    I have a 2000 Deuce and there are 2 drain plugs, one for the oil tank and that is flex hose that goes to the right side of the swing arm and at the bottom of that hose is a drain plug. Also on the bottom of the crank case in the middle is a small drain plug. If I remember there is a little rubber o-ring on the one an a another little gasket ring on the crank bolt.

Where are the oil plug and transmission plug on 2006 fxstdi softail deuce

The engine oil plug is on the bottom of the right rear side of the frame, near the swingarm. It has a hose on top that goes to a connection at the frame. There is a bolt at the bottom that you remove to drain the oil. The trans drain plug is at the bottom of the trans housing, between the rear shock absorbers.

Front shocks are vary soft. drained and filled to spec

If the dampening action is still to soft for you, you'll have to drain the forks again and this time put a heavier weight oil in them. If you put 20 wt. oil in last time, try 30 wt. this time. Always use a good quality "fork oil" never just plain engine oil.

Location for engine oil drain plug and where is the plug to drain the transsmission 200 fxstd deuce

The oil drain for the engine oil is a hose that comes off the lower backside of the oil tank on the right side of the bike. It goes down behind the transmission and comes out on the frame down low on the swingarm about where the rear end of the shocks connect. It has a plug in the end of the hose. On some of the later models, this hose connects to a crossmember on the frame with the plug directly on the underside of the hose where it connects. The transmission oil drain is a small pipe plug, 1/8" pipe plug, on the end of the transmission just below the chrome release mechanism housing behind the exhaust system. It takes a Torx key to remove the plug. The transmission holds 20-24 ounces of H-D Syn3 20W50 synthetic engine oil.

Good Luck

Require info........2001 deuce the drain plug for the oil on the bottom, there was discussion re the right drain (do not confuse with transmission drain) and it appears that the drain plug on this bike is...

I think that this may have been changed after it left the factory. Was this bike new to you or was there a previous owner?
I am wondering if someone did this so they would know what plug was engine oil and what was transmission oil. I know that pulling the wrong plug is a hassle, and depending on if you drop it or not you may be refilling the transmission or engine oils when you didn't want to.

I need to know where the oil drain plug is on a 2002 harley deuce.

A deuce is a member of the Softail family. Look at the bottom of the oil tank from the right side of the bike. Look for a large hose that runs down behind the transmission and continues on down to the crossmember of the frame under the transmission. There's a plug in the crossmember of the frame. Remove the plug to drain the oil.

Good Luck

Where is oil drain plug 2005 salftail Deuce

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.
