I decided to change the trans oil. Looks untouched at 13K miles. Is this thing spot-welded at the factory?

Give it a whack with a hammer straight on the face. Mine was super tight, I did this, and came right loose. Make sure you have a good allen key or socket that fits tight so as to not potentially strip the inside of the allen key hole.

Thanks for the reply Bulldog. Still no love. Freeze spray?

I remember mine being tough the first change. Yes give it a spray and get the proper tool. Maybe let it sit overnight if you can.

Thanks John, I will let it sit. Multiple sprays of PB Blaster...

Probably oxidation glueing it in place.

Something like this will give you some leverage.
Good Luck.

That's a good looking bike John!

Yeah, I've tried some of the tools I had lying around. Breaker bars and such like have stayed out of the fray... So far anyway.

I use a "Vessel" impact driver. That, and that large hammer you are showing will move the earth (or snap it off trying). The electric impact driver you also show is for smaller jobs.

Good looking bike Kiwi! The plug laughed at the 'lectric driver. Continue to spray and pray.

You can always extend your leverage by slipping an old fork stanchion over the end of your 1/2" drive. Don't do it with tools you might want to keep whole. I've used a piece of 1/2" square steel bar with a 90° bend close to the driver with success.

Makes a guy wonder what the last guy to install the plug was thinking.

He was probably thinking about lunch in the Mandello cafeteria. Bike has 13K miles. I am the third owner. scratch

Would be interested in your feedback on the HD Shockproof gear oil. I used it in mine but it lost all the ‘feel’ to the point where it was difficult to believe it had fully engaged 1st.

I was expecting a big change. My '04 V11 Sport loved the stuff. The GRiSO seems indifferent, Slightly less clack on engagement. More of a click...
