Question about Motorcycles
Try the earth connections. Harleys have a very shakey motor, even with the Anti Vibe Mounts. Also check you are getting a feed to the indicators. although the earth is the most likely fault. You could try removing and refitting the indicators and cleaning the mounting points with some scotchbrite before re-assembly.

SOURCE: Changing oil myself on my Harley
Its simple. Softails drain from the oil tank, not the engine. Look directly under the bike in the area of the tank. U will see a hose with a plug. Remov the plug and drain the tank. Refill with 2.5 qts of oil and yer done

Either the stator plate, or coil is not getting power. First thing I would check would be power from the coil with an ohmmeter.

well i would make sure you have at least 12 volts at battery then make sure all ground at battery are tight and pos on battery is tight the at starter make sure the big wire has 12 volts or more at it then the little wire going to starter solenoid when you push but should get 12 volts at it if not you may have bad ignition or security system may be looking it out but the little key light may be flashing if it is hope this helps

The fork oil is a very specific job needing a manual and a special tool, I don't want to insult anyones mechanical knowledge but if you have never done it before, best to take somewhere else. Engine oil on the other hand is easy, the drain tube to any softail is on the right side by where the frame meets the swing arm, has somekind of plug in it. Start and run bike for a little while, long enough to get it warm but not hot. Remove fill plug and then remove plug in drain line. Using a peice of cardboard or something put in between filter and frame , directing the oil to your drain pan instead of where ever it goes. Put 1 qt oil back in (after everything is reinstalled) start the bike and make sure the oil light goes out, when it does shut bike off and fill to the point that when it is standing upright you get a little oil on the tip of your finger, over filling may result in loss of oil cap from pressure (been there)
