Default Oil Change Parts

When doing an oil change it is recommended that you replace the oil pan washer that attaches to the bolt. Is this a simple washer that can be purchased at any Depot or Lowes or is it a Yamaha specific part that should be used.

Maybe a stupid question but I would rather be sure I am using the right part.

Thanks!

It is not Yamaha specific but needs to be the right size. It is more specifically a drain plug crush washer. Any Yamaha dealer should have the right size as one size is used among different models. Do not just use a washer that fits from a hardware store. They real thing is cheap enough.

Now, that being said many people never bother to put a new one on unless it is badly crushed from it being over tightened. Personally, I always changed it since I tend to get my filters at the dealer at a discount and they either throw it in for free or charge me a dollar for it.

Just hit up a cycle chop and ask for a crush washer. It'll be like $1-3. Believe it's 14mm ID. But just goto a metric cycle dealer/service center and they'll ask your bike anyway.

More importantly buy yourself a torque wrench. Will come in use for everything. :-) I don't know where you live but Harbor Freights around me carry them on sale for $9.99 from time to time, reg. $20.

I remember buying a pack of a buttload of them for (maybe 30 in a wad) like 10 bucks. I they were cheap enough that I never gave it a 2nd thought.

I use the Dorman 65310. Can get locally at O'reilleys, via Amazon etc. Should be like 3-4 bucks for a 3-pack of them...

I agree with the guys here, me personally I never reuse the old crush washer when I do my oil change the consequence of a leaking oil plug far outweigh the cost of a new crush washer. If your old crush washer leaks you have no alternative but to dump all the new oil just to replace that washer.

I've taken to carrying a spare crush washer in the watch pocket of my jeans, everywhere I go. That way I always have one handy plus, on long days, I reach in and pull it out and smile... knowing my bike is ready to take me to freedom.
