05 LTZ 400 Oil Change

Im gonna change the oil on my quad but i dunno how to...! Gonna have to learn but theres no step by step directions online with pics etc... was gonna buy a manual but i'll only need to learn once... Bigger stuff is done by the local bike mechanic... Any help, tips and/or ideas would be greatly appreciated...!

Read the manual, do a search. There's plenty of answers to this question on here. It's very simple, drain the crank case (oil plug in middle), drain the oil bottle, replace the filter, add 2000ml of oil and check the dipstick. I'd run it for a minute, let it sit for 3 minutes, then check the oil level.
