Ummm... I dropped the bolt in the oil so uhh, It would be well lubricated... Ya I'm going with that - Says so right on the missing page they didn't put in the manual " submerge drain bolt in Oil before reinstalling..I was the perfect oil change video up to 5:42 and then all **** broke loose, first the bolt in the oil then the hand, oh the humanity.:biggrin:
Excuse me... Your just saying all that, because what you've stated above is actually good advice... Wait I thought I showed putting some oil on the filter O-ring before installing.Nice video! Word of advice for new people changing their oil.. PLEASE don't over tighten the oil filter. There is a little pictograph on the side of the filter. Correct tightness is 3/4 turns after the gasket touches the mounting surface. Basically I hand tighten it snug and I've never had an issue. Also always put some oil on the gasket before installing the filter.
OH, and the nut on a K&N filter is for REMOVING only. It isn't for installing or torquing! :wink:
You got a good price on the oil change kit. When I did mine I couldn't find the Kawi kit for less than $52 (synthetic)....The Kawasaki Oil, Filter & Aluminum washer cost $32.00 total - $8.00 bucks more if you go full synthetic oil.
