As in any vehicle there will be metal in the oil that you remove from it. how ever it is very small and you don't see it unless you really look for it . if it is an excessive amount the you will most likely be needing some major work on either the upper end (i.e. ring job) or clutch plates. get some militec 1 and add to the gas and crank case to try and slow down the ware. have it checked out by a reputable bike mechanic before you do some really expensive damage.

Synthetic motor oil - Does it last any longer than regular motor oil ?

No. It does not last any longer than regular motor oil. The oil filter cannot pick up metal particles that are 50 times smaller than the diameter of the human hair. They accumulate over time. By the time you have driven 6000 miles, these micro sized metal particles start to cause excessive wear on the engine. This motor oil still has plenty of life in it. But it must be changed no later than 6000 miles, due to an inadequate oil filter that cannot pick up micro sized metal particles. All oil filters allow these micro sized metal particles to pass right through it. If your car has the feature of % of oil life left, you still need to change the motor oil at or before 6000 miles, regardless of the % of oil life left. It does not matter what brand of synthetic motor oil that you buy. They all need to be changed at the same interval that was stated in this article.

How often to change the motor oil in your car, regardless of how much % of oil...

Never go over 6,000 miles of driving on any motor oil, including synthetic oil. The oil filter cannot pick up 100% of metal particles out of the oil. The smallest metal particles pass right through the oil filter and go through to your entire engine. Each day that you drive, more metal particles get into the oil. After 6,000 miles of driving, there is enough micro sized metal particles to start causing excessive wear on your engine. Millions if not trillions of these metal particles go into your engine every minute. The additives in synthetic motor oil will last 15,000 miles, but these additives do not remove any of these micro sized metal particles. Just because synthetic oil costs a lot more, does not mean that it will last any longer than regular oil. Yes, synthetic oil will help your engine to last up to twice as long, as compared to regular oil, but only if you do not drive more than 6,000 miles.

I have a kawasaki ninja 250 when i chang the oil is it ok if i dont change the filter


No... you should always change the oil filter. The oil filter is designed to keep your oil clean of particulates that can damage your engine. Not changing it every oil change can reduce your engine life.

Where is the engine oil filter?


That'll be a hard question!

Oil Filter is............... the one that filters all the dirt,grimes, fine metal, solid objects and anything that ALiENS to the lubrication of ur engine! Oil will pass thru that filter, filters everything, and then goes back to ur engine, that makes every METAL to move freely w/o DRAG!

Hope that slips out everything in ur probs!

Oil leaking from the gasket on the metal piece under oil fltr

Make sure that the oil filter is tight. Usually they only leak if dirt was in the gasket when the filter was installed or the filter wasn't tightened enough.

Oil filter position

The oil filter is underneath the bike in the front where the large square gray oil pan is located. There are two bolts. One is surrounded by a large circle which is about the size of your new oil filter. Remove the bolt and there will be a small washer then the circular metal plate which cups the oil filter. This has a gasket which seals against leaks and inside of the cupped metal plate is the oil filter. Remove replace, and reinstall the parts in the same order. ,,,

Suzuki Grand Vitara Oil Filter Replacement Disaster

Four or six cylinder engine and behind or front of the oil filter? Looked under my GV 2007 2.7 V6 and can not locate a shiny metal box next to the oil filter. Only thing that was shiny was the exhaust manifold and oil sump which are quite hard to break or puncture. If it was the oil sump you will have to remove it and get it welded as a bog will not hold on heated engine parts.
