First oil change

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.

Hope that helps. :)

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.

Funny..............mine said OK to use after 600 mile change. Go figure! Still going strong.
