Part# 90430-08119-00 (washer for the middle drive gearbox drain plug) OD=15mm & ID=8.2mm

also part# 90430-06016-00 (if you need the washer for the smaller level fill check/drain, located directly under the fill port) OD=6.2mm & ID=11mm

Re:gear oil change 9 Months, 4 Weeks ago  
Thanks for the info. I could not get the little fill screw out due to my pipes. Think I might have gotton a little bit to much oil in the bike. Just over a 1/2 qt. Is that going to be a problem? My thought was just a little more would be better than less?

Re:gear oil change 9 Months, 4 Weeks ago  
More is not always better. Should take 1/2qt. There is a pump that runs off the driven gear that pumps the oil onto the drive gear and thru the driven gear shaft to the far (left side) bearing.
If the oil level is too high it can be agitated by the chain and froth up. Also don't want the oil level above the shaft lip seal. I guess how much is too much is the question of the day.
I usually fill with the bike level and go to 1/2qt or till it runs out the small "level check hole" below the fill port. (Usually about the same time).

Yeah, looking at your sig pic, I see the problem.
Best tool for that is a set of true duals.

Re:gear oil change 9 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
I used a short Allen to loosen the check plug and then a torx screwdriver to remove and install the check level plug. Back to the short Allen to put the final tight on it. I have the v h short pipes and had to go between the pipes with the torx screwdriver I think it's a 27 torx

I have used a large washer with vise grips. It got that sucker off.
