That plug is usually up in one of the holes on the skid plate.  It’s definitely there so you are going to have to really get under it and feel around.  Even wash it out. I had a Yamaha with  a skid plate.  It was packed with dried mud.  After a little hosing down and looking I found it.   As far as the oil level there should be a sight glass or an indicator level on the oil plug almost like a dip stick but one or the other it’s there.   As far as oil a good 10w40 will be fine.  There was actually a topic on this today in the forum about oils.  Take a look.  

Be gentle with that oil plug when removing and reinstalling. You over tighten it and it strips or even worse crack the engine casing  where the threads are.

That transmission plug should have a hex head flush type drain plug and it should be on the bottom same side as the fill cap.  Some of the engines on other manufacturers bikes had the gear boxes built right into the engine where the engine oil was also the gear box oil. Both pros and cons . I believe your bike has a separate transmission, locate the fill cap and look under the bike in the same area.

Ok Mr Gary we need to figure this out. I know @Ajmboy is a Suzuki guy. Maybe he has some input.  But I would think there has to be a drain plug.  Have you checked the lower sides of the case ? Maybe instead of the bottom ?

      Does anyone know how to access the check engine codes on a 2018 450 sportsman. Just changed battery and spark plug . It runs fine but the light is on and I need this to plow snow and need it reliable. Any ideas . Thanks

      Have an '02 Ford Taurus that's been grandma driven for all of it's 95k miles. After doing some very easy driving in town for a couple hours today I accelerated up to about 50 and noticed the car didn't seem to be responding to the gas pedal anymore. Looked down and the engine was doing 4k rpm so I let off the gas. Pumped the gas a couple times to see if the car responded and got nothing. Coasted to a stop in a safe lane and tested it in all the gears...nothing. The car stays put if you put it in park but you can roll it back when in any other gear position. The gear leaver on the tree does still give resistance when you move between gears. No music was playing and there was no noticeable sound whenever the breakage occurred.

      Called a friend and was advised to check the gear shift linkage at the top of the transmission. I'm not familiar with what the arm's full range of motion is supposed to be but I noted it's position while in park and low 1 and it seems to be moving well. Felt the connections and they seemed solid.

      Without the benefit of being able to do a proper run-up to a transmission fluid check I wiped and re-dipped the stick and it read fairly high although I hadn't added any fluid for at least 10k miles. The fluid was just a shade darker than light pink and although I didn't check specifically it didn't seem to have a burnt smell.

      There's no way low engine oil could cause something like this is there?

      Any ideas?

      Do any of you fine folks happen to have a rear swing arm skid plate for a 400EX you would part with at a reasonable price?  New ones are between $60 and a Hundo and that seems a bit steep.  I've kicked around the idea of fabbing one but 2nd hand OEM would be preferable.  Thoughts?  I have a belly skid plate but missing the swing arm skid plate and really don't wanna taco the brake rotor.

      I have a 2002 Suzuki LT-F500F, and am a first time atv  owner. I rode two wheel bikes for many years, and now, two months in to being a new at owner, am just not enamored with the thumb throttle, and I’m wondering if anyone has tried a conversion to a typical twist grip throttle as found on all motorcycles? If so, how do you like it?
