    I would like to change my engine oil and filter while there is snow on the ground. How many quarts does the trophy hold? What is the best oil for these bikes? And the best filter?

    4.23 quarts.  Not the easiest thing to check it in the little window since the bike should be level.  When it's on the center stand it doesn't sit level.  Mid level in the sight glass or a little above would be good as far as I'm concerned.  I try to make sure it isn't way low in the sight glass and my 2013 uses no oil visibly between maintenance.

    According to the Owners Handbook :

    Oil Specification :

    Semi or fully synthetic 10W/40 or 10W/50 motorcycle engine oil
    which meets specification API SH (or higher) and JASO MA,
    such as Castrol Power 1 Racing 4T 10W-40 (fully synthetic) engine oil,
    sold as Castrol Power RS Racing 4T 10W-40 (fully synthetic) in some countries.

    Oil Filter : Triumph Part Number T1218001

    Other Oil Filters can be found, but I've never really
    seen the need to use anything other than the Triumph one.  :027:

    Cheers  :821:

    Member Saddle Tramp has some past experience with lab testing of motor oils and recommends using Motul, which is what I use as well, and I use a K&N filter for the ease of removal.  Any good brand filter should work, but there are lots of preferences on those as well as oil.  A discussion of either of those items will go on forever, and has, on all the motorcycle forums I've been a member of.

    102,000+ miles

    Used Castrol Full Syn as specified
    Fram PH6017A always. ( these fit many of the bikes I've owned, easy to find anywhere... in US anyway ).

    All other machines used Valvoline dino or lately full syn. motorcycle-specific oil.

    No oil-related problems on any bike ever in decades.

    That says a lot about regular maintenance and the quality of products available today. :028:

    Maxum4 ProPlus 10W50 and K&N 204 filter (both can be found at Walmart and Amazon) for me since buying mine nearly 5 years ago. Wow, where does the time go?!?!
    A 2x4 under the side stand helps me tip the bike just far enough to the right to level it and get a good reading in the sight glass.
