Changing the oil in your FZ-09

Not my video. Just found it on YouTube.


You obviously need engine oil, new filter, funnel, drain pan, and tools.

I know that all the manufacturers recommend that everytime you change oil, you should put a new "crush" washer on, and in my opinion, they are just selling parts. I've changed my own oil on every bike I've owned (26 and counting) and I've NEVER ONCE bought a new crush washer for the oil drain plug.......and.........never once had one leak. YMMV, but that is my experience of 42 years of riding.

I have only changed it once and it was a bitch getting the old one off of the plug. I just wipe up all the oil that is on the plug and on the pan, hand tighten and then give a bit of a twist with the wrench. BTW, I don't think the washer is replaced when you get the oil changed in the car.

from when I used to do oil changes back in college... no the washer isn't replaced on cars.

I knew it! All my previous newer Yami's had a 17mm. Glad I bought the Craftsman 17mm combo wrench.

43K mile son the FZ6R and still the same washer. As long as it stays on the same side... should still seal. Worst it will drip a bit. Then I will change it.
