-warm the engine a bit to better
drain the oil.
-remove the engine drain plug
on the bottom left of the
engine. Remove the spin-on oil filter
to the rear of the drain plug.
-remove the oil dipstick to
help the oil drain easier.
-replace the drain plug gasket
and tighten drain plug 20-22 ft lbs.
-oil the new filter gasket before
replacing the filter.
-Hand tighten only.
-add 2 quarts of 10W40 motorcycle oil.
-run the bike briefly and recheck
the oil level on dipstick with the bike level.
It should take another half quart
or so to be full.
Check for leaks, that's it.
