Just attempted to change the oil on my 00 softail the only problem being the dealership put the plug in so tight it won't come out, I can feel the "allen" beginning to strip the plug any ideas how to get this thing out before it strips? Thanks for the help.
On my 2000 softail I have always used the 5/8 or is it 9/16? socket and never had a problem. My dealer only changed my oil once, the free 1000 mile service and he didn't overtighten...but the socket will give you a much better mechanical advantage than the allen wrench.
