Remove the outer primary cover on left side. Don't forget to drain the oil first. Using a large pair of snap ring pliers, remove the clutch adjuster plate from center of clutch assembly. Remove compensator sprocket nut (very tight) and the clutch hub nut (left handed threads) and remove nut from bolt on primary chain adjuster. Grab the compensator sprocket and clutch assembly and lift out of inner primary.

If it's fuel injected, the dealer will have to set the idle speed for you unless you have another type of computer on the bike.

SOURCE: How much oil does a
To the best of my knowledge, your Duece takes three quarts of oil with a filter change. The transmission holds 20-24 ounces of oil. And, your primary takes 38-44 ounces of oil.
Your oil tank has a dipstick in it. Fill the oil tank until the level is just above the lower line with the bike on the stand. The lower line is "FULL COLD" and the upper line is "FULL HOT". Do not overfill.
The transmission is the same way, On the right side clutch release cover, there's a plug that takes a 3/8" Allen or Hex key to remove. It too has a dipstick marked the same way the oil tank dipstick is marked. Check the oil in the transmission with the bike standing straight up.
In the primary, you fill the oil level to where it just touches the lowest part of the clutch spring. The outer clutch housing is bright aluminum. Inside this is a round dark colored piece of metal. This is the clutch spring. Fill or check the oil with the bike standing straight up. Do not overfill as it will make your clutch drag and you will not be able to find neutral with the engine running.

Remove any saddlebags or whatever might be in the way as to impede your access to the rear brake caliper. Remove the two bolts that holds the brake caliper in the caliper bracket. Set the caliper aside so that the hose is not crimped or the caliper is hanging by the hose. The hose can be damaged on the inside and cause the brake to fail to release.
Look at the pads and the anti-rattle hardware and see how it all fits into the caliper bracket. Once you know how it goes, replace the pads and hardware.
Now, you must compress the piston back into the caliper. I use either a large C-clamp or a large pair of slip joint pliers to compress the piston into the caliper. Use rags or thin strips of wood to protect the paint and finish on the caliper. Once you have the piston fully compressed, replace it on the caliper bracket while being careful not to disturb the pads or hardware. Insert and tighten the screws to 25 foot pounds of torque.
Slowly depress the rear brake foot pedal and release it. Continue to do this until you get a full firm pedal. Test the brakes before you ride the bike. Failure to test for proper braking action prior to riding the bike can lead to severe injury or death. Make sure you do this job correctly.
