    DIY Oil & Filter Change

    Good morning wonderful people:
    I've newly acquired a 2014 TTSE and want to do an oil and filter change but can't find a service manual, so forgive the dumb ass question but can you change the filter without removing any pannels/fairings etc. as it seems to be tucked away behind then or is there just enough wriggle-room to get it out.
    Cheers guys.

    Yes, Big Chris you can.  You will need to remove some fasteners to allow the plastic to give enough to get the filter out, but total removal is not required.  I think I remove 4 or 5 fasteners? Anyway, pretty easily done.  :821:

    I took a look at the service manual and they do not mention removal of panels, I just changed mine but I was doing work and had the side panel off anyway. The worst part was the last time it was serviced the shop must have cranked the filter on with some force I ended up using a flat head screwdriver driven through the sides to get the filter to start to turn. Below is the wording in the manual.
    1. Warm up the engine thoroughly, and then stop the
    engine and secure the motorcycle in an upright
    position on level ground.
    2. Place an oil pan beneath the engine.
    3. Remove the oil drain plug.
    4. Unscrew and remove the oil filter using Triumph
    service tool T3880313.
    5. Dispose of the old oil filter in an environmentally
    friendly way.
    6. Pre-fill a new oil filter with clean engine oil.
    7. Apply a smear of clean engine oil to the sealing ring
    of the new oil filter.
    8. Fit the oil filter and tighten to 10 Nm.
    9. After the oil has completely drained out, fit a new
    sealing washer to the drain plug. Fit and tighten the
    plug to 25 Nm.
    10. Fill the engine with new oil of the type and grade
    listed previously and in the specification section.
    11. Start the engine and allow to idle.
    12. Ensure that the oil pressure warning light
    extinguishes shortly after starting and the ‘oil Lo' or
    'oil Pr' is not visible in the instrument's display screen.
    13. Stop the engine and check the oil level. Adiust if
    necessary.

    I just remove the one fairing bolt located below the filter, plenty of room for removal & re fitting

    That's the only bolt I remove too.

    I use the K&N (PN# KN204) oil filters for my bikes, including the Trophy.   

    With their 17mm nut on the end of the filter, I can change the filter on my Trophy without loosening, or removing any bodywork.
