Welcome to the VTXOA!
TWO drain plugs for the oil change.
Speedometer reads 10% higher than actual speed. Odometer is about 4% higher than actual.
Front tire, you tighten the left pinch bolts to hold the axle so that you can tighten the axle bolt.
Then you loosen the Left pinch bolts and bounce the front up/down a few times.
Then tighten pinch bolts. A verification is a small groove on the left side outside of the fork.
That groove is usually visible or partially visible.
I do mine slightly different, same result.
Tighten axle bolt > axle turns many times, fork tube will find its natural location. Tighten pinch bolts and axle bolt to torque spec.
A film of grease on the axles to prevent rust/oxidation.
