This is my
bike FZ. He is 4 years old. Once in a week I do a water service by myself and I
clean the chain with help of cloth and brush to remove sludge particles from
the rings and roller bearings, and moreover, I wash the chain with water, later
I apply the grease or chain spray on it. I would like to share my experience
with changing the Engine oil for my vehicle.

Step-1: Before removing the oil, place an oil drain pan beneath the oil
drain cap to avoid oil spillage.
Step-2: Next open the engine oil drain bolt with help of spanner. Once you
removed the bolt, allow the engine oil to flows out freely.
Step-3: Next Release the engine oil filter cap with help of a
wrench. And remove the oil filter.
Step-4: Next clean the bore with dry cloth piece, insert the new oil filter
and close the oil filter cap.
Step-5: Before filling the new engine oil, make sure that older engine oil
will completely be drained out or not. It takes some time to drain out.
Step-6: By using the funnel, fill the new lubricant oil through the filler
hole. Make sure that follow the owner’s manual to fill the suggested amount of oil
in oil filler hole. After completion of oil filling, close the cap, start the
engine and keep it in idle position for 2-3 min.
