    Thank you, I'll be lucky, I have no doubt. But it seems to me that something has happened to you regarding R&G.

    By forum rules, I am not going to go into this matter anymore, so for me it is totally settled.
    Only motorcyclists know why dogs stick their head out the car window.

    Maybe it would help to have a different thread debating what filter to use and leave this one as a changing the oil thread?

    I know there was/is one that lists cross references for different ones that fit.

    rpeters549 - Awesome tutorial!  As a brand new TTSE owner who likes to do the basic maintenance himself this is just what I was looking for!  Ordering parts now as I don't have any idea when the oil was last changed in the bike.  The person I bought it from only put a few hundred miles on it in the short time he owned it.

    Glad it was helpful! I have found that many people can do more than they thought with a good set of instructions. I once totally rebuilt a Ford T-5 manual transmission using a VHS video doing a lot of pausing.
    Because it's pretty easy, and because the oil in a bike has to do so much (motor and trans) I change mine every 5k. Locally Mobile-1 and Valvoline oil is about $10-12 a quart and oil filter about the same. $55 or so every 7-9 months isn't bad in the big picture.

    Bonus point for anyone that writes the installation date/mileage  on the end of their new filter with a paint pen  :047:

    I just keep a 3x5 recipe card in the glove box and log all my maintenance there.  Quick and easy.
    Besides, I do the oil every 5k so just a quick glance at the ODO each start up.  Multiple of 5k means it's time.
