What is the drain plug below the transmission drain plug on a 2003 fxstb (night train). I thought it was the transmission drain plug but once I only got about 2 oz of fluid I realized it wasn't.

The softails use the horseshoe type oil tank. If you'll look just under the tank on the right hand side of the bike, you'll see a large hose that comes out of the bottom of the tank and goes behind the transmission and on down the frame to very bottom of the bike. There is a crossmember running under the transmission and this hose connects to it. It's behind the exhaust pipes. On the bottom of the crossmember, there is a drain plug that screws up into the crossmember. This is the oil drain.

Ride Safe.

I have a Harley Davidson 2000 Night Train. What is the thread size of the transmission drain plug?


The primary is a 1/8th inch pipe thread, they seem to strip out on a regular basis. Not sure if it's the same on the tranny, you could match them to see if you had to, i reckon. I haven't had to keensert one of those yet.

I"m trying to locate the


To drain the transmission, look at the chrome end plate on the transmission that the clutch cable runs into. This is the clutch release mechanism. Just below this, in the center the plate the chrome one bolts to, is a drain plug similar to a pipe plug. Remove the plug, transmission drains. Refill the transmission with 20-24 ounces of transmission lube.

Good Luck
