    Just take off the lower right side fairing, it's like 4 phillips screws, can get to them with a stubby screwdriver. Also, personally I stick with motorcycle oil, I've heard of people using diesel oil, but regular auto engine oil, especially a conventional oil, I'd stay away from. Conventional oil breaks down easily in high heat, and these bikes do get hot enough to cook it.

    Also on amazon you can buy a complete Kawasaki oil change kit that has 3qts of kawasaki 10w40 oil, oem filter, and oem crush washer for like $36 shipped. Thats what I did, cheaper than the dealer.

    Sunwave, What year is your bike. Looks newer than a 2012. We can most likely find you a manual to help with oil changes.
