Default How do I add some engine oil to my 05 Sportsman 800?

Ok I know this is a stupid question....I just bought a used 05 Polaris Sportsman 800 and after checking the engine oil, I noted it was low. I couldn't visually see where to fill oil, even after removing both plastic side covers. The owners manual was absolutely no help....there is no mention of where to locate the oil filler cap and no schematic! Can someone help this helpless newbie?! Thanks in advance.

Make sure you use the oil check procedure in your owners manual, start the engine and let it run for a minute or so then shut it off and check the oil level. If you don't do this you may over fill it.
