you will have to get a pair of vise grips or mole grips depending what country you are in and what you call them there. make sure you get them on the bolt real tight. check out this link for new bolt/filter http://www.mandp.co.uk/productinfo.aspx?catref=500323&tier1url=Spares&tier2url=Oil-Filter-Bolts&tier3url=Economy&tier4url=Oil-Filter-Bolts

The drain plug is on the left center engine casing, near the front of the case at the lowest point of the case. Warm up the engine, turn it off then drain the oil after removing the oil fill dipstick on the top of the casing. The bike should be resting on the side stand.
The filter is at the rear of the engine near the bottom. It unscrews by turning counter clockwise. Put a thin film of oil on the new filter rubber seal and threads. Tighten hand tight then 1/4 turn more, ( 22 foot pounds of torque ). Use a genuine Honda filter. Aftermarket filters are inferior and can cause the bike major damage if they fail. I have seen them collapse internally and plug up the oil flow. The engine is pretty much trash after this happens. Aftermarket filters are cheap for a reason.
Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Up North use 20w40, down South use 20w50 motor oil. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell.
Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.
Please top rate this solution. Thanks!

Transmission and engine oil the same (... share a common sump ...)
Fill through the same place you put the engine oil in (also, check it)
