Most people have this problem after changing the exhaust system. In your case you have to unbolt the exhaust system just to change the oil filter during an oil change. There is an oil filter relocation kit available for around $400 that allows you to both use a spin on filter and not have to unbolt the exhaust system every time you change the oil. The cause of your problem is air leaking past the exhaust o-rings in the head. Buy new exhaust o-ring gaskets for the head and your problem should be solved. If there is a sealing pipe gasket going from the head pipe to the muffler you may have to replace that too. The cause of your problem was probably an oil change where the mechanic replaced the oil filter but did not bother to replace the exhaust o-ring gaskets. Happy riding.
Oil drain plug is located near the bottom of the engine, left side toward the front. The oil filter element is located on the right side of the engine under the cover toward the front. Changing the oil filter usually requires removal of the front exhaust pipe. There is an aftermarket filter relocation kit that replaces the filter element with a spin on filter that mounts on the front of the bike.
o.k easy one this .First get good motorcycle oil 15/40 semi synthetic and a new oil filter first, never use car oil.
Warm the engine up to get good oil flow.
Remove the oil drain plug at the bottom of the engine,dont loose the seal washer.

fill oil filter with oil and oil `O`ring with oil to replace by tight hand pressure only no tools.
Fill engine oil through oil filler cap to correct level between the two marks on the dip stick,bike must be up-right for best accuracy of oil level.
