checking trans. oil

ok im not a compleat idiot, but i cant find this one out. i have an '89 yz250WR and i need to see if the trany oils full and cant figure out how? theres no dipstick on the fill cap like every other bike i have ever owned, and in the manual it says to open a bolt on the clutch cover? but i cant find what they're talking about. and in the picture the photo is REALY close and i cant find any thing that looks like the part they are showing.

Re: checking trans. oil

on the clutch cover there is a bolt with a 8mm head that sticks into the actual clutch cover, it is prob about a 1/4 inch long, prob has a copper squish washer behind it. the bolt does not hold anything in like the cover or water pump. it will be behind the water pump and in front of the clutch. or you could just drain it and fill it 50cc's past what the book recommends. i heard this helps with clutch slippage and i have always done it with my bikes. just unscrew all the bolts one at a time. if oil comes out then that is the one. put the ones back in after you do it so it doesnt loosen the cover if you take the wrong one out. also lean the bike over so if it is low you will still see the seepage. i never use this since it can be inaccurate sometimes.

ACTUALLY I THINK THE OLDER BIKES USED PHILLIPS heads, and the location i am sure has changed over the years, well at least ya found so thats all that counts.
