Great Thread.. I will be doing my 600 mile maintance this week.. Thanks
I'll be changing my own oil from now on. Pisses me off to have to have them change the oil to "maintain the warranty". Thanks for a great post!
It is better to ride a slow bike fast, than a fast bike slow.
That being said, it sure rocks to ride a fast bike fassssssst
The "keeping the warranty valid" line is bs. Keep receipts for the oil and oil filters and there should not be any problems. At least thats what BIM in Vancouver told me............
Excellent write up, Holeshot. I didn't know about the oil tank screen, so I'll be cleaning that out on my next change! I hadn't noticed the snap style clip on the oil tank hose either. That's going bye-bye as well.

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
Or just pay the dealer and get that stamp and keep that all inclusive 4 year warranty,
but very usefull if your t is a few years old
As well as the oil change the service manual says the fork oil needs to be changed too. After having a look in the book it says I need special tools to get the cap off fully, is this true or can you work around it?

Sweet Jeebus, thats an awesome garage. Great thread, too!
Very nice write up. i read in another thread where guy's were stripping the bolt on the oil tank because of poor machining of the threads. So you obiviously torqued yours to 15nm with no problems. I'm curious what poor machining would look like. hate to strip a bolt. Anyone have any infor on this ??
Stripped drain threads was mainly a problem on the Falco's which had cast aluminum oil tanks.
