The service schedule says clean the filter it seems to indicate that a new one is not needed for 4 services (9000kms)however for the price of a new one I would always use new. Having said that I thought I would clean the 'old' one just in case I forgot to get a new one or had to drop the oil between services for some reason. I soaked it in petrol, in a screw lid jar for safety, agitated it, then washed it in clean petrol. This is the o.e item, marked 'Steelbird March 2001' I found lots of small fluff balls coming off, and the fabric was coming unstuck from the steel, certainly not fit for use again, imagine those bits clogging the oil ways, disaster! Like I said, I think for the small cost, best to use new every time, I'll order a stock now! Any one know of a replacement element that's better than the one available please? Many tha,I have always wondered about washing the filter. In India pennys count and people crab over a bike that has any amount of oil in it when it comes time to change it. I am afraid that the washing advice is about as dated as this advice. http://store.royalenfieldusa.com/potato,,,

I dropped the oil and changed the oil filter the other day when to ride my 250ktm sxf and there was a large loss in power any ideas?


Fuel line filters being clogged are a common problem. I can't see how that's related, to oil change,maybe it was just going to happen anyway.

How often do I need to change the oil filter on my night rod 2009?


You can change a LOT of oil filters for the price of one engine overhaul. I change the oil filter EVERY TIME I change oil. It may be overkill but rebuilding any engine is EXPENSIVE these days.

I changed the oil and filter in my 2007 kawasaki


you probably have a leak! It is possible, (depending on what type of oil you put in)
that the oil dissolved the gasket, or removed sludge from an existing hole, causing it to open. but if you dont have any oil spots..well....thats a whole nother story.
terribly sorry!!
i hope this helps in some way!

Questions 500km service.


in both manuals is 4 to 6mm (1/4). I read this to mean total play NOT 1/4' up +1/4 down for a total of 1/2' play correct? 2 - On the oil filter between the cap nut and the oil filter cover was a copper washer in the oil change kit was an o - ring. The o-ring seems too large it squeezes out from beneath the cap nut using only enough tension to compress the oil filter spring. I reused the copper washer. ( Note: the copper washer for the drain plug was also a little oversized, the large o-ring for the cover itself seems fine. ) Did I order the wrong kit? On the order form it states for Original Bullets made 11/98 & on. I own an '08 cast iron engined Classic. 3 - Can the small copper washers be had anywhere.? Other than these minor items the 500 km service is progressing well !!!!!,Questions 500km service.,,,
