you don't have to take the fairing off if you're careful and have a little funnel. But taking it off takes all of five minutes and makes everything easier.

It's probably best that you take off your fairings otherwise you'll have a nice mess on your hands. Nothing worse than oil settling in your fairing lowers then making its way out and onto the road for your rear wheel to run over! As for the crush ring, that's there for a reason, just be sure not to over-tighten it. Also, unless you're taking off the heat-exchanger that the oil filter is attached to, you'll need less than 4 quarts, so mind the oil glass! Put in the first three quarts without worry, when you get to #4, only use about half of it, let the bike set for five minutes and check the oil glass - add according.

Have a nice day:)

Chaos, panic, disorder......

Take the time to get the fairing off, or if your like me your be taking the time to clean up the oil on the bike and off the floor (I kicked the drain tub).

I think it's easier to take the fairing off then to try and change the oil+filter with the fairings on. And Strong Bad has a good point about getting oil on the rear tire.
