The oil is drained through a tube that runs down behind the transmission all the way down to the lowest point on the frame beneath the transmission. I don't know what year they changed the location but some models have a plug in the end of the hose on the frame tube. Later years, the hose goes on down and connects to a nipple on a crossover bar. There is a plug underneath the crossover bar that screw up into the crossover bar. Take the plug out to drain the oil.

To drain the transmission, look at the chrome clutch release mechanism on the right side of the bike, Just below the bottom edge of that, you'll find a pipe plug, remove the pipe plug to drain the tranny.

The drain for the primary is on the very bottom of the case at the back directly beneath the derby cover.

If your bike has been sitting for a year, you're probably going to have problems with the fuel system as well. You may have to take the carb off, disassemble it and clean the jets out.

I have no idea how to service a fuel injection system.

Good Luck
Steve
