It's pretty easy.

1. Remove left side fairing (The whole left side)
2. Unscrew oil drain bolt. Wait until all has drained.
3. Replace oil drain bolt and tighten to 28.8 lb-ft.
4. Replace fairing.
5. Fill with clean oil.

Well, the bodywork on an '05 is different than that on an '07. You're lucky if you don't have to deal with all those attachment points. It's easy enough to get to the plug without completely dismounting the panel, but not the filter.
