Welcome to the forums. You are correct. One is the dipstick and the other is the oil fill. Make sure you use an oil made for wet clutch systems. Honda GN4 is the recommended oil.

Here is a link that should have your owner's manual.

ATV | Owners Manuals | Owning A Honda | Honda MPE

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Also, here is a link to a free downloadable repair manual for the 350 Rancher. It's not for the ES model, but everything should be the same except for the electric shift part. Just right click on the link and then click "Save Link As" and save it to your computer.

AMSOIL Forumla 4-Stroke Oil is an excellent oil and is wet clutch compatible for the transmission.
