Harley-Davidson recommends you change your V-Twin motorcycle's oil every 2,500 miles to ensure the longevity and performance of your bike's engine. Performed regularly, these oil changes can extend the life of your Dyna Super Glide dramatically.

Locating your oil plug is a simple process and you will do this when completing a reasonably straight forward oil change on the motorcycle.
To begin the oil change process, unscrew the oil filler cap from the oil tank. Remove the oil drain plug which you can find at the bottom left side of the motor's crankcase with a 5/8-inch socket. Place an oil pan beneath the drain plug and allow the oil to drain completely. Remove and replace the drain plug's O-ring with a new O-ring. Wipe the tip of the drain plug clean with a shop towel and reinsert it into the motor, using a 5/8-inch socket to tighten the plug.
Remove the oil filter from the front of the motor with a strap wrench. Fill a new oil filter with fresh 20W50 motor oil and spread a thin coat of oil on the filter's inner gasket. Screw the oil filter onto the motor by hand until it is seated snugly against the crankcase. Tighten the oil filter an additional quarter-turn to secure it in place.
Pour up to 2.5 quarts of fresh 20W50 motor oil into the tank and wipe away any spilled oil with a shop towel. Reinstall the oil filler cap onto the oil tank's filler neck and then your oil change is complete.
If you are still unsure about the location of the oil plug, a local Harley Davidson dealership will be able to find you the relevant manual for this model and that will give you illustrated instructions on the process.

Check your dipstick to see if there is oil in the engine, Of full then you drained the granny. The oil should smell different if not burnt too much. The tranny  should be a bolt type plug like a car and the engine might be a hose drain. Also, the tranny holds a lot less than the engine. My sporty's tranny holds 1 qt tranny and 4qts engine
