Default Location of transmission drain plug?

I have recently purchased a 1995 Heritage Softail FLSTN. Where is the transmission drain plug located? I have look under the bike - between the shocks and I do not see anything that would resemble a "plug".

There is a Torx screw on the end of the transmission, centered underneath the Clutch Throwout Cover (Other end of the Clutch Cable).....

It might be hidden behind your exhaust......

Put a drain pan underneath the trans, remove the Torx screw and drain the trans......

Makes it real simple, as the Oil Bag drain is to the left of it, you can do both at the same time.....

I'm changing mine today, looks like it's going to run our all over a wiring harness and plug.

Yes it will, good placement for the harness huh? I put a piece of cardboard under the trans to divert the oil into the drain pan, still a little messy though.
