Drain oil. Use degreaser to clean area. Use JB Weld & allow to set up properly before adding oil.

How do i change the oil?

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.

Oil change in a 1986 chevy nova

Very easy on this car. You don't even need to put the car up if you're not a big person. Remove the oil fill cap on the valve cover the warm and off engine. Unbolt the oil pan drain bolt at the bottom (don't lose the gasket) and let the oil drain out. Clean off bolt hole face and put the gasket and bolt back on. Bolt does not need much torque. Unscrew the oil filter on the front of the engine (might need filter wrench). Clean off filter face and make sure old gasket is removed (usually comes off with the filter). Put on new filter. Do not overtighten

While underneath, look around for leaks, damage to CV joint boots, cracks in hoses, etc.

Fill with about 3.5 qt 10-30W oil. Put oil fill cap back on. Run engine for about 30 sec. Shut off and check for leaks. Check oil level on dipstick after a couple minutes of engine running and add oil if needed.

Mark date and odometer in your log book. Recycle used oil.

Oil type do i put in gsxr 750 2001

Any oil that is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate. 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Car oils use different additives. Do not use any oil that says Energy Conserving on the label . It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. If you use Synthetic oils, they will help your bike run cooler and shift easier.Suzuki sells a fairly inexpensive full synthetic motor oil ($7 to $8).You will need 4 quarts of oil, an oil filter,a drain bolt washer, and anoil filter wrench. Pour in 3 plus quarts, whatever it takes to hit the high mark on the dipstick or viewing window . Run the engine to fill the dry filter. Recheck the oil level and top off to the high mark. You will use between 3 and 4 quarts depending on how much is left in the motor after you drain the old oil. You can reuse the aluminum crush washer if it is not out of shape (looks flat like a normal washer)but keep a spare on hand in case the bolt was overtightened on a previous oil change and the washer is contorted out of shape. Remember to only tighten the oil filter and drain bolt enough so they seal. Do not over tighten or you will have problems next oil change.

I just bought my bike off of a neighbor and was wandering where the oil filter is located on the bike

There is a round finned cover sticking out of the front of the motor with a large bolt going through the center of the cover. Use a 6 point socket to loosen the center bolt. The center bolt is almost always overtightened. Be careful not to strip the head of the bolt. The filter should come off with the cover. When you put the new filter back on consider replacing the o-ring on the bolt and the sealing bolt on the cover. With the filter cup in the palm of your hand the bolt should be sticking up through the cover. First put the spring over the bolt , then the filter washer (this is usually missing or still stuck to the old filter), then place the filter in the cup , and put the assembly on the bike so the spring is pushing the filter against the motor. Snug the center bolt enough to seal the system , but do not overtighten the bolt or it will cause you problems next oil change.

Oil Change instructions for a 2007 FLHRS . Is there an online instruction link available for changing the oil on my 2007 FLHRS

I've never seen an online link but Chilton's sells a manual that will tell you most anything you want to know.

To change the oil, you must first drain the oil tank. Looking underneath the bike on the bottom of the transmission, you'll see two drain plugs. One will be in the middle of the tank and one will be towards the left side of the bike and slightly forward. The one on the left side and forward is your oil drain. Remove it to drain your oil.

While the oil is draining, change out the filter. Simply screw the old one off and install the new one. You may have to take the crank sensor out of the crankcase to get the filter out. Remove the screw holding it in, pull it out. When you get the new filter back on, reinstall the sensor. Don't overtighten the bolt holding the sensor in.

Now refill the oil tank. I think your FLHRS takes four quarts of oil. Put in three and check the level with the bike on the stand. Fill to the "Full Cold" mark is reached.

If you drain the transmission oil, remove the small plug and refill with 20-24 ounces of Harley Davidson trans lube.

If you wish to drain and change the primary lube, remove the drain plug on the bottom of the primary case and the "derby cover" over the clutch. Once drained, replace the drain plug and stand the bike straight up. Add 40-44 ounces of H-D transmission/primary lube or fill until level just comes to the bottom of the clutch spring.

Your bike originally came with Syn3 lubricant in all three places.

Good Luck.
