To change the oil with the filter you need 2 qts. of oil and of course the filter. Drain the oil out of the case and the oil tank. Put .4 qts in the case and put the rest which is 1.6 qts. in the oil tank by the radiator. I would look on ebay and get a manual, they go for pretty cheap.

1.6 quarts in the tank & .4 quarts in the case. Pretty straight forward, drain. Fill lol .. To tighten the chain you gotta loosen the two bolts that are on each side of the swingarm. Go take a good look at it, most of its just commen sense.

The manual for my '04 says 1.96 quarts. But that's close enough to 2 for me, I usually spill .04 of a quart anyway. :mhihi:[/b]

it says in mine that theres 1.55 qt in ressy and .3qt in the motor. Must be a canadian lol, always gotta be different.

when you do your regular oil checks or changes, make sure the engine is ran for a little bit to circulate the oil through the system and level out. If it sits for a few days, the oil slowly drains into the case and will give you a false reading.
