    just pull the oil plug to drain it and there is a lil plate on the side of the motor with three 8mm bolts that is covering the oil filter be sure to put the oil filter in the right direction or it will fry the motor and yes the oil is the same.

    UNDER it right n the dead middle theres a bolt bigger hole than all the other jus unscrew it and oil comes flyn ya you can use the same oil four wheller oil is oil and the oil filter on the right side of the machine engine theres this cirle thick spot in the motor lower left corner on right side 3 mabey 4 bolts pull it out after unscrewn if ya think ya need a filter and jus swap for a new one then your set i would change filters every 3 oil changes but if you mud alot i would say every change and to turn the oil light off jus hold all the buttons for a few seconds than it goes bye bye that should be it any more questions jus shoot me a pm

    go to advance auto parts and tell them you need a filter and just buy some valvoline atv oil it will be cheaper than going to the honda dealer.
