ok

i did not find it, and i read the first response. so to drain the oil you do drain it @ the filter, but REALLY you have to suck it out? sorry to sound like an idiot
but i really am at a loss.

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain. He is trying to give you a mouthful of oil. The drain plug is just where you would think it is. Look thru the hole in the skidplate and you will find it. If you want an easier way to drain it check out the thread on Fumoto drain valves. Just do a search here with the Key word Fumoto.

By the way, Welcome to the forum....you usually get good information here.
