The silver cap with the 17mm hex on it? Bottom center of your pic.

That's the cap for the oil screen.

Also known as the side oil drain....which most use to drain their oil.
Do you have an owners manual? You can down load one. (Hopefully someone will provide a link)

I've always drained it from the bolt on the bottom of the engine first, then I remove the oil screen. There's always more oil that drains at the screen.

I figured pulling the screen cap first might be too much of a gusher to contain. But maybe not since the cap is slotted inside. So KM, oil didn't run all over when you pulled the cap first?

Don't over-tighten this cap. It seals with an o-ring and doesn't need to be extra tight. Many of these get stripped and broken because they're over-tightened. I barely tighten mine and it's always hard to break loose.

I always used the side drain, just cracking it part way open is enough to get most of the oil out, then remove it all the way. pretty controlled release really

^This. If I rember correctly I'd also put a small sheet of tinfoil under the oil filter to keep oil off the front of the motor when removing.
