run bike to operating temperature, let cool down enough to wrench...
step one: remove lower(s)
step two: remove oil drain bolt (17mm) located under the motor...
step three: remove old oil filter (located behind your shifter/clutch side lower/mid fairing) when you are removing this, some will use oil filter wrenches/etc....this one is coming off, so i just grab it with some channel locks and turn it.
step four: after oil is completely drained (will take 10-12 minutes) take your new oil filter, place some oil on the rubber seal on the new oil filter- screw it on hand tight...or if you have girl hands refer to your owner's manual for the correct torque setting.
step five: replace oil drain bolt- refer to torque settings in OM
step six: remove oil cap- add oil ( that amount will vary between models and if you are replacing your oil filter or not)
step seven: replace oil cap, start your machine, check oil level.
step eight: drink a beer

Youtube is your friend, look up maint. and mod videos of your bike- you will be amazed at the information people have up there.
"ziptie tire change" has to be on of my favorites

All our guys and most our customers do their own oi changes.
Take your time, get the hang of it and should be no problem.
