Drain Plug on 2007 Road King TC

My owners manual is confusing in that I do not seem to be able to identify which bolt / plug is the drain plug for the engine oil on my 2007 FLHRS 2007 TC96 Road King Custom. Could someone please post a picture to help me identify which is the correct plug so that i can do an oil change and save myself a fortune by not having it done at the stealership. Thanks.

It,s the least obvious one!!!

I've undone the wrong one a few times in the past!!!!

But if you do get it wrong it's only the gearbox oil so you can change that as well no big deal,

Well that's sorted. Man that oil was cooked. Hard to imagine that it was only 2000 miles since the oil had been changed. So now the King has some quality oil and new filter installed. Some engineer didnt think about that Transmission position sensor and its relationship to the oil filter did they. But I had the tool for the job and got the old filter out without destroying the sensor

That's the crank position sensor. Ruin that and you'll have no sparks.
