Quotes from the post:
 

3. Remove the drain bolt from the left side below the ignition cover. This drains the "tank" section Replace the bolt and the dipstick.

5. Remove the drain bolt from the crankcase, located behind the right side frame rail on the bottom rear corner of the transmission, angled straight out toward the frame. Replace when it finishes draining.

Both are 12mm heads, and should have copper washers behind them.  Download the manual from the link included in the write up, and it will have pictures.
