You must be referring to the engine oil that resides in the motor, as opposed to that which is stored in the oil resevoir (frame). I can't think of a bike without a drain on the engine, with or without additional storage in the frame/tank.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
Oil spilled out on the bolt you removed? Hope to know more. It can be just a pan bolt that secures the oil pan. Just put it back and don't you worry. It will not harm your bike.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I'm not real sure where this plug is that your talking about but I think it's a plug to drain the oil from the cam chest when you're working in that area. A Harley engine is a dry sump engine. This means that it pumps the oil into the engine which lubricates everything and then the oil is pumped back out into a remote tank. It does not carry oil in the engine. However is does have oil in the primary case and the transmission. As long as you didn't drain either of these, you should be fine. Just fill the oil tank with oil and start the engine. Let it run for a few minutes and then shut it down and recheck the oil level. Check the oil with the bike on the side stand. The upper mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is 'FULL COLD". As long as the oil level is between these two lines, do not add oil to the tank. Do not overfill. Go to http://www.bikebandit for a view of your engine.
