    Oil change

    Well seeing as I was back from work early I decided to give the bike a fresh engine oil and filter change, I don't know if it's just me, but I had to remove the crash bar and remove the two screw on the underside of the fairings, plus the dome head bolt at the bottom right of the fairing to allow movement / clearance of the fairing, to remove and refit the filter.
    While that was draining out, it was quite dark too saying it was only suppose to of been changed in September,  I also drained off the oil from the rear hub, I was happy to find this was very clear / clean with no particles showing on the magnet.
    Having done that, I then replaced the sump plug, fitted a fresh filter, and it took exactly 4ltr's of oil, showing just below the top mark on the sight glass, then followed by a nice little 30 minute ride.
    One thing I did notice was, before I took it off the main stand, I did start it up and let it tick over for a few mins, right or wrong, I put it in 1st gear, I was slightly alarmed at the noise the shaft / bearing /crown wheel was making, but nothing when the weight was on it, maybe it was because it wasn't under any load / weight.
    Anyway, all seems to be good now.

    I got mine picked up and taken to the dealer as i thought the back end was going to explode with the noise and vibration when running on its centre stand.  The reason I was checking was a strange pulsing when taking off from a standstill .

    In fact it was the clutch causing the pulsing.

    I don't think you should run the motor in gear while the rear wheel is off the ground and with the traction control being active. It is completely unecessary (there is no chain to clean and lube). You could ruin your drive shaft, and probably confuse the electronics into oblivion as well.

    To change oil, I take off the left-side R&G bar, and remove the one screw from the fairing near the filter. With just that screw removed, there is enough give in the fairing to pull it out to make room for the filter egress/ingress. So far, I haven't cracked the fairing or messed up the paint.

    Pulling the fairing out how far to make sure you get something under the filter to keep the oil from running over everything???

    Everything will be a bit "clonky" if you run the bike in gear whilst it is on the centre stand. It is due to the necessary clearances required in the drivetrain components (primary drive, gearbox, shaft x2, rear bevel) and can sound quite alarming. so either don't do it, or ignore it as it is unimportant. Just ride the bike and you wont hear the noises

    If there's room to pull out the oil filter, there's room to put something under it to keep oil from dripping. I have found that draining the oil first and being quick about the actual oil filter removal results in very little oil spilled that's quite easy to clean up. YMMV.
