Step by Step Instructions

  1. Warm up the engine so the oil will drain freely.
  2. Unscrew the oil filler cap located on the right cylinder head using the oil filler cap tool.
  3. Place a drain tray under the bike and unscrew the oil drain plug.
  4. After most of the oil has drained through the drain plug, position the tray closer to the oil filter and remove the filter.
  5. After the oil has drained replace the oil drain plug using a new crush washer. Tighten the drain plug to 32 Nm.
  6. Fill and lubricate the seal of your new oil filter using fresh oil. Hand tighten the filter onto the bike.
  7. Refill the oil. The oil level should be in the middle of the sight glass located on the left side of the bike.
  8. Replace the oil filer cap and start the engine to distribute the oil. Then recheck the level and add oil as needed.
