    Ok, I feel like a total goober for even asking this. I know where the dipstick is on the NE5 - but I was on my hands and knees today and I cannot for the life of me find the drain plug - Am I looking right at it but not seeing it? Am I blind? Am I crazy? (don't answer that one!)

    Regards,

    Matthew

    Oil plug

    Hi MoonKS, it's on the lower left side of the engine. A large allen wrench takes it out. Hope this helps.

    Hi Ren,

    Good to see a fellow Kansan! Where in Wichita did you get yours? Truett and Osborne?

    Thanks for the tip - I will look right after work!

    Mine is in the same spot but it is a bolt with a 12mm head. I think it's 12 it may be 13mm.

    I went out and looked after work - sure enough - a rather LARGE bolt with an allen head - I never even thought that was the plug. I was used to changing the oil in my Stella GB150 scooter - but it was crankcase oil only (it is a 2 stroke) and the plug was rather obvious with a hex head on the underside.

    I was right - I was staring right at it and never knew it! Doh!

    Regards,

    Yes Matthew Truett and Osborne would be correct. I bought it last May. I am having a blast with it, also doing some mods thanks to the folks here on the forum. I'm waiting on some parts from Quenton right now, should be any day.

    See ya

    Hi Randy & Moon,
    Randy your parts are on the way. Moon be sure to lay bike as far to the flywheel side when draining the oil to make sure ALL the old oil is drained.

    Have fun,
    Quenton

    Hi Quenton, I did the change yesterday - I laid it horizontal and then put a few ounces of fresh through to clean her out. Boy that old oil was black for just going 100 miles.

    Put a fresh 8 ounces in and I'm good to go.

    Regards,

    Matthew
