Remove the lower plastic and the filter should be behind the exhaust. but before you do that the oil type will be shown on the back of the tank.

Oil level for Suzuki TS 185 (1989)

Drain the oil and put 750ml back into the gearbox. If your bike doesn't have a dipstick and you have good, clean oil in it, drain it into a plastic bowl then put it right back into the engine but measure it before you pour it back in. When you get 750ml in the box then look at the level in the box. That is the level to maintain.

Pleas rate this solution. Thanks!
