oil filter removal
« on: March 15, 2015, 12:00:25 am »
Thinking about an oil change

Had a quick cursory look underneath and can't obviously see oil filter

Is it necessary to remove fairings to change the filter?

Does anyone have any pics of a filter change that would help me?

It only requires to remove one bolt to open up the fairing enough for the oil filter change. IIRC, it is on the left side of the engine, down low.

If you have the crash bars installed you will also have to remove the parts that are in the way. But even then, it's still a fairly easy job.

To remove the stock oil filter, a Triumph tool number T3880313 might be helpful. But you can replace the stock filter with a  K & N oil filter (use KN-204) that has a 17 MM (or 11/16") nut to use for easy removal, so a Triumph tool will no longer be needed.

You might want to try a strap wrench or whatever to remove old filter if you're going to change over to K & N. But if you want to stick with Triumph oil filters, get the T3880313 tool.

 I got mine off without removing any fairing bolts... it will make a mess when you tilt it up, so something to keep oil off of the inside of the fairing there is nice (form a funnel, aluminum foil, lots of rags, punch a hole in the filter and drain it first, whatever).

does part of the fairing need to come off to remove the oil filter? If so any advice would be appreciated please!

I didn't have the Triumph tool so very very carefully removed the filter with a set of channel lock pliers.  K&N went back on.  I already have too many filter wrenches...seems like this is something that could be standardized  :083:, but now I'm straying....
