Ok, just did my first oil change on my stryker - man, that was MUCH easier than doing the job on my V Star. Word of advice - to those who don't have a lift or a stand....hope this isn't too technical for the layman. To level the bike while pulling the drain plug and allowing it to drain all out, an old dog house 2by4 and a broken brick are the perfect height under the kickstand for a stock setup.
Leave the bike on the kick stand to change oil. After it drains I stand the bike up straight for a min. to get all the rest. Oil changes are every 4000m, and filter every 8000m......................with syn. then 8000 for an oil change then.
