Finally got around to doing the oil change, have about 4,168 or something on it. There was a tiny bit of metal on the tip of the drain plug, no biggie. Everything went great but ****, the oil just kept on coming lol.
I got the engine hot, pulled the drain plug, then when it was barely a drip, I tapped the starter a few times and it started streaming out again. I was able to do this about 3 times before finally no more oil was left in the oil pump.
Result, **** thing took just a bit more than 3.5 quarts when all said and done! Doing the filter was a piece of cake. I used a new crush washer on the drain plug but didn't bother replacing the o-rings on the oil filter cover, they seemed totally fine. Hopefully I didn't over tighten the drain plug, seems really easy to do.
I took the opportunity to replace a plastic washer on one of the fairing bolts that has been missing since new so that's good. But then of course something had to go wrong. The bottom rear left side fairing bolt only went in about 2/3 then wouldn't go any further, and it was not caught on anything. I took it out and tried like 3 times, no dice. Think I need to order a new metal clip for it, had it off 4 times now, weird. Bolt came out just fine.
After running the bike a couple times I ended up filling it until it was just below the middle of the sight glass. I feel good that I finally have Redline in it now, of course the Motul 300V that came out still looked great.
I'll be letting the dealer do the next oil change at 7,500 although I'll provide the oil. I want the piece of mind they check everything out including my tiny oil leak. I think there is a software update too since I bought in January and I also heard there is an official fix for the emissions canister/hot start issue.
