    Ive bought an -09 RS Venture TF and the last owner didnt know when the chaincase oil last was changed so I guess I better do it now when this season is over.
    But I cant find the oilplug for the chaincase (just the plug to change motor oil, wich I also will change).
    Where will this plug sit or do you use an oilpump to drain the old oil?

    The drain plug is inside the tunnel. I forget if you need a wrench, or Allen Key to get the plug out.

    Wrench will work. Bolt is right behind chain case inside of tunnel.

    Chaincase: 12mm wrench up inside tunnel right at bottom of chaincase. 250ml to get the proper amount in chaincase.
    Also, there are two drain plugs for the engine oil, one on bottom of motor accessible by removing the access cover, and one on oil tank (reservoir) on right hand side of sled next to chaincase/brake rotor. Plug is on bottom of tank.
    Fill with new oil and check level in the tank without threading the dipstick into the tank.
    Cheers.

    It worked like a charm
    Both motor and chaincase oil changed today.
    Thanks for the help.
