Motorcycle Repair: Changing the Primary Chaincase Oil on a 2008 Harley Davidson Road Glide

**Always follow the instructions in your repair manual when doing repair or maintenance work on a motorcycle. Manuals can be found at the dealer and online.** This video is about changing the Primary Chaincase Lubricant or Oil on a 2008 Harley Davidson Road Glide. The oil used is 20W-50 Harley Davidson Syn3, and is their fully synthetic oil. I think it is manufactured by Sunoco for Harley Davidson. Harley Davidson sells one other type of oil for the chaincase on this motorcycle, and is Harley Davidson Formula+ Transmission and Primary Chaincase Lubricant and is not a synthetic oil. Tools Used: – 5/16″ Allen Wrench to remove the passenger foot board – 5/8″ Socket for the Primary Chaincase Drain Plug – T27 Torx Driver for the Torx Screws that fasten the Clutch Inspection Cover – Torque Wrench Specifications: – Torx Screws for Clutch Inspection Cover should be tightened to 84-108 in.-lbs – Drain Plug should be tightened to 14-21 ft.-lbs – Harley Davidson Gasket Service Kit Part #17369-06

    @harleydman08 For this bike the clutch inspection cover should be tightened to 84-108 in. lbs. I would recommend getting a repair manual for your motorcycle and following the instructions. If you plan to do all the maintenance work yourself, than a torque wrench is a good investment.
