The oil fillter is on the left side of the bike . It is inside the bike. Look by the rear brake, you will see a cap like fitting with two screws on either side. Remove the screws and the filtter will be exposed. I used the agip fully synthetic oil on my last oil change. I have no pics to send but I hope that this will help.:peace:

A complete oil and filter change should reuire 3.9 litres of oil, as far as which oil I personally do not use full synthetic in the bike or in my previous Aprilia. I stick to using recommended semi sythnthetic,.

If you're changing the filter it may take more than 3.9, but don't overfill it. Fill it to the lower level of the sight glass, run the engine for a bit to get the oil into the oil filter chamber, then adjust, but don't fill it to the full fill line in the sight glass. Do a search and check out the posts on the bulge in the oil reservoir tank and seams splitting on the reservoir tank. Jury's still out on exactly why it happens, but read and you shall be enlightened. I change my oil after every track day or race and keep a very close eye on the bulge in my tank. Don't forget the little magnet to the rear of the oil filter. You should also take that out and wipe it off. It's a flat 6mm or so hex screw. :)

I don't think your fairing will go on with that monster installed. The falco tank is thicker because it's bare to the world.;)
