    OIL CHANGE

    YOU GOT A LITTLE OIL CAN ON YOUR DASH??? ITS TIME TO CHANGE IT


    this is iries post on what to do ..http://www.apriliaforum.com/forums/s...26&postcount=5

    tells you every step... it is a good post
    BUT I WAS ....REMOVE THE WHAT....... ITS WHERE... HUH ???

    truthfully i just am also blind and couldn't see in the micro pics in the manual... so AFTER BREAKING OUT THE MAGNIFYING GLASS i took pics of where everything is... again for the newbees because the first thing i did was remove what looks like a drain bolt and it wasn't ....it was the FCV valve ...this one is a little different ..hope the pics help someone

    FYI
    GET YOUR OIL NOW !!! IT TAKES 10 -60
    IT IS HARD TO FIND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO JUST WALK INTO A MC SHOP AND PICK IT UP
    YOU CAN ORDER IT FROM THE AF1 STORE ATTACHED TO THIS FORUM

    BC 61 HERE SAID BMW CAR AND MC DEALERS HAVE 10 60

    THESE ARE THE TORQUE SPECS FOR THINGS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT ON THE FCV VALVE
    Oil drain plug (below shift lever) - 13.28 ftlb (18 Nm)
    FCV / PRV - 14.75 ftlb (20 Nm)
    oil filter cover - 18.44 ftlb (25 Nm)
    gearbox drain plug - 13.28 ftlb (18 Nm)
    gearbox level check bolt - 7.23 ftlb (9.8 Nm)

    OIL DRAIN


    OIL FILTER IS BEHIND HERE SPRING BEHING CAREFUL REMOVING


    SUMP TANK DRAIN AND SITE TUBE IS JUST ABOVE


    OIL FILL



    SITE TUBE...DO NOT OVER FILL 1250 CC CHECK STANDING BIKE UPRIGHT ..RUN IT FOR 2-5 MIN SHUT IT OFF AND CHECK ..AT SIGHT TUBE ..IF YOU GET TO MUCH IN ....IT WILL END UP IN YOU AIR BOX... THEN BELLY PAN ...THEN REAR TIRE ..AND YOU WILL END UP ON YOUR BUTT...DON'T ASK HOW I KNOW...






    FCV VALVE ...LONG THIN SPRING CAME OUT WITH BOLT ...BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO OVER TORQUE ..WILL STRIP ..AND VERY DIFFICULT TO FIX..USE TORQUE WRENCH..
    CLEAN LOOK FOR SCORES REPLACE IF NECESSARY...IT MAY NOT COME OUT RIGHT AWAY ..IT WILL USUALLY COME OUT ONCE THE OIL STARTS TO DRAIN ..AND JUST FALL INTO THE PAN ..OR YOU MAY NED TO WIGGLE IT A LITTLE USING THE BOLT ..


    GEAR BOX DRAIN



    GEAR BOX WEEP HOLE YOU MUST REMOVE THE REAR BRAKE ARM TO ACCESS
    do not fill gear oil with this removed ...use it to check level 5 to 10 min after adding 550 cc to the gear box fill hole ..stand bike upright to check it ...takes a while to pass through a little hole in the case and get to the gear box.. especially if the oil is thick...75/90 is recommended in the manual some run different .. many threads on this but that is what is recommended....



    GEAR BOX FILL ...ANOTHER REASON TO GET AN AFTERMARKET EXHAUST ADD 550 CC OF GEAR OIL



    LAST THING GO HERE

      good info, does the gear oil drain plug have anything on top of the spring that came out with it?
