awesome DIY write up. just changed my oil today, my first time. It was very easy thanks to this thread. I went with 3qts of Rotella T6 5w40 (blue bottle) and a Purolator PureOne L4610 filter. reused my crush washer no leaks and rides pretty smooth again

Why? If you have the tool to get off the filter and it isn't overly tightened, you can do the whole oil change in about the amount of time it takes to unbolt the mid. I think there is ample room to remove and change the filter without taking anything off.

I still felt taking off the fairings was simple enough.

I don't like sticking my hand through the hole and blind fishing for the filter threads and I run my bike for a few seconds to warm oil to allow to get most of the oil out before draining and I touched knuckles on the headers a few times.

I personally feel it was easier for me to just take the extra 2 min to take the fairings off and have the open space and room to freely work in there and visually see everything was square and no look through the peep hole.

But like I said great wright up but I prefer to take the fairings off.

HONDA OEM Part # is 94109-12000 List price is like 47 cents.

Any Honda dealer will have one (I've been told Acura will as well?)

It's a lot easier than I thought it'd be. The less I have to take off my fairings, the less I scratch them up!

Do you guys accidentally get more oil on the pipes using this method rather than taking the fairing off?

first time I did this w/o taking the fairings off, Yes (due to taking the oil filter off and being less careful than I should have been)

after my first time, I'm more careful and its no problem


not to mention the oil burns off the headers real quick anyway

A few tips -

To prevent oil from splashing/dripping onto parts, I typically cover the lower part of the fairing/headers with aluminum foil - that way it helps to direct the oil if it does end up splashing anywhere, and keeps things tidy.

You can run the bike, but make sure you were gloves/hand protection to avoid being burned.

Crush washer should come with the oil filter if you are buying it at the shop.

Cup-style wrench can be purchased for cheap at your local Honda car dealership - it's the one used for the common filter on Accords, Civics, Pilots, etc. - just not for the S2000 (that one is bigger).

I don't have the 600rr any more, but I recently did the oil change on my Triumph Daytona 675 and the filter location is nowhere as convenient as it was on the RR's - I had to use a pretty long extension to get to it, so definitely take advantage if you can!

Yeah, I agree to put something below the filter and above the pipes to catch oil. Not a huge deal, but you will otherwise make a mess and some smoke.

Gotta let you guys who are having a tough time with the oil filters in on a tip.
There is no need to use a screwdriver and hammer or a channel lock wrench to get the filter loose and then bitch about it. It was torqued to spec at the factory and was meant to be removed with the correct wrench.

The factory service manual for our bikes lists the correct wrench to use under pt# 07AAA-PLCA100. (Heavy duty OEM Honda oil filter wrench)





This tool makes getting the filter off very easy and you can easily torque it to spec again.
Then easily remove it when it's due for another change.

Do not mistake this wrench with cheap units sold at most stores including Cyclegear.
This is made of thicker material so it doesn't flex and slip like the cheap ones.

Thanks Luwin1026, for the excellent write-up! After reading this I'll definitely go the KN oil filter route for any future oil changes.

Kevlar49, I'm looking into getting one of these (the one with the nipple, F-109N). Did you have any clearance issues (did you need to use an extender and/or did you have problems putting this valve on)? Was the included washer enough to make a tight seal?

I've converted from using the oil filter tool to a screwdriver! Not enough room with the arrow headers. The screwdriver method works fine but you do end up with a bit more oil on the headers. It burns all off if you run the bike for a couple minutes.

Great write up! I did my oil change over the weekend with the instructions here with Motul 7100 oil and K&N oil filter.

One question I have is since I installed the oil filter without removing the fairings, I used a wrench to install it, I am not sure if I over-tightened it. Is it ok for me to loosen the oil filter a little bit after I have all the new engine oil in there already?

Take your lower fairing off to get more access to the oil filter
