2008 GSXR 750 Oil/Filter Change...

There has GOT TO BE an easier way to change the oil/filter on the Gixxer without having to pull off the whole fairing! Is there a way???

Be sure to put some aluminium foil around the exhaust so you dont have to cook off oil later.

Over a year with quick clips on daily street use with no problems at all. It is more of a thread/cam lock combo than a straight thread. Never would have thought of fairing theft. Now I'm debating using regular fasteners. Ever priced Aprilia plastics?

On my 04 ZX-10R and 05 ZX-6R, taking off the lowers is quick and easy.
Never been an issue for me, sounds like you shoulda bought a Kawi dood

+1 on the aluminum foil on the headers.

Here's an oil change how-to I re-posted.
