Default How to fill fluid back in behind Derby?

Just swapped out my derby cover for one of the 'dark custom' ones....of course fluid poured out of when I removed the old cover. I haven't invested in a manual yet (Christmas list item), so how can I refill this area? and should I use oil, Trans Fluid, or some combo?

sorry for the newbie post but I searched and turned up too many results to sort through.

With the bike upright, you want the fluid (Syn 3 or Sport Trans) to just cover the teeth at the bottom of the clutch.

You don't need to add it through the primary chain inspection cover (the small access plate mentioned by Xllent01), you can add it through the Derby Cover. If you add it through the Primary inspection cover access, you won't be able to see when the level is correct.

Be carefull to not over fill or under fill it.

You can do it either way..which ever is easier..just prefer the inspection cover cause it's alot less messy, and a whole lot faster

Yes, it's a bitch to pour it into the derby cover opening. You just can't see the level of the fluid if you don't have the derby cover off.

The Parts Catalog is very helpful too. Gives exploded views of all the sub systems.

also a note book or three ring binder....write down date, mileage and what you have done. this will prove invaluable in the future.
