Default Oil Change

When changing the oil in my wide glide I have a very hard time getting all of the oil out. Any idea why?

Did you pull the dipstick out prior to removing the drain plug. You are removing the one closest to the jiffy stand, right?

Also warm up the engine prior to draining
How do you know it isn't fully draining? It won't take the full capacity on a "wet" change

I've found with the bike sitting straight up in a wheel chock more oil will drain out. You do have to remove the dip stick on a dyna.

Be careful what you say about lube jobs, there are some touchy people here.
