Question about 1998 Honda VT 750 C2 Shadow
I need to know how to drain the oil and change the filter on a 1998 vt 750 honda
The drain plug is on the left center engine casing, near the front of the case at the lowest point of the case. Warm up the engine, turn it off then drain the oil after removing the oil fill dipstick on the top of the casing. The bike should be resting on the side stand.
The filter is at the rear of the engine near the bottom. It unscrews by turning counter clockwise. Put a thin film of oil on the new filter rubber seal and threads. Tighten hand tight then 1/4 turn more, ( 22 foot pounds of torque ). Use a genuine Honda filter. Aftermarket filters are inferior and can cause the bike major damage if they fail. I have seen them collapse internally and plug up the oil flow. The engine is pretty much trash after this happens. Aftermarket filters are cheap for a reason.
Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Up North use 20w40, down South use 20w50 motor oil. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell.
