Oil change on a 2000

Just bought it, went and got the oil and the filter but IM kinda curios on how to drain the oil? Where are the drain hoses at?

Thanks!

Oil Change

There are two hoses attached to the frame with a clamp just on the inside of the side stand. Use pliers to remove the hose clamps and drain both into a pan. If your oil is in any condition close to how mine was when I bought it, you'll see white sludge coming out of one of the hoses. If that's the case, you might be well off doing a flush of your oil by putting in some 20w50 and running it for a good fifteen minutes and then emptying that out and starting fresh with new oil and a filter.

As for how much, my Buell manual told me 1.5 quarts but in reality it was closer to two. Keep in mind not to fill it all the way up cold; the proper way to check the oil level is a "hot check" after running the bike for around ten minutes.

It's hidden behind the silver guard bar on the kickstand side of the bike, just above where the guest rider peg is... once you see it, it's easy to detach and drain.
