Default Oil Change 101

Steps to change your own oil.

1: Warm engine for a couple minutes. This will thin out the oil making it easier to drain.

2: Remove the brake side lower plastics.


3: Locate drain bolt (see the finger? :lol: )


4: Place drain pan under drain bolt and remove bolt with a 12mm wrench and allow oil to drain


5: Reinstall drain plug. Remember to replace drain bolt washer at every 2nd oil change. You can get these at your Honda parts counter.

6:Time to remove the oil filter. I like to slip a piece of cardboard between the engine case and header pipe to create a little valley for the oil to flow down. If you don't do this, you'll have oil all over your header pipe. Remove the filter by twisting counter-clockwise. You should be able to do this by hand, but it might be in your best interest to buy the correct size filter wrench.


7: Instal new filter. Be sure to rub a little bit of fresh oil on the rubber seal first.

8: Time to fill her up with 3.3 quarts of your favorite oil. Make sure your bike is sitting on both tires and standing straight up and down to check the level in the site glass.

9: Start bike and let it run for 30 seconds or so to circulate the oil and saturate the filter. Re-check oil level and look for any leaks.

Now you can be happy to know that you did this all by yourself 8)

mugoo the type of oil you want is non-energy conserving. Look on the back of the oil label and see if it has the energy conserving oil label on it. Most likely mobil 1 oil will be...
