STEP #1 – Remove the seat & the left side fairings. See the Suzuki service manual. STEP #2 – Drill a 18mm hole into the panel (11/16″ hole saw recommended and is available on our site) where shown [A]. If the hole is too small for the socket open it with emery cloth or a file. Watch the clearance behind the panel; make sure the socket has room. Attach the socket to the panel; use a dab of Silicone on the socket and jam nut. Important: Do NOT use Loctite or over-tighten. STEP #3 – Install the cable starting at the battery through to the front of the bike. Route the cable under the bracket [B]. You’ll find it a bit tight to get through between the frame and motor [C]. Ty-wrap the cable to the frame. Run the cable up to the front fairing. Slip the fuse-holder in the location shown [D]. Disconnect the black and red battery terminals. Connect the ground wire to the bolt [E]. You can cut a notch in the ref boot [F]. Connect the red wire to the battery posts as follows: RED WIRE = BATTERY POSITIVE STEP #4 – Reconnect the positive & negative battery terminals. Install the fuse in the fuse-holder. The center terminal is plus and the outer ring is negative (see dwg below). Apply either dielectric grease or Vaseline to terminals. Connect the red wire to the POSITIVE terminal and the black wire to the NEGATIVE terminal. Use a voltmeter to check if the polarity is correct. STEP #5 – Apply the remaining ty-wrap to the wiring harness where needed. Do NOT allow the harness to directly contact the motor or exhaust.

1. Place the motorcycle on its centerstand. Do this on a hard surface so the motorcycle will not easily tip. Do not do this on gravel or dirt. 2. Remove the air dam/lower cowl to gain access to the oil filter housing. Using a 12mm 6-point socket, remove the original oil filter bolt and housing. The engine will lose approx. ½ quart of oil when changing the filter. 3. Clean the engine surface behind the oil filter housing where the o-ring will seat. Install the adapter plate with the new o-ring supplied onto the threaded boss protruding from the engine with 0-ring side facing the engine. 4. Screw the hollow stud with the jam nut into the engine where the original filter bolt went. Note that the end with the longer portion of threads goes into the engine. Screw the stud in until it is finger tight. Check to be sure the o-ring on the back of the filter plate is sill in its groove. Tighten the jam nut with a 12″ crescent wrench. Be careful your wrench does not slip and marr the surface of the filter plate. Use approx. 15 to 20 lbs of force at the end of the wrench to tighten the stud. 5. YAMAHA VENTURES ONLY : The frame brace needs to be raised slightly to give you more clearance for a filter wrench when changing your filter in the future. This brace between the right & left frame rails directly over the filter. Loosen the four (2 per side) 8mm bolts (12mm wrench size) that have the long acorn nuts. After loosening the four bolts, you will notice that there is approximately ¼” slack in these bolts. Lift the brace up as far as possible & retighten the bolts. 6. Coat the new filter gasket with oil. Spin the new filter onto the adapter plate until the gasket makes contact, and then tighten ¾ of one turn. This must be done each time you install a new filter. Use a filter wrench if necessary. Be sure your filter is tight! 7. Add ½ quart of oil or change the oil if you desire. Start the engine. Allow it to run for 30 seconds or more. Rev the engine to 4,000 rpm for 20-30 seconds. Shut the engine off & check thoroughly for any oil leaks.

Important: Do NOT use Loctite or over-tighten. STEP #3 – Disconnect the battery ground & positive connections. Install the fuse in the fuse-holder. Mount the fuse-holder to the round cross tube [B]. Route the harness up on the inside of the frame piggyback with the seat release cable. The harness can be inserted in the same clip that the seat- release cable uses [F]. Use wire ties to secure it from touching the engine. Connect the red wire to the positive battery posts [C]. The red rubber boot may need to be notched to allow the wire to exit. Connect the ground connection under bolt [D]. Run the black wire along the inside of the frame rail, then pass under the frame rail near the attachment point. STEP #4 -The center terminal is plus and the outer ring is negative (see dwg below). Apply either dielectric grease or Vaseline to terminals.
