Lay down on the left side of the bike, look underneath where the frame and swingarm meet, on the right side you'll see a hose clamped perpendicular to a plate. That is it.

If the bike has been sitting and the oil level seems low you may need to drain the sump. It is an Allen screw (6mm I think, I just pulled one during a rebuild the other day and no SAE size fit) on the bottom of the case. It will be flush and might not be readily visible if the area is dirty. Avoid using this drain.

If the oil was dramatically lower than when you parked the bike and there is no visible spot where it leaked, run the bit a touch and see if it rises. Sometimes the oil drain siphons back into the engine during storage.

It will depend upon whether you mean the engine oil drain or the Primary/Transmission oil drain. The oil drain for the engine oil is actually NOT a plug. Underneath the engine is a hose that is clamped to a boss on the frame. Loosening the worm clamp and pulling the hose off the boss will cause the oil to dump (you did put the drain pan under there, didn't you?)
