How to change motorbike oil?
Need to change your motorbike oil ? Doing it yourself is easy! Let me show you how to change your oil in just 30 minutes! First, remember that your oil should be changed every 5000 km.
You’ll need a seal-tight container for collecting the used oil, a pair of gloves, paper towels, a drain plug gasket, a funnel, an oil filter that’s fits your motorbike, a drain wrench and a filter wrench. That’s it, you’re all set! Place your vehicle on a flat surface and make sure the engine is slightly warm and has been turned off for about one minute.
Place the drain container under the crankcase.
Remove the oil fill plug from the crankcase. Then carefully unscrew the drain plug using the wrench. Be sure to watch for splattering oil, and wait until the oil has completely drained.
Unscrew your old filter. You’re now ready to clean the oil fill plug and drain plug and replace the oil filter gasket.
Pour a small amount of oil into your new filter using the funnel, and deposit a thin layer of oil on the new gasket. Then, clean the oil fill plug and drain plug. Replace the drain plug gasket as well.
Reinstall your filter manually and make sure the drain plug is tightened to the torque specified by the manufacturer.
How do you fill the crankcase with the new oil? Before you go further, check to be sure you’ve chosen an oil recommended by the manufacturer. To do that, look at your motorbike’s service manual.
Now, carefully pour the oil into the crankcase using a funnel.
Wait 2 minutes, then insert the fill plug.
Start up your motorbike and run the engine for a few minutes. Check your oil level again and repeat the process several times if necessary until your oil reaches the maximum level without ever going over.
You’re now set for a safe ride. Stay tuned for new to maintain your engine.
