Z800 engine burp

Hi Guys, eveytime i perform an engine oil, the oil light takes long to switch off. I have to burp the oil filter every time i replace the engine oil. Is this a normal with kawasakis? Thx

doing an oil/filter change I suggest to prime the oil filter...fill it on the bench slowly, carefully ....let it sit a couple minutes ...it'll suck the first fill of oil right into the media....repeat until the filter is nearly full. You'd be surprised how much it needs. THEN install onto engine, may be messy but I think will alleviate the need to burp AND I predict the oil light will go off sooner at startup following a change.

Try this method, it works, all my bikes and cars/SUV's
