under the right side belly pan the is a plug, it's on the inside of the tunnel directly
behind the chain case..
Simple loosen plug and slide drip tray under it and drain. When it is empty
reinstall the plug and top of with 8oz of your lube of choice.

I used a brake bleeder vacuum pump to suck the old oil out, pulled the cover off to check it all out and wipe out the last of the old oil, cover it back up and refilled it.

yup what UECAR said, it's amazing how many people don't know there is a drain plug under there.

It is a good idea to pull the cover every year and do a quick inspection also.

Once I drain mine I just pop it off and look inside. Check the tensioner, chain, sprokets and wipe everything down. Not a bad idea to check the fasteners to insure they are snug.


Best part about one coming loose during a ride is you can always see what came loose on the side of the trail and make a quick diagnosis as the symptoms are very easy to recognize. massive hole in the chaincase, parts all over the belly pan and oil everywhere!

If you've seen one grenade, you will remember it!

I do what freezerburnt does, I like to see whats going on inside the case anyway.
My wood stove loves those oily rags.

I tear mine apart on both of my sleds every year. Drain fluid, pull cover and inspect the internals. I also spray brake cleaner in there to get all of the old oil out before re-installing the cover.

One more point to add.. if you have reverse than you need 12 oz of oil.
If you have electric start and reverse; removing the chain case cover becomes a bit of a project
