LIKE I HAVE SAID BEFORE I HAVE NEVER WORKED ON ANYTHING EVER BEFORE MECHANICALLY IN MY LIFE ....
I JUST ORDERED 300V MOTOR OIL 10W40 (4L) OFF OF AMAZON AND A KN MODEL NUMBER 303 OIL FILTER
I STILL HAVE TO PURCHASE A TORQUE WRENCH (ANY SUGGESTIONS ?) AND THEN I THINK I AM READY......
FROM WHAT I HAVE READ ON THE INTERNET SO FAR...
I SHOULD LET THE BIKE WARM UP FOR A FEW MIN. TO THIN THE OIL OUT ? YEAH ? ANY IDEA TO WHAT DEGREES ?
LOOSEN OIL FILLER CAP AND THEN REMOVE DRAIN PLUG ( RE TIGHTEN TO 21 FT/LB)
THEN REMOVE FILTER (RE TIGHTEN TO 13 FT/LB
FILL NEW OIL FILTER ? AND THEN OIL O RING
REPLACE WASHER ON OIL FILTER ? (NECESSARY?)
ADD 3.1 L (including the oil you poured into the filter)
WHICH SHOULD BE until you see oil between the two marks in the sight glass.
I GOT THIS INFO FROM A "KAWIFORUMS" HOW TO...
IS THIS EVERYTHING I NEED TO DO
...AND THE VERY LAST POST OF THE KAWIFORUMS THREAD IS THE ONLY THING THAT CONFUSES ME BECAUSE IT SAYS...
• Run the bike for a minute or three (make sure the oil icon on the LCD turns off after a few seconds, if it doesn’t you may have a problem) to let the oil circulate through the engine and filter. • Turn the bike off and let the oil drain back into the oil pan. This will take a few minutes.
• Check the sight glass again and add oil until the oil level comes up between the two indicator lines again. (see previous pic) WHY WOULD I DRAIN OIL BACK INTO OIL PAN AT THE END
...IM SURE I WILL BE MADE FUN OF BUT HONESTLY I HAVE NEVER DONE ANYTHING MECHANICAL.... BUT WHAT AM I MISSING HERE WITH THIS LAST STEP ?
DO THEY MEAN THE "OIL PAN" (AS IN RESERVOIR) ON THE BIKE AS OPPOSED TO THE PAN SLID UNDER THE BIKE TO DRAIN INTO ?
OBVIOUSLY IF I DID THAT I WOULD HAVE NO OIL IN THE BIKE !
JUST CONFUSED BY THE WORDING SORRY
AND IF THERE IS ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD DO WHILE CHANGING THE OIL PLEASE LET ME KNOW.............THANKYOU !!!!!!!
P.S. THIS IS THE HOW TO I WAS LOOKIN AT... http://www.kawiforums.com/2009-zx-6r...il-change.html
