Just do it yourself.
Look under the bike and u will see the oil drain bolt.
drain into a pan with bike on a bike stand, maybe hit up cycle gear sunday for some oil. ask them how many quarts for your bike.
Can also change the filter if u want. I change my filter every OTHER oil change.
probably use about 4 quarts or so. no big deal. take u maybe 15 minutes TOPS.

Jimmy, get a service manual if the owners manual doesn't give directions for changing the oil. Just be careful not to overtorque the drain bolt when reinstalling it. I also change my oil filter every other oil change.

Jimmy, where do you ride out of Pearland? I am in Pearland also.
