Pic please

Hay, I'm geting ready to do some matinence on my bike and I was wondering witch plug do I pull to empty and then refill the rear end with lube. I know that the standard procedure is to fill to the bottom of the treads. I was just wondering if someone could post a pic with a arrow pointing me to the right plug.

Thanks in advance.

Keep her rubber side down.

Do you have a copy of the repair manual yet?
You can get it from my signature.
Sorry, no pics from me. I'm at work.

Dude, the smaller bolt (10 or 12mm) under the axel is the drain plug. The larger bolt (17mm) to the right of the axel is to fill the final drive. This is looking at the bike from the drive shaft side.

I only understand what I don't understand.

I was mainly looking for the plug that you refill the rear end from. I've found what I was looking for though. The thing that had me confused was the Allen bolt in the top side of the rear end. At first I thought that was the full plug lol. I'm glad I'm wrong becouase I tryed to take it out and it wouldn't budge. If anyone knows why that little thing is there I would be ecstatic to learn something new. In the mean time I'm going to leave it alone.

it's the self destruct allen screw...DON"T TOUCH IT

honestly...I have no idea...prolly what William said. All I know is that it isn't something you need to touch.
Bottom bolt to drain....larger one to fill. just be careful not to overtighten the upper one or you will strip it out and be SOL.
