1987 suzuki LT230E, manual shows the plug on the underside of engine. Not there. There's an access hole in the skid plate, but no plug. I see a possible plug on the backend of the engine case. Its not underneath but on the low part of the case. Facing the swing arm. Is that it?

OK. That's easy enuff, or so it would appear. Thanks for your response, I appreciate that.

I removed the front skid plate bolts and let it swing down. The only bolts on the bottom of the case, are the 3 small ones that hold a square plate underneath the oil filter area. The only other place I can think, is on the lower rear case next to the reverse gear sending unit. Its a 17mm bolt with a brass compression washer. It's just strange to me that it's not on the underside. It is low on the case though.

Is the repair here as simple as;

1. Removing the skid plate.

2. Taking the oil drain cover off

3. Replacing the cover and bolt

4. Carefully reattaching the oil drain cover to the case (I know there is an O ring in there etc.)?

notice #2 take DRAIN COVER OFF

Does the drain cover have 3 bolts?

I dont know ,does the manual show a pic?

It shows a 17mm plug that can be unbolted through an access hold in the skid plate. There's no plug on the underside of the engine at all.

take off the "oil drain cover" (plate) an see if theres a drain bolt there.

I loosened the 3 bolts that hold the plate. Oil started pouring out when I broke the seal. What a fuktup setup. Lol thanks for your help!

well, now u know how to change the oil, could u look inside to see if the bolt on the side was a drain plug?

or did u pull it out to see if it was a drain or a fill plug?

      Hello,
      I'm new to the site.  My son and I have decided to bring back our old quad from the dead.  Does anyone know where we can purchase a cylinder kit for it.  I think it's a 1986, but will have to check the VIN to be sure.
      The last time it ran, it was tapping and smoking pretty bad.
      Any help would be appreciated.
      Thanks!

      I am working on a Honda sportrax I just got my daughter for get birthday and the reverse and neutral light are not working. When I traced the wire down I saw that it wasn't plugged in but I don't see where it is supposed to connect. Does any one have a general idea of where I should look?

      Ok...I'm gettin' me juevos ready to do an oir filter clean....
      Went to my local harley/quad dealer and he had me purchase the No-Toil kit (Cleaner, Air Filter Oil, Rim Grease)
      What I've read is that the No-Toil cleaner will NOT clean
      other oils off air filters....just the No-Toil oil....
      So, I've also read that others have cleaned their air filters
      in the kitchen sink, used gasoline, or used flash solvent....
      Looking for advice as I've mentioned I'm very mechanically
      DECLINED!
      I'm going to wash the air box seal in the sink and give it a good dry....
      One more thing......No-Toil or Bel-Ray for filter oil?
      Thanks!

      Have a 2011 Grizz 700 and for the diff oil the manual calls for SAE 80 API GL-4 hypoid gear oil. I'll be using Mobil 1 synthetic but as it comes in two different weights I'm not sure which one to get....either the 75W-90 or the 75W-140.
      The 75W-90 is listed as GL-5 and is recommended for use in 'high-performance vehicles like SUVs, vans and light duty trucks.' The 75W-140 weight is also GL-5 and is recommended for 'high-performance vehicles including sport utility vehicles, vans and light-duty trucks.'
