The filter is exactly like a car's, though you may need a smaller filter wrench to remove the old one. Just follow the maintenance schedule in the owner's manual (if you have one) and you'll be fine.

Hey guys,
I was just curios as to just how often I should do what to my motorcycle to keep it in top shape. I know that ill probably be changing the oil aobut ever 3000 miles. Also in my manual it doesnt say how to remove the oil filter. Is there a trick to this or is it pretty much like a car? And besides keeping the chain lubed and clean what else should I do/keep an eye on so that my bike stays in good shape?

Thanks in Advance
Mr. Speed

Changing the filter is the same as a car. You will have to take all the hexhead screws out of the fairing on the left side except the one up by the head light area. Their are 4 plastic rivets you will have to remove. Take an allen wrench and push on the middle part of the rivet and it will pop in so you can remove it. Then you can spread the fairings apart enough to get your oil filter off. That is the way I did it anyway.
