kawasaki ZX636 05-06 motorcycle OIL CHANGE
Made the vid as short as possible with the aim to guide you through an oil change. I have typed out a step by step guide below if that helps. It is quite simple and the video is short so you can stream it to your phone/tablet with out problems.
bucket- collect old oil
filter – new clean filter
funnel – help pour new oil into the engine
semi synthetic oil 10W-40
filter remover – i used an old fashioned fabric strap attached to a bolt, i cover the fabric strap on to the filter and turn the bolt with a wrench to loosen it. ( i suggest your use a new style filter remover, it is much easier.
Allen key – to remove fairing panels
17mm socket wrench – to remove oil drain plug
new oil drain plug WASHER – throw old one away
torch – to see in dark areas
block of wood – to place under the kickstand, this balances the bike up and helps the oil drain out easily.
heat engine oil 100 degrees approx
remove lower fairing
locate filter and drain plus
prop bike on some wood to help the oil drain
unscrew oil drain plug keeping a bucket underneath, oil may be hot.
once bolt/plug is taken off, replace old washer with a new one.
pour some new oil in the engine, use funnel if you want.
once you begin to see new oil pour out into the bucket, this means the the old oil is completely out
remove filter, keep a bucket under the filter as it will leak
clean up the connection where the filter attaches
rub some new oil around the rubber gasket on filter and in the center
attach the filter, pretty tight, but not tooooo much.
wipe the old drain plug/bolt and attach it back along with the new washer
add oil, keep the oil level between the two markings
start engine and check oil level again and it should rise a little
dispose of old oil
