You're not gonna change the filter first, then change the oil, are you? You should do them at the same time. First warm the bike up so the oil drains easier, then unscrew the oil drain plug and let the bike sit for about twenty minutes. Drink a few beers or smoke some cigarettes. That's what I do:D

After all the oil is out, THEN unscrew the oil filter and replace it. Then you can put the drain plug back in, fill her up and fire it up and make sure the oil pressure light goes off. If you don't take off your fairing, it will be very difficult to take the oil filter off, and you will make a hell of a mess, whether you use a rag or not. Jeez, doesn't anyone have any patience nowadays? By the way, a fully synthetic oil is better than a blend.

Just a note about Sunoco Ultra94..
I Love sunoco, the 94 octane is great, but I've been told by a few people now that it has a higher alcohol (I Think its Methanol, but dont quote me on that) content then most gas, which our high revving engines don't like as much.
I always use Sunoco92 in the bike, and my Transam always got the 94.

So I woke up today it to my surprise it was nice and sunny out. I ate some breakfast and headed out to finally give my new prize a new cleaning. I got the bike sat. and the previous owner said he never washed it or waxed it!! So I cleaned it all up and headed off to go for a ride. After about 30 miles I started going up a slight hill and noticed I was rapidly slowing down. I pulled off to the side and let the cars past. I was starting to get mad cuz I didn't understand what had just happened!! Cars were looking at so I just acted like I was waiting for the rest of the group!!:DSo after about 2.2 seconds of thinkin I realized I ran out of gas!!! I switched it to reserve and headed to the Sunoco for some 94 octane!!!:D:D

P.S. Got a price on oil filter and oil. These sound about right??

K&N oil filter $14.95
Oil $ 5.95 qt (forget the brand but the guy said to get it, it's like half synthetic)
Do these sound ok???

I got my hand on the filter today so I think I'm going to just put a rag under the filter and take it off instead of taking off fairing!!

the price for the oil filter is way to high. take the oil filter part number and have your local auto part store order it for you. buy them in bulk. i got three of them for $12.
