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. :)

Mine told me to use a semisynthetic blend during mile 600 mile maintenance then switch over to full syn at 4k.they also gave me the ring speech as the reason not to go to full syn right off the bat.
