I figure I start to do my own oil changes - save a few bucks. Shouldn't be difficult. Got a manual, gives the instructions with some pics. Ready to go. Except when I look at the pic for removing the oil drain plug doesn't seems right. So, here my 1st newbie dumb maintenance question / observation. I see a plug (under) beside exhaust pipe - same side as filler plug. Am I safe to assume that's it. I know that there is a plug beside the filter housing but I understand that to be for the coolant. Sorry to consume anybody time but I don't want to start removing things before I know what they do.

Dont forget to change the oil filter at the same time

Hi Tricky. Thanks for the pics. The pic clearly shows the oil drain plug. Much better that Clymer's version. I am changing oil and filter. Cheers.

be slow to remove drain bolt or you will get a surge of oil that by passes your bucket and hits your center stand leaving a mess.
