    Question Wrenching your Roadliner?

    Is anyone here wrenching their own bike? I decided to do my own after 600 mile check. Got it back home and found a small puddle of oil under the bike. Forward drain bolt was loose. Middle drain bolt smoked tight. I tried to tighten forward bolt and found you can't do it with certain wrenches because the wrench hits the case. Asked the dealer to show me what they used and they just said to bring it back and they would fix it. Ended up making my own tool for it out of a short box end wrench that I grinded down. Does anyone have a link to a good manual? Information on special tools would be helpful too if anyone has made any or knows where to get them. One dealer nearby and I just can't trust them any more. Hope I'm not in this boat alone...let me hear ya!
