Nice post, RSL. Luckily I haven't been doing anything wrong.

I hit the filter screen with brake parts cleaner to get all the deposits off and let dry.

And don't overfill! I let the oil drain for almost an hour last change and followed specs for replacement volume. Probably ended up .2 qt over and it sucked to rectify. I'd recommend stopping at 3 qts, start up, let settle, check and repeat.

So I'm thinking of doing an oil only change. I just bought the bike and the original owner did the first service but it was probably over a year ago, yet bike only has 3,200 miles on her. I think I'll just do the oil and leave the filter for the next change. I'm surprised how dark the oil looks through the glass.

Anyone see any problem with doing as I said in above post? Any idea on how much oil I should try? 2.5 quarters at first? (America)

I owned my bike since new and did the 600 mile oil change plus another at 2000 and another at 6000. Now I'll stick to ~5k oil changes. I would definitely do another one now if it's been a year.


I've been looking at that Amsoil 10w50. Seems like a good option.

I change oil either by miles, say 5,000, or by time, annual minimums.

Every detail is listed above.

The screen should be cleaned every third oil change.

Thanks. This is an incredibly helpful thread with info. FWIW- I changed the oil without changing the filter. From the best I can tell- 2.5 quarts does it. I haven't checked with the engine completely cold yet.

I think that oil filter replacement is critical because of the important job it does in keeping an engine clean.

The Amsoil filter shown above is so far superior to any paper filter that it is not even comparable.

Clean and effective lubrication is a key to engine performance and life.

I may be on the extreme end of this topic. My thought is that if for the same money, I can get superior performance, why not get the best available?

I agree. Local parts store claimed their computer did not show a filter for the hyperstrada in stock. Supposedly, I still had over 6,000 miles to go before the oil needed changed, but I wanted to change it because I suspect it had been over a year since the last change. So supposedly, the filter should still be "okay". And- it was over the weekend.

I may end up changing the oil and filter in another couple thousand; maybe before it gets in the 30's and 40's here. Alternatively, I may wait until early Spring. I haven't decided.

Why is it so difficult to find out which crush washer to buy for oil changes? I've searched this site and the web for good clear info on it and I can't seem to find it anywhere. Is M12 correct?

I may be missing something that was covered in a previous thread, but how are you guys reseting the service indicator and any error codes?
