The oil in your frame should be drained out when you change your oil. You should drain the bottom end first, then drain the frame incase there is anything left in it ... Throw a new filter at it with 1.2 quarts of good 4t oil and call it a day ... The carb may be a crap shoot ... I have an 04' and clean it out twice a year because I think it matters ... My buddy has an 05' and I cleaned it for him 2 years ago, I haven't touched it since ...

It's your engine and trans oil. Read all of the following:
