    Thanks to dxnomad (Rick)







    I have taken several photo's of my oil change in an effort to help guide one through the oil change process. Veterans please scrutinize this and if necessary I will edit this post. PM me on corrections so these will not cloud the main post. Please , no preferential comments about the brand of oil, etc. This is just a guide to help avoid the pitfalls others have made, and also a couple of trouble spots to look for.

    What you need:

    TW200/Oil/Container to catch old oil/Funnel/5mm hex wrench/19mm-6point socket and ratchet/8mm socket/10mm wrench/clean towels/WD-40



    Service Points:

    Oil Drain Plug



    Oil Filter/Strainer Cover



    Trouble Spots:

    Base Gasket leak



    Shifter oil seal leak



    Remove the drain plug (under spring tension) and drain the oil.(19mm-6pt. socket)



    Clean the strainer



    Clean the drain plug-I have Mules Mag Plug.Inspect the o-ring.

    Remove oil filter/strainer cover.(5mm hex and 8mm socket) Position bolts in the same pattern as removed.Inspect o-ring.



    Check o-ring on oil fill cap/plug for damage and missing.



    This is what you should see when the cover is removed.



    Oil filter/strainer. Notice the junk? If damaged replace with Yamaha Part Number: 5HO-13440-09-00 Spray WD-40 or low pressure air from inside out to remove junk.



    Clean the oil filter cavity. Note o-ring on bottom bolt hole. Inspect.



    Install cleaned filter/strainer- this end goes in first.Your filter MUST have the four holes like this one. I don't care what the parts dept. says.There have been WAY TOO MANY ENGINE FAILURES due to mislabeled filter boxes. FOUR SLOTS & FOUR HOLES!!!! Refer to above part number for the correct filter/strainer.



    You should now see this.If so, replace cover.



    Replace everything you removed and fill with oil to this level, shown with the bike upright.



    Start the motor and loosen the bolt with the phillips head several turns.(10mm wrench) Oil should run out of here. If not shut the motor off and reinspect the filter.





    This is not all inclusive of how every bolt should be removed or tightened. This is for those who feel confident enough to change their oil and when in doubt, ASK !!

    I hope you enjoy this,..............Rick.
