I just hit my 600 mile mark on my raider and now its time for the dreaded gear oil
change .
I heard from every one that the pipes must be removed , thats not true i just did mine
and it was easy ,
first off what drain plugs are what , the drain plug is on the side of thetransfer case
hidden behind that ulgy foil crap , so use some pliers and unclip the zip ties,
the drain plug is a t-40 torx,
next is the fill plug this is the big silver plug on the side to remove this i used a
10mm allen that i cut to about 1 1/2 inch and i used a 10mm wrench to turn
now for the little level plug this is the allen bolt under the big fill plug i used a 1/4 inch
socket with a allen made for my drill gun .
so dont remove your pipes . drain the transfer case and plug it back up
now fill with .58 quart sae80 api gl-4 hypoid gear oil (per the owners manual)
fill in the big hole untill the little fill level hole starts to drip .
please pass on this info .

Why go through the trouble??

Just save some time and pull the stinkin pipes off! You do not have to take the entire assembly apart, just the center heat shield then disconnect the mufflers from the header. Remove the top two header bolts, pull out slightly and bada bing bada boom. If you have hands like mine (huge), doing it the way that was described would be a pain in the arse!

Transfer oil change

I guess that Vance and Hines must have the oil change in mind when they made the BR2into1 pipes. You don't have to move no pipes are remove them. I did not buy the pipes because of this, it just came about.
