Where is the oil drain plug on2009 heritage softail classic

Although I don't normally work on bike newer than 2000 models, I don't think they've changed the oil drain on the Softail models. Look at the bottom of the horse shoe type oil tank from the right hand side of the bike. You should see a line or hose going down somewhere behind the transmission instead to forward to the engine. Follow this line down to the lower part of the frame and you'll see a plug in the line. If you take this plug out, the oil in the tank will drain out. Capacity 3 quarts H-D Syn3 20W50 oil

Good Luck

Where is the oil drain on the 2003 Heritage Softail Classic?

on the right side of the bike where the swing arm and frame meet look for a 5/8" head drain plug pointing straight down that is your drain for the engine oil.
