Although I don't work on 2000 and later model bikes, I'm pretty sure that the oil pan can be removed from the bottom of the transmission just as the older model bikes were.

Good Luck

Picture of oil plug,harley 2001 88cc road king

I can't send you a picture but according to the drawing, the oil drain plug is in the bottom of the transmission oil pan. It should be the standard hex head type drain plug. Actually the drawing shows two drain plugs, one on the bottom and one on the front fo the oil pan. The countersunk hex pipe plug in the front of the pan looks like it's for draining the transmission. Notice the shape of the gasket. The engine oil is in the pan and the transmission oil drains down through the pan.

Good Luck

How to change transmission pan gasket

Drain the engine oil and transmission oil. Remove the bolts and drop the pan. Install a new gasket and reinstall the pan. No problem. I usually allow the transmission to sit overnight if I can and let most of the oil drip out.

Good luck

How do i change the oil pan gasket on a 2002 Road King? I have oil leaking from the pan.

Remove the pan, clean both gasket surfaces, wipe a light film of silicone on both surfaces, then stick the new gasket back to the surface and mount the oil pan back on.

Your local dealer can give you the torque specs, but just making them 1/2 turn past finger tight works, too. Don't ride for a couple hours after you're done, so the silicone has time to set up.

Location of oil drain plug on harley davidson road king

The tank on your Road King is on the bottom of the transmission. Look underneath the transmission and you'll see two drain plugs. The plug on left front of the oil pan is the engine oil drain. The plug near the center of the pan is the transmission drain plug. Good Luck, Steve

2008 harley road king oil pan removal procedure

Raise and support vehicle with area at and behind the pan unobstructed, drain transmission and engine oils, remove pan bolts (may need a long ball Allen) and pull pan out to the rear. Should be able to do this without swing arm removal but may have to remove rear tire if there is not enough clearance with it in place.
