Default oil filter and drain plug locations

I have a 2006 honda Rubicon 500. I found the large oil drain plug but can not find the second. ALso I have looked all over the engine and can not find the filter location. Does any one have a pic or a location of a picture of the location of the oil filter . Thanks for your help.

Are you sure there is 2 drain plugs on a 2006 model? What manual/book have you. The filter is only in either of 2 places i think on any honda quad, its either on the right hand side of the engine housed by 3 bolts behind a little round looking lid or its bolted up to thr underneath of the engibe but this is only on the new models.

I could be wrong

Yeah I think there are two, however I only drain from the bottom of the crankcase, and I think the filter is on the bottom, I've got a Rancher and an 06 Rubi, so I always get confused... but I'm almost positive its on the bottom !!!

Yes there are 2 drain plugs, one for the motor and one for the oil tank. You will need to drop the skid plate to get at the filter.

When you say the bottom of the oil tank, Is that the bottom side of where you put the oil in? Also, you fill the oil tank from the one opening for both locations?

Once you get the oil tank to the full mark you will have to run the motor for a few minutes then recheck/add more oil. Also im told (hasnt happend to me) that its easy to over tighten the drain plugs and ruin the threads so be carefull.

get the oil to a safe operating level. then run it till ur oil is hot cause oil expands. if you check it when its cold you will overfill it

I found the intial plug, and drained it. Took off the skid plate and saw another plugin the middle, removed it, drained a little, removed the plug under the place you put in the oil and drained it. What did I drain out of the middle plug, looked like oil? Still can not find the oil filter. Any idea where to look from these locations. thanks, sorry about the questions.
