Need to tune and change oil on 1996 Kawasaki vulcan 1500

What constitutes a tune up other than changing the plugs? What about filters. The oil set up is odd. No dipstick? Where is filter and drain plug?

A complete tune up consists of new fuel filter, oil filter, oil, plugs, valve adjust, carb sync and plug wires(optional).. if there is no dipstick, there must be a sight glass on one side of the engine down low. on that model i believe the oil filter is underneath along with the drain plug. there should be (2) 17mm bolts, one for drain plug the other for filter.
