The proper instructions are on pages 6-10 thru 6-12 of the owners manaul. If you don not have a copy you can view one here.

Here is a list of oil filters which will fit the 'liners, besides the OEM filter:
This info was on the forum some time back, filters for Liners:

  • Amsoil ……………………… (SMF103) chrome (SMF103C)
  • Bosch ……………………… (3300) (3330) (3323)
  • Mobil One…………………… M108
  • BOSCH……………………….3300 3323
  • K&N…………………………….KN-303
  • NAPA GOLD……………...1358
  • PUROLATOR……………….ML16817
  • Purolator PureONE.....PL14612 Buy @ Amazon.com 2/$5.88
  • Purolator PureOne......PL14610 Buy @ Amazon.com 2/$5.88
The 14612 is the short filter. The longer one, which also fits the Liner, is the 14610 model (in case it matters).
  • STP…………………………...SDF13
  • WIX…………………………..51358
  • FRAM………………………...6017A
  • HASTINGS…………………LF-113
  • HI FLO………………………HF-303
  • EMGO……………………….10-82220
  • PER-FORM…………………J-503
  • Super Tech………………..ST7317 (Wal-Mart)
The Wal-Mart ST 6607 is a little smaller than the stock filter and the 7317 is maybe a half inch longer. Both will work fine.

You will want to change the crush washers on the plugs.
The crush washers can be obtained at your nearest Yamaha dealer, or similar washers can be obtained at Advanced Auto. The size is 1/2 (or M14) called oversize, crush washers.
Oil-tite part #65310
They come in a 3 pack.

How many litres of oil does a 2007 Yamaha Roadliner take?? Thanks Guy


The manual says that the bike holds 5.18 US quarts WITH a filter change. I change the filter with every oil change. If you don't intend to remove the filter, make sure you know your fluid capacities.

The instruction calls for putting in half the oil - 2.6 quarts - into the bike (make sure you replace the filler cap!), starting the bike and giving it a few revs to circulate the oil. Shut off the bike and add the rest of the oil.

Where is the oil fill hole on a stratoliner 2006 1900


  • There are a total of three plugs. Two of them are under the engine and the other one is under the crank case. The fill hole is on the bottom left front of the motor between the frame rail coming out of the bottom left side. Remove the oil fill plug out out of the front left bottom side of the inside of the frame rail. It's a tight fit so you will need a open ended wrench.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

Do you people think that a valve set is needed every 25,000 kms. sure there is going to be wear and tear in the valve train,but is it that great. this again is on a 06 stratoliner. thanks for your imput...


I would think the valve set should last at least 100,000 km (60,000 miles minimum) would be in order. You should not have a problem like that unless your using bad/cheap oil or fuel with too much ethanol. Use only JASO MA rated motorcycle oil.
