Remove the bike off the stand and enjoy your ride.
Today Im going to show you how to properly change the oil on your motorcycle. For this instructable, we are going to use my 2011 Yamaha FZ8. Please consult your owner's manual for proper oil change and filter schedule.
Here we have a photo of materials needed for our oil change. One very important piece of equipment is a rear paddock stand. These can be had fairly cheap at a local motorcycle accessory store. I picked mine up for about $40. If your bike comes equipped with a center stand then you wont be needing the rear paddock stand. I also decided to use full synthetic oil for this instructable since it is a bit better than your regular motor oil.
