I have borrowed a 2007 or 2008 Foreman ES and want to check the fluids.

Where will I find the engine oil fill cap?

Where will I find the coolant fill cap?

Where do I fill the handlebar brake fluid reservoir?

Where will I find other brake fluid reservoirs?

Where/Do I need to buy an online manual to complete these maintenance checks?

Apologies for the newbie questions, but that's what I am......

If it is 2007, this manual will answer most all your questions:

If a 2008, there are no after-market manuals out yet for it, but most of the info in the above manual will apply.
But, the oil fill is on the side of the engine, black cap about an inch (25mm) in diameter. The oil check is on the other side, and smaller.

All Foreman are air cooled. The little radiator you see is an oil cooler.

Only the front brakes are hydraulic. The front brake reservoir (on the handlebars) has a lid that you remove to top off the brake fluid. Take care with the screws, they strip easily. It uses standard auto brake fluids, of the highest current ratings. The rears are mechanical (cable) and use no fluids.

Welcome to ATVSource. Enjoy your borrowed ride. :mrgreen:
