gearbox oil! where is it?

not had my k1200rs (97) for long and i have noticed on this forum and in the small booklet that came with the bike, that unlike all the previous japanese bikes i've had there appears to be a seperate gearbox to the engine oil.
i've had a quick look but cant find where to drain or fill the gearbox.

The tranny drain plug is on the underside of the engine, in the back / right area.
Ya can't miss it, it has a whopping big 14mm allen head plug.

The fill plug is on the side of the engine, a little further back from the oil fill

send me a private message with an email address and I'll take some photos of mine and send to you tonight.

The fill plug is above the rear brake lever. You can see it in the picture.
