Question about Motorcycles
Details vary according to the model, but generally:
1. Run the motor long enough that the crankcase is warm.
2. Put the bike up on the center stand.
3. Put a plastic dish/bowl that will hold a few liters underneath the oil drain (usually a bolt on the bottom of the crankcase, check a manual for exact location. )
4. Using the correct wrench, loosen the oil drain.
5. With rubber gloves on, hold the bottom of the oil drain bolt with one hand while you remove the bolt from the bike with the other hand. If the bolt (which may be magentized) has bits of metal clining to it, remove these with a cloth or paper towel.
6. The oil will drain into the pan. Rock the bike back and forth gnetly to get the last few drops out.
7. Now locate the oil filter and remove it (check manual again for how to do this). Replace with fresh filter.
8. Replace oil drain bolt, tightening to correct setting.
9. Fill with fresh oil to the correct amount. Bike should be ready to go.
10. Put used oil into container with lid, have it recycled at a grage or auto service scentre.
