Usually on the left half way up. Hard to get to ESP if you have a winch.

Have to move the winch out of the way. Top left angled toward the front of the bike is the fill.

It's very stupid. They didn't rework it when they swapped the radiator and winch in 2011 making it hard to get to now that the winch gets in the way.

Its not bad just un bolt the winch from the mount and slide it toward the right side of the bike. Have to pull the front bottom plastic off.

Only takes an extra 15 or 20 minutes to take the plastic off and remove the 4 bolts that hold the winch in and put everything back together.

EDIT: i figured that out looked in my manual. They had it right

Measure out the correct amount of fluid and put it in through the vent line. You should have got what looks like a ketchup lid with your oils. Just put the vent hose right on the bottle.

If doing it this way does that mean I don't have to take everything off? Just move the winch? Where's the vent line BTW lol

That is such a good idea. But I have never gotten that kinda lid with the bottles.
