Engine Oil Change

Warm up the engine so that the oil will pick up any sedi-
ment and drain easily. Then stop the engine.
Support the motorcycle perpendicular to the ground, and
place an oil pan beneath the engine.
Remove the engine drain plug [A], and let the oil drain
completely.
If the oil filter is to be changed, replace it with a new one.
Check the gasket at the drain plug for damage.
Replace the gasket with a new one if it is damaged.
After the oil has completely drained out, install the drain
plug with the gasket, and tighten it.
Torque - Engine Oil Drain Plug: 29 N·m (3.0 kgf·m, 22 ft·lb)
Fill the engine with a good quality motor oil specified in
