Attempting to drain the counter balance oil but a few ounces of green fluid came out. The plug is on the bottom just forward of the starter. It's a 10mm plug with a Phillips slot. Angled about a 45 degrees compared to the floor. After closer inspection it appear to below the output shaft to the primary clutch. I think the counter balance oil drain plug is a few inches closer to the centerline. Any ideas on what and where to fill the green fluid from?

It was the crankcase drain. Unless I'm wrong the oil pump supplies the crankcase oil gallery from the 2 stroke oil tank. So crisis adverted.

Why don't you lift the seat and see what the counter balancer reservoir has in it? It holds 3 ounces and it independent of the rest of the oiling system. Luck! :cowboy:
