I would buy a manual first before you start your service its cheap insurance against mistakes. I would check out ebay for your back rest

3.5 qts oil
22 oz tranny
1 qt primary

Can add through chain inspection cover to make filling primary easier.

As a suggestion: get the HD Service Manual for that make and model year (local dealer or Zanotti's or J&P Cycles). Then go to Amazon and hunt up the Clymer manual for that make and model. I've found that the Clymer one is more user-friendly and the HD one has more technical stuff, and that working together they made my most recent oil change a lot smoother.
