I had a '99 Gasser but sorry I can't remember.
But, more importantley I don't remember it being a pain in the bum to change the gearbox oil, I certainley never took the clutch cover off when I had it.
I'd be calling the Gas Gas Guru from back then who is Mal Loone. :wink: :wink:
I'm sure his photographic memeory will be able to help you out.

Just had a look at a '99 parts manual on the interweb thingy & its shows an "Oil Plug" just above & more horizontal than the kickstarter. It should have a copper washer under the oil filler plug.

Gary is correct it is just near the kickstart on the right side case.
Please see attached pic. It's item #9.
