Unfortunately it sounds like you may have stripped the sump plate of its threads, have a look at the bolt and note the condition of the threads. There's not a lot you can do except remove sump & replace or if you have a 'handy' engineering shop they maybe able to weld and re-tap to the correct thread.

I am doing oil changes on 2007 Dyna Low Rider and do not have book. Need to know location of the engine and transmission drain plug and quantities of oil.


One litre in the primary of Formula+, one liter Formula+ in gearbox, approx. 2.4 litres engine oil HD360 in sump. Look underneath and find sump. Engine oil drain plug is on left side of sump near bottom and back and is in horizontal. Gearbox drain plug is to the right side of sump about half way and points up. Torque is 14 lbs-ft with DRY CLEAN threads. Use new O rings on bung plugs, part #:11105. Warning: very easy to strip these threads.

Fuel injected 2008 triumph america , loss of power and fire in central part of nearside exhaust


Instructions
    • 1 Clean the underside of the motor with soap and water to remove any dirt and oil build-up that could contaminate the motor.
    • 2 Warm your motorcycle to operating temperature by starting the motor and letting the oil warm up or by taking a short ride. The oil will expand slightly and flow better to give you a more accurate reading.
    • 3 Park the motorcycle on a level surface and turn the ignition switch to the "Off" position. Place your Triumph on its center stand, if equipped with one, to provide additional stability.
    • 4 Place your catch basin directly below the oil drain plug on the underside of the motor and remove the drain plug with the appropriately-sized socket. Allow the oil to drain until the flow has reduced to a thin trickle then replace the drain plug.
    • 5 Locate the oil sump drain plug and center your catch basin below it. Remove the drain plug and allow the oil to drain until the flow is reduced to a thin trickle then replace the drain plug. Replace the drain plug. Note that this step is only required on certain models, such as the Thunderbird Sport and older "oil-in-frame" models.
    • 6 Remove the oil filter with an oil filter wrench and discard the old filter.
    • 7 Fill the new oil filter with fresh oil, coating the inner lip of the filter lightly with oil to provide a stronger seal before screwing the filter onto the motor. Tighten the filter by hand until it is secure.
    • 8 Add your engine oil into the oil tank. Replace the cover and wipe away any spilled oil.
    • 9 Locate the engine sump bolt, located at the base of the cylinders and the carburetors. Remove the bolt and add half a quart of oil into the sump. Replace the bolt and wipe away any spilled oil. Note that this step is only required on older "oil-in-frame" models.

to change the oil you need to remove the sump plug, located on the underside of the sump. the plug is a bolt on the botom of the engine. once the bolt is removd, oil will drain out rapidly so have a container ready to catch the oil.once drained put the sump plug back in and refil with new oil.

Oil change


Check your owners manual for the location of the sump screw. If you don't have a center stand, or someone to help by holding the bike so it's straight up, you can put some wood under the kickstand later. It's best to do this with the engine slightly warm, so run it for a minute or so. Then loosen the oil filter and then open the sump screw, making sure you have a basin underneath to catch the oil. Take out and clean the sump screw and remove the old oil filter. Open the place to fill the oil too. When all the oil is drained, put a thin film of oil around the gasket on the new filter and screw it on following the instructions that come with the filter. Then replace and tighten the sump screw. Carefully fill the machine, being sure to not overfill. This is when you need the machine to be upright so you can check either the dipstick or sight glass. When you've filled to the correct level start the bike and make sure there are no leaks. Then check your level again. You should be good to go.
