of the pan?

Yep.

We strongly suggest that folks get the HD Factory Service Manual that covers their bike model and year. Even for simple thing, the manual will give you the comfort that what you are doing is the right thing to do.
