Ok as previously promised I will try and show how easy it is to change the oil on the 650 with the aid of some pics in my allwalk photo gallery. The oil change pics can be found on page 2 http://burgmanusa.com/gallery/allwalk/album24/
Some of the pics have text added to hopefull aid in the operation. The following pic in the series is the same pic without the text.To enlarge the pic click on the thumbnail and if you need it larger again left click on that picture and it should show an even larger zoomed in pic for better clarity. Ok here goes.
Engine oil change: put bike on center stand and warm engine at idle for 3 minutes
1-For me the oil change starts with the removal of the center hump panel. Fairly easy with one screw to remove. So basic no pic supplied.
2- Now I take of the lower left leg shield or body panel. Refer to pics 1.1 and 1 for the fastners that need to be removed. Now dont forget that there is 1 screw ( not shown in photos) accessible from the front rad area, very noticeable. Pic 2.1 shows the location of the 2 fastners on the underside of the panel. Don't forget these
3- Remove engine oil filler plug (pic 3.1)
4-Place an oil pan below the engine and remove the engine oil drain plug (pic 3.1)
5- After oil is completely drained , replace drain plug and tourque to
oil drain plug:23N-m (2.3 kgf-m, 16.5 lb-ft)
6- Refill engine oil through the filler hole using an API classification of SF or SG oil with SAE 10W-40 viscosity
keeping an eye on the oil level sight glass.
Start the engine and allow to run for 3 mins at idling speed.
Turn off the engine and wait about 3 mins,then check the oil level through the inspection window. If the level is below the mark L
,add oil to the F
level.If the oil is above the F
mark ,drain oil to the F mark level
IT SHOULD BE DECIDED IF YOU ARE GOING TO CHANGE THE OIL FILTER BEFORE YOU ADD THE OIL TO THE ENGINE AND DO SO IF REQUIRED
Engine oil capacity
Oil change: 2.6L (2.7/2.3 US/Imp qt)
Filter change: 2.9L (3.1/2.6 US/Imp qt)
Overhaul engine: 3.4L (3.6/3.0 US/Imp qt)
1- Place the oil pan below the transmission case and remove the oil drain plug(pic 3.1) and the filler plug (pic 4.1)
2-Remove the oil level plug (pic 4.1)
3-Retighten the drain plug to 12N-m (1.2 kgf-m, 8.5 lb-ft)
4-Refill through the filler hole using SAE 10W-40 with API SF or SG
5-Fill untill you start to see the oil drain from the oil level plug hole.
6- Replace filler plug and level plug to the same tourque specs as the drain plug.
NECESSARY AMOUNT OF TRANSMISSION OIL
OIL CHANGE: 360ML (12.2/12.7 U.S/IMP OZ)
OVERHAUL : 400ML (13.5/14.1 U.S/IMP OZ)
Hope this helps those at home mechanics and I will try to follow up with a report and pics on the Final Gear Oil change.
