Thanks guys. My pan doesn't fit under the primary on the side stand. Glad it doesn't matter. It's jacked now.

Thats true, on a Sportster, the transmission and primary use the same fluid. On a BT they are separate.

Good point.

So either, I'm being too anal and should loosen up and guess/fudge it a bit for torque values less than the range of my wrench, OR, I need a small in/lbs wrench AND a big in/lbs wrench, AND a big and a small one for ft/lbs too.

I don't want four wrenches. It seems like I need four. Tell me what to do.
My service manual says tighten oil drain plug 14-21 ft-lb so I would just set it at 18. Others always a lower and higher, I choose in between. I have two Proto in-lb
Sears ft-lb covers everything on my 2012 EG.

The oil drain plug comes from the factory with an o-ring and teflon on the threads. The o-ring and teflon should be replaced prior to reinstalling the drain plug. I hand tighten drain plugs snug, never had one loosen or fall out.
