You have had it for 10 months which is alittle past due. Even though you only put 1k on it.


then again I like having fresh oil in my bikes, kinda a**l about it.


Sometimes Ill get lazy and have some one do it for me, usually when I'm having something else done.

But it is fairly easy to do. Saves some dough!

Well one problem is the life of the oil last used in the bike. Do you know what type of oil was last used? A synthetic will have a longer shelf life so 10 months may not be to bad but, regular oil will begin to break down after about 3 months. Of course everything with oil is based upon the situation it is placed in.. as with everything else in life.

You do not need a stand...!!! Is really easy to change it, just DO NOT over torque the plug when installing it back. Also install a new cooper crush washer in the oil plug.

Get whatever oil you want (Synthetic is the best) and a "Purolator PureOne" oil filter.

If you are riding in the Katy area, feel free to PM and I will help you with the change.

I have both front and rear stands do you have swingarm spools? did you buy your Oil and filter do you need to change/inspect your your Ail Filter and Spark plugs? Mo City sounds far but if your up for a drive to Cypress I can help you lemme know Super easy job.
