I just bought my first Harley a 2000 Dyna Wide Glide, i am a Mechanic but have never serviced a bike before. Is there a good site for finding the service intervals and learning what fluids to use and where to drain and fill them?

Go to this site http://www.bikebandit.com Click OEM parts. Choose H-D and your year and model of your bike. Click on rear wheel. It may not show the the '04 FXDWG but you can try looking a year earlier or later to find what you need.
Harley has been moving the fuse panel around since 2000. On the older Wide Glides, it was behind the "electical box" cover on the left side of the bike. That's the cover just to the rear of the coil cover. But, you might want to take the seat off and look there as well.
You didn't say what model bike. I do not believe that Harley ever published a single book of how to service all their models. You must have a service model for each model group.
Now that seems difficult but really it's not. Harley groups their bikes into about three models of Big Twins and Sportsters. Sportsters are all the same, the same applys to the Softail line, the Dyna line, and the Dresser line. Take the Dyna series. This line inclues the Dyna Wide Glide, the Dyna Convertable, the Dyna Low Rider, and the Dyna Super Glide. They all service the same way. It's simple just remember how much oil goes in each one, the transmission is the same (except Sportster), and primary quantity. Since Harley went to the Syn3 oil that they use everywhere. It's simple these days.
Now, for servicing the front forks you need the specific service manuals because of the differences in the front fork assemblies.
Is the clutch cable adjusted correctly, you may need to adjust the cable so that the clutch is released more fully, there will be an adjuster on either end of the clutch cable - adjust it so that the cable is tighter - but there should be a little bit of play left in the clutch -
if this does not cure the problem you could have some gearbox damage,
The bike is still under warranty so take it to a harley dealers and have them look at it.
