I did a little research but could not locate anything that would help me identify if my bike has a wet or dry clutch. I have a 2011 Road Glide FLTRX 103 Custom. How can I determine what type of clutch I have?

Bike is stock??? No mods? Wet clutch, dry clutch are usualy used in primary belt drive application.

With the wet clutch , the clutch has it's own separate oil bath , completely sealed from the motor or transmission oils . So if you pull the derby cover and see oil in there , it's wet .. If it's a shovelhead or older Harley or has an open primary , it's dry ..

Wet clutches wear better than dry clutches , also are much easier on your clutch hand in stop and go traffic , unless you have a slave cylinder added to it ..

Dry clutches grab better off the line , don't last as long as wet clutches , and as they wear , get noisier .. They are more common on the race track ..

Harley's last dry clutch on a touring model was in 1984. I still have the pressure tester in the tool box.
