Question about 1980 Yamaha XS 400 Special
Get yourself a a oil pan trey to drip the old oil in. If you lay at the bottom of the bike you would see a big nut at the bottom should be a 17 or 15 inch, before unsrewing the nut (anti-clockwise) lay some newss paper under the bike and keep your oil trey near, position the oil trey below the nut just before you turn it completely loose best to undo it at the end by hand,
wait until all the oil has dripped out would advice replaceing the o ring inside the bolt you just removed.
once all the oil out you can put the srew back in
oil filter is just behind the manifold should be a 14 inch nut just loosen and remove the whole unit wil come out pull off the oil filter from the unit and replace with new one also replace any worn o rings and put back in then you may fill up with new oil .
Strongly advise buying you some good oil it's better to spend the extra money on oil that would prolong your engine and keep it running smooth
