cam case oil

This may sound like a dumb question but I was wondering how do you add oil to the cam case or is it the same oil you put in the transmission case?

The fill cap on our touring bikes is next to the transmission. Just pop the cap off and a dipstick is attached to it. Add your oil there. The tranny fill aft of the engine fill. You need a hex drive to remove the tranny fill cap. Dipstick attached to it as well. Make sure that you add the same fluid type that is already installed.

Cam case oil

I believe that his question is really which fluid case is responsible for lubricating the cam chest? The trans, primary or motor.

2013 FLTRX B B P, 11 in Paughco RG Apes, V & H Monster Round, American custom dual header, SE high flow air intake, 8.5 in Klock Werks shield, Monotubes up front, lots of blacked out chrome parts, and the list goes on.......

The engine oil goes to the CAM CASE. Cams are part of the engine.
