    Did you buy it new(it comes with an extensive manual)? If you bought used the previous owner should have given you the manual.

    There is a little oil window on the bottom of the motor however, it is unreliable. I only use it to check the color of my oil. I change my oil every ride so rarely do I have to check it.


    You can change the oil by taking out the screw on the top of the oil pan (this is the ventilation screw) and then take out the screw at the bottom of the oil pan. Once that pan is drained there is a screw on the transmission which is on the side of the tranny behind a frame rail......take that out and drain it.

    Finally, unscrew the oil cap which is probably black and plastic on the side of the motor and pour in the correct amount. If you want to change the oil filter, it should be on the rear brake side of the bike with three screws holding the cap on.

    BTW, my advice is only good for a 2006 or newer.
