    SHO oil change

    Ok ok.. I looked through the DYI post. I'm coming up on the first oil of my 20013 FZS. When extracting the oil should I have the engine level, nose slightly up or down? Or do it like I do the wife's lawn mower, pull the dipstick and roll it on the side.

    I just leave mine level when I do as I change it earlier than normal so I am not worried about getting every ounce out. If you want to get as much out as possible jack up the side opposite the dipstick.

    And be careful to not overfill it with the new Oil. Note how much you take out and be cognizant of how much you put back in. Always check the Dipstick 3+ times to get an accurate reading . . . you want to see 3 Dipstick readings exactly the same.

    No matter what you do, you can't get every last drop of old oil out of the Ski . . . so don't worry about it. Just keep your oil changes regular and you will be fine. JB

    CaptainReza has a great little oil change video here,
    not the same model as yours but has some good general tips:

    Well with engine level F to R and slightly low on the right side I was able to extract 4ltrs using a HT Moto 6ltr pump. I was getting to pour in the Yamalube 4W. Oh for the record a K&N-303 will not fit. Threads too large and sealing gasket diameter is too small to seal. Not sure who on here cross referenced it but their off. So monday I'll take a ride to the dealer for a Yamaha filter.

    Also I found by rocking it side to side with my hand I was able to extract a lil more oil.

    AC-Delco PF53 fits and is available at advance auto parts or your gm dealer. Cost is about $5. That is what I use on my ski.
