I bought an '03 RG (In Oct. of last year) from a friend of mines Uncle. He purchased it new, and while under warranty, all service was done by Harley.
After the warranty he did the service himself.
His entire family are "car/bike/boat/ATV" people. I trust them ENTIRELY...
AFTER the purchase we have talked and he said he continued to use the Harley SYN 3 for all services.
The bike had JUST UNDER 27k when I took ownership.. And it had JUST HAD ALL FLUIDS CHANGED (before the new owner took possession)
I have put 5k miles on it and wanted to do a fluid change.
I bought all the fluids and parts from the dealer and upon starting the job, I noticed the amount of fluid that I drained from the primary case is MORE THAN 32 ounces as the service manual calls for...
My question is this... Should I Follow the manual, or put the amount back in, that came out?
I do all services (that I have knowledge of, and tools to do) myself.
I've never done a service on a bike so this is "new to me"
I have a truck with over 300k miles on it that I've serviced since I took ownership with 28k miles on it..
I'm not scared to do it... Or learn it...
I just like to "dot all my I's and cross all of my T's "
Also... The part/gasket I got for the clutch inspection cover LOOKS NOTHING, like what came off..
