There is a chaincase on the left side. Remove the chaincase cover to let the oil out, then replace it after you check the chain and sprockets. Refill the case with a synthetic fluid.
There is no air filter, just an airbox. Clean it out, though.
Go to the misc parts section of this forum, then click on parts links. List of aftermarket/vintage listed there.
NOt many upgrades unfortunately....
