Default Changing Tramission Fluid

This is a really stupid questions but before I mess up my bike I want to make sure I know what I'm doing. I have a 06 Kawasaki 450f and I need to change the tranmission fluid but don't know where the plug is. Can anyone help? also were do I pour the new fluid? I know I'm new at all this but I need to start somewhere right. Thanks for the help.

The best place to start is with a service manual. The engine and trans use the same oil. There should be a large plug under the engine and an obvious filler plug on top, usually on the clutch side. Remove the plug and drain the oil into a large enough container, replace the plug, tighten to 20~30 lb/ft and refill with the appropriate amount of 10w40 motorcycle oil....fairly straight forward.
