The manual says to fill it to the bottom of that round disk. I did but it only took a 1/5 of a quart. Ive read to fill with one quart. Which is it.

I fill mine with a whole quart. When the bike is level it will be right at the bottom of the disk.

Did you drain the existing primary gear oil?

lol I thought someone would ask me that. Yeah I tilted the bike up and had my wife hold the funnel and it went straight to the mark. Thanks guys.

What onelogue said. Drain existing crankcase oil - if the bike's not level when you do that, put the bike level to drain any remaining oil. Then one quart will fill it to where it needs to be. If it only took a fifth of a quart, you haven't drained the existing oil.

Here'a another stupid question...

How much spent oil came out when you originally drained the trany?

Ya it only takes 1 qt. I just pull the drain plug and refill thru the chain tension check hole. I change oil everytime I change engine oil. I haven't even had the clutch adjuster cover off mine yet and I have 19,000 miles on it. Using Harley Syn oil since the first change.
