Changing Tranny Oil?

Got my 08 K1200S 9k miles two weeks ago,Changed oil engine and FD this week
but haven`t figured out where to drain and refill for transmission?
Do I have to remove faring? On my R1200R this was very easy to spot,but on the K
I`m lost. Nothing in the manual(I just bought) and the forums go on forever on how to
change oil and FDs. Doesn`t anyone ever change their gear oil in Trannies?
Is the engine and tran oil together?
Thanks for any replies...
PS...Great forum!

The engine and transmission share the same oil.

Easy to tell you've owned BMWs all your life, eh? As noted, trans runs in the engine oil, so you done did it already....
