What type of oil and how much does the 92 VT1100 use?


You will need to get 4 quarts of JASO MA rated motorcycle oil, a filter, and a drain bolt washer. Get 10w-40 for cold climate or 20w-50 for warm climate/long distance riding.Do not use any oil that says Energy Conserving on the label , it will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. Synthetic oil will make your bike run cooler and shift easier.Drain the old oil and put the drain bolt back in with a new washer. Change the filter and pour in 3 1/2 quarts of oil. Start the bike and run for a minute. Check the oil level and top up as needed.

My 04' vt1100 is acting like the fuel filter is


you should be able to drain your carburettas without removing them. look for a drain screw on the bottom of the carby bowel. If it is fuel injected, then you may have to replace the injectors.

How do I change the oil filter on a MAZDA 6 4 CYL..


You don't need a special tool. Use a 6mm allen to remove the filter drain plug. It will probably start to spin the filter housing. You can remove the housing by hand or with a regular oil filter wrench.
