Newbie quetion...

What's up guys and gals. I'm about to get an '04 ZX10 in a few days (selling my '01 YXF600R at the dealer on consignment) and I wanted to know what type of engine oil are you guys using and how easy is it to change the oil on this bike? I did all the oil changes on my YZF600 and it was fairly easy (didn't even have to remove the fairing). Is there a thread on this site that covers bike maintenance and ect? Thanks for the info.

Help is available...

I posted this a while ago:

quote:
"Messy job, even with tinfoil on the headers, since the heat exchanger is in the way of doing a good job, and so some drips on the collector.

The filter has to come out between the headers, since there is a coolant hose and hanger in the way of taking it off the port side. I used a cap wrench and a 9" 3/8 extension and ratchet, no problems. Oil drain plug is 17mm. Use a funnel to refill the oil and pour slower, the clutch drum is *right* behind the filler cap."


and read this thread: here
