Where is the oil drain on a 96 softail?
Look on the right side (the side where the dip stick is located) there is a hose that goes down off of the oil tank to the frame. There is a Plug in the end of this hose. Remove the hose from the clip that is holding it to the frame and remove the plug.
I'm trying to change my oil on my 08 heritage softail. I located a drain plug under the bike but that doesn't seem to be it. I believe it is the transmission oil and now I have two problems.

I have a sportster and it doesn't have a drain plug. It has a drain hose that is located under the engine and is connected to the rear pipe mount on a stud with a small hose clamp.

After removing the drain plug from the chain case with a torx bit, remove the torx bits from the access panel. Once the oil has drained completely, reinstall the drain plug and fill the chain case with one quart of oil. It may be necessary to use a funnel. Reinstall the access cover with a new gasket.
Unlike newer softails where the transmission drain plug is located between the two softail shocks underneath the tranny, the older EVO softail transmission (1993 FXSTS) drain plug is located on the right side of the transmission. Look below the chrome transmission cover and you will see a small #30 torx drain plug centered in between two Allen mounting bolts. It drains out to the side not the bottom. You will likely have to remove the…

The drain for the trans is located on the bottom of the trans & can be reached.... barely.... by using an extension and 5/8 socket between the rear softail shocks.
