I am really surprised you have asked this question! Simple undo the drain plug at bottom of engine, drain the oil and refill with 850 ml (1.5 pints) of 10/40 engine oil.

Don't be surprise.Isn't there a oil filter to change or to clean?I don't have a user manual for my T80.
I want to use Ravenol mineral oil 20w 40.

There is a gauze oil strainer inside the drive side casing which has to be removed to gain access to it, it slides out and you wash it in petrol. It is only there to collect large particles. Probably a good idea to remove and clean it say every 10000 miles or so. I must confess I dont bother as I change oil every 1500 miles so it does not get blocked. Too much trouble to remove side cover and fit new gasket every time. You really should buy a Haynes manual as its covered in there. Yamaha specify 10/40 type SE or SF oil.

Yes but Haynes covers much more than the handbook so well worth buying, plenty to choose from on eBay new and secondhand.

Today i made the oil change.It seems that the engine is running smoothly than before and change the gear better with 20w-40.The climate here is warmer than the UK so i find this oil(20w-40),better!
Hint:i swap the original drain bolt with a new one with magnet.It fit perfectly the Suzuki DR 125/200 magnetic drain bolt. :d\\'-\\':

JohnW,thank you again for all your help! :d\\'-\\':

Have also bought a magnetic drain plug from Hayling Motorcycle Spares https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AFTERMARKET-MAGNETIC-OIL-DRAIN-BOLT-SUMP-PLUG-YAMAHA-T80-T-80-TOWNMATE-83-96-NEW/282916308313?hash=item41df204559:g:yL8AAOSwepJXXP1D
Came today so did an oil change and fitted it. Old plug was getting a bit rusty and needed a new copper washer
