Question about 2003 Harley Davidson XLH Sportster 883 Hugger
Bob, I'll be glad to help. If the plug you took out was at the lowest point of the primary housing on the left side of the bike, you indeed drained the transmission and primary. They are both lubricated with the same oil. You need to put a quart of oil back into the primary through the inspection hole at the top of the primary cover. Use a Harley Davidson recommended fluid.
Now, to drain the oil, look for a large diameter hose that plugs onto the frame somewhere below the battery on the right hands side of the bike. They've usually got one of those hose clamps that take the "hose clamp pliers" to open. This will drain the oil. If you're still not sure, contact me directly at this address. wd4ity at bellsouth.net
Good luck and thanks for your service
