Height 6ft 4in Weight 95kg email@example.com An oil and filter change is such a simple task but a hugely satisfying one. I always try to purchase OE parts where I can and usually order a new sump plug bolt and washer too. For the small cost of a new bolt (£3.25 for the Blade) it’s not worth re-using the old one.
I couldn’t use my socket style filter remover on the Blade as the downpipes are too close to the end of the filter. After trying two different strap wrenches I finally managed to loosen it with a car type chain wrench. I used Castrol Power RS 10W-40 Motorcycle specific oil to refill. Job done.
