    It is in a cavity underneath the engine. You will need a thin walled filter wrench to remove and install it.

    Or this one. Less wordy, more concise and WAY better pictures!

    where

    As they say - underneath the engine, left front corner. You don't have to remove any plastic to see it or to change it. You just have to be willing to lie on the ground with all the fire ants to see it.

    Since he has an 1150RT he is going to have to remove the 4 X 3mm screws to get the plastic belly pan off so he can see the oil filter in the bottom of the engine eh?
    And the drain plug is under there too.

    As for the fire ants, dang! I'm not changing my oil in Florida!
