Not sure! did you get the owners manual with the quad if so check in the section on changing oil and it will shoe you where to check.

Thanks....that is the problem...no manual...I am thinking that the engine oil does both...one side with dip is to check...other side with plug is to fill....probably 10-40 oil does both

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.

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.
