The trans plug is under the trans pan which has a smaller dark plug. That is what I thought. I drained it from the plug that is more chrome looking toward the outside of left side of bike.

I'm a idiot. Think I got it figured out. I drained the primary. Anybody know how to fill. Looks like I take off the cover. Not sure from there. Looks like I can use same screamin eagle synthetic oil in primary. What a disaster.

to fill the primary, take the derby cover off and with the bike on kickstand I fill my fat bob to the rim right before it would spill out. There is a special funnel thing they make for the primary but I just carefully fill with a regular funnel. Hope this helps... yes you can use the same oil.

Take the derby cover off and i put a piece of 2 by 6 under the kickstand and pour a qt of HD Formula 1 primary\tranny fluid in exposed hole.Replace the gasket if it needs it and tighten screws to spec and becareful they strip easy. Oh and get a manual.

Just put one quart back in the primary, the oil drain plug is the only one facing to the left side of the bike.
