Question about 2006 Harley Davidson FXSTB Night Train
What is the plug that is directly under the motor and when pulled 3 or 4 tbs oil came out? Should I replace the oil in the plug? If I don't, will it harm my bike?
It's a crankcase drain plug.
Almost everyone ignores it.
About the only time you'd use it is to drain the last little bit of oil before pulling the motor to split the cases.

Your oil pan where you normally drain the oil when changing it IS the crankcase. I would also drain any gas from the fuel tank(s) and put fresh gas in it, and you will probably need a new battery.

SOURCE: oil drain plug
It is located on the right side just under the oil tank ; if you follow the rudder hose that exits the rear right side of your oil tank it leads to the bottom of the frame under this is the oil plug. This hose has a plug clamped to the end of it or stuck into a prug that is welded to the frame.
After this unclamp and pull the plug to make sure that you have the dipstick out before pulling it loose.

The nut is a 5/8 socket, its almost directly under the seat on the bottom of the engine. Best to pull out the dipstick to drain the oil quicker. Use a new washer when you refit the sump plug to prevent leaks.
