It's the big round cap in the middle of the right side engine cover. You would think it would be on the top of the motor like a normal bike, but no, that would be too easy. It will help to have a buddy hold the bike over so you can get the oil in. It's a pain in the a#$!

Not only a pain in the butt...but after you have to remove the air cover to use the wrench to open the plug then the hole is so close to the clutch the oil barely had room to pour in, too. Forget about a normal funnel going in. You can bump the clutch around to get a little better clearance, but it still takes forever to dribble 3 quarts of oil for a normal change.
