Re: Silicone Oil refill
There is a door on the back cover. It is located on the lower right hand side. Take a quarter, and turn the screw until the door comes off. Inside is a tank, that you fill with the proper silicone oil.

1) Drain the fluid.2) Remove all oil pan screws around the exterior.3) Pull down oil pan.4) Remove old gasket.5) Clean both mating surfaces. 6) Take the opportunity to replace any gearbox oil filter within. 7) Refit new gasket with silicone sealant on both sides (I prefer 'Three Bond') 8) Refit screws, tightening several times all the way around until snug. 9) Refill with fresh oil.
If it is just leaking a little, remove the primary cover. Push the stator plug into the primary housing. Clean the plug and hole it goes into with brake cleaner. Apply black silicone to the outside of the stator plug and push back into the hole. Replace the primary cover, and after the silicone is dry, refill the primary. If oil is leaking alot, and the bike is a Twin Cam, check to make sure vent hose on the trans top cover isn't plugged. Twin Cam primaries vent through the trans and if the vent hose is plugged, oil will be under pressure in the primary and force itself out around the stator plug.
Drain oil, remove oil pan bolts, drop pan, scrape remnants of old gasket off, attach new gasket to pain using silicone gasket sealer (Permatex) and reinstall & refill w/oil. Some applications require loosening motor mounts and raising engine a couple of inches to clear cross members.
Drain oil remove appx, 20 bolts from arround pan remove and replace gasket, Make sure you get all of the old gasket off. And use a high tempiture silicone when replacing gasket onto pan place hew gasket onto silicone let set appx 15 min Also place some of your silicone onto your engine block where the pan fit's up to. When tighting bolts do not over tight, this will damage your pans smoothness. Good luck.
