Drain plug for the primary/transmission is a 5/8 plug on the bottom side of the primary cover on the left side of the bike. The oil drain is not a plug. It's a hose that's clipped to the frame behind the motor near the rear motor mount. It takes a flat head screw driver to remove it from the frame clamp. To remove it from the frame just pull it off of the frame first.

Where is the oil plug on 2008 harley nightster

Transmission/primary or engine????

Engine drain plug is in a rubber hose that hangs down under the motorcycle transmission area at about the point where the kickstand rests in it up position. It has a worm clamp that you would loosen with a one quarter inch socket to allow you to pull the plastic plug out to let the engine oil drain out. The transmission/primary drain plug is on the bottom of the primary cover right below the middle of the clutch inspection (derby) cover. It is a 5/8 inch hex head plug

The factory battery in my 2008 XL1200N is 200 CCA, would it damage the starter or anything else by putting one in that has 310 CCA?

No, If it is a fit, all will be well. The larger capacity in CCA's is a good thing, but usually comes in a physically larger battery. The CCA's are a performance rating of the Cold-Cranking Amperage of an automotive type battery which is the amount of current a given battery can deliver for 30 seconds at zero (0) degrees F without dropping below a specified cutoff voltage. 1.50vdc per cell. The more CCA's the better. Also can be a length of time the battery will run a light and still maintain enough left over amps to turn the starter.
