Look at the oil tank on your bike from the right side. At the bottom rear corner on the backside, you'll see a large diameter hose that comes out and goes down behind the transmission. Follow the hose all the way down behind the exhaust pipes and you'll see that it plugs onto a crossmember in the frame. Feel on the bottom side of this crossmember and you'll feel the drain plug. It screws into the crossmember from underneath it. Remove the plug and your oil tank drains. Refill with three quarts of 20W50 oil . Your transmission holds 20-24 ounces of oil.

Good Luck

How to fix oil over filled?

You can remove the oil by the drain plug again (of course) but if you are worried about destroying your drain plug O-ring, then you can buy a fluid removal tool from an automotive store. In the future, do not use over three quarts of oil for a change. There is always gonna be excess oil inside that you will not drain. Add 2 1/2 quarts, let the engine idle, then turn off your engine and set the bike level to check where the fluid is on the stick. Dry the stick and lay it aside then add enough oil to bring it to the top and yer done and done.... LiquiVac Topsider Oil Changer Oil Extractors Northern Tool Equipment

The RK oil tank is on the bottom of the transmission. the drain plug is near the center of the oil tank. There is also a transmission drain on the side of the oil pan.

I need to see a video of oil being changed on a 2005 softail deluxe

I doubt you're going to find a video of the oil being changed on a Softail. To change the oil on your Softail, look at the oil tank from the right side of the bike. At the lowest point on the backside of the tank, you'll see a large hose coming from the tank and running down behind the transmission. The hose comes back out from behind everything at the lower part of the frame behind the exhaust pipe and looks like it connects to a crossmember of the frame at the bottom. Feel underneath the crossmember directly underneath the hose and you'll feel a drain plug. Remove the plug and the oil drains out of the tank.

Good Luck

On the earlier Softails, the oil drain was a hose on the right side of the engine way down low behind the chrome cover on the right side of the transmission. The hose is held to the frame under a clip on the frame. There is a plug in the end of the hose. Loosen the hose clamp and pull the plug out.
