When it comes to our Twins bike builds, it's not always about more power or better aesthetic... Every bike could use an infusion of fresh blood from time to time, so we thought we would do a simple video documenting the oil change/service process.
Here's what you will need to get the job done:
Oil- Motorex Power Synt 4T 10W50 (2.8 Liters/3 Quarts)
Filter/Screens- Oil Filter Service Kit
Clean Up- Motorex Moto Clean
And these are the necessary steps:
-Remove oil filler plug.
-Remove oil drain plugs (2) with the magnets, O-rings, and oil screens.
-Take off oil filter cover/Pull oil filter out of the oil filter housing.
-Completely drain the engine oil.
-Thoroughly clean the parts and sealing surfaces.
-Insert the new oil filter.
-Reinstall oil filter cover/screws (6Nm).
-Thoroughly clean magnets and oil screens of the drain plugs.
-Mount the oil drain plugs (2) with new sealing rings (20Nm).
-Fill up with engine oil at the clutch cover (2.8 l).
-Mount and tighten filler plug.
-Start the engine and check that it is oil-tight.
-Check the engine oil level.
*We also recommend using gloves and an appropriate container to store/dispose of used oil.
When finished your motorcycle will be reinvigorated with fresh blood and ready for several thousand more miles of abuse, so get out of the garage and back on the Road to Dirt.
