very easy to do yourself, any cycle shop you can get a oil filter.

if your headed to the kawi shop, you'll need oil filter part number 16099-003. If you go to cycle gear, get a HiFlo filter part number HF401. Your bike takes 1.9Litres of oil(2 quarts). 10w40 is recommended for that unit. If you do get the parts from the kawi shop, also pick up a new crush washer for your oil drain plug part number 92065-097. It's recommended you change that washer at every service, but not absolutely necessary. BTW, that should be an easy job, just be careful not to damage the O-ring under the oil filter cover. Hope this helps. JET
