I'm not having a problem viewing the pictures. I will say this, the pictures are excellent ..very clear

There used to be a scientific consensus that the earth was flat.In the past, many scientists, including Darwin believed that blacks were inferior to whites. Back in the 1970's scientists were getting us ready for the next ice age.Al Gore told us in 2009 that most all of the ice would be gone from the polar ice caps by 2014. Science is an integral and important part of all our lives. So is a healthy skepticism about most things, including scientific consensus.

So when checking the oil do you just have it vertical (someone balancing it) or on the center stand?

Plenty of threads on this. Why not read your manual to see what Suzuki says?

I just did my oil and filter change, although only at 2760 miles I bought it second hand from a dealer and felt I wanted to make sure it was done. So I removed the drain bolt and let the rather black oil pour out into the oil pan and then removed the filter cover and removed the filter, I cleaned up both rubber washers and checked them for damage and they are both in fine condition so used them again. I replaced the old filter with a new K&N 131 filter and replaced the crush washer on the drain bolt once I had clean up the magnet, used my torque wrench to tighten it to 23nm and then the oil filter bolts to 10nm. I proceeded to pour in some Castrol Power 1 4T 10W-40 until I hit the Full level and then started the bike up for a short while and topped up the oil some more and then ran it for a few minutes and turned it off and the oil level is bang on or a tiny bit above full, have to say it takes more oil it seems than stated.

Overall it seemed fairly easy and I suspect I'll probably aim to do it again about 7500 miles and probably go fully synthetic at that point as well. In a few days time I'll use the same oil on the final drive.

I keep reading complaints that o rings don't come with filters. Is this so?

They didn't with the K&N one I bought but I had ordered some any way, should the one on there be damaged and need replacing which it didn't.
