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.

1. Before starting make sure you have all the components in the exploded view below. The oil filter guard does not replace the stock oil filter cover but reinforces it with a heavy duty guard. 2. Clean the area around the oil filter housing of any dirt, mud, or grease. 3. Remove the three screws that hold the oil filter cover. 4. Remove the oil filter cover being careful not to loose the cover O-ring and the filter retaining spring. 5. Place the star lock washers over the three screws provided with your new guard. 6. Insert the screws into the mounting holes in the guard. 7. Place the stock oil filter cover over the three screws protruding from the guard. 8. Place the oil filter cover O-ring in the O-ring groove in the stock cover. 9. Place the spring over the boss on the inside of the oil filter cover. 10. Position the entire assembly on the engine and hand tighten the three screws. Be very careful not to loose the O-ring or spring. 11. Check to make sure the O-ring did not get pinched. 12. Tighten the three screws a little at a time with a final torque of 4 ft-lbs (48 in-lb) or 5.5 N-m or 0.55 kg-m. Be careful not to over tighten the screws. Also before inserting screws make sure the threaded holes are free of dirt and grit. Dirt and grit mixed with oil will soon wear away the soft aluminum and cause the threads to fail. DO NOT eliminate the lock washers. The lock washers are there to help prevent the screws from loosening due to engine vibration 13. Getting all the pieces to mount up can be a challenge but with a little practice you should become an expert. If a permanent installation is desired the oil filter cover can be glued to the guard with RTV to aid in installation and give you one less thing to hold together. My best advice is don’t hurry and be thorough. The most costly mistakes are made when you are in a hurry and are not thinking. It might be a good idea just to practice taking the oil filter cover off and putting it back on again so you know how everything fits with the filter, O-rings, and screws. 14. Start the engine and look for leaks or other problems. It is a good idea to inspect your bike before each ride and check your oil level and look for loose bolts or other damage.
