Default How to change your 954/929 Oil

By request of davpan12, here is a quick how to. I don't currently have my engine in the frame and fairings on. Pretty much self-explanatory.

1. Remove right side lower fairing. No pics of this process. Its too easy.


2. Locate oil drain plug circled in red, remove and drain oil. After oil has finished draining re-install drain plug.


3. Locate oil filter, in the front of the engine behind the headers (headers DO NOT NEED TO BE REMOVED, mine are). Remove filter and drain oil.


4. With filter is 3.9 Quarts of oil. Put a small amount of oil in filter and install.

5. Fill oil with whats left of the 3.9 quarts of oil.

6. Re-install fairing.

7. Done.

a little tip when removing the filter, I lay a little peice of cardboard on top of the header under the filter. that way i dont have to smell the spilled oil.

If you do spill oil on your headers,I would use brake cleaner to remove it.

Do you all torque down your oil filter to 20 lb-ft or just hand tight? It's really hard to get a tool in there with the headers on, and I would probably have to buy one if I wanted it to fit on my torque wrench 3/8" drive. I did mine today and just did hand-tight like other bikes I've had. But the service manual calls out 20 lb-ft which sounds like significantly more than hand tight.

All my filters (bike, car, truck) are hand tightened. I hate trying to get a filter off that a service center torqued down. No leaks yet.

Yeah. I only had a little leak once on my Multistrada 620. I noticed a spot of oil under the bike and gave the filter another good twist. Then it was good until I changed it about 2000 miles later. On a bike with a lower fairing though, you might not notice for a while, which could be bad.
I'd hate to have to buy a tool though just for the oil filter on this particular bike. And yes it did take a pipe wrench to get the old filter off. I was afraid I would tear through the filter before it loosened.
Good writeup! Do you also put old oil around the seal of the new oil filter before putting it on? That's what I have been told to do.

You should always put old oil around the seal of the new oil filter if its for a bike and even a car. It allows you to take it off easier and to put it in easier. Always put oil on it and make it a good habit
