Servicing: oil changes etc!!

so by trade, i own an auto repair shop, have a lot of experience with wrenching on cars and also motorcycles. i don't trust others to wrench on my own stuff and definitely prefer doing myself (even if it's under warranty), plus the nearest dealership is an absolute pain to get to with all the traffic i have to endure.

i've searched online & checked the usual sites (bikebandit, revzilla, most of popular US sites) for OE filters & fluids and can't seem to find a place that supplies it, can someone link me to a site where i can purchase these parts (without having to order from over seas)?

how is resetting the maintenance reminder done? hopefully this is done without the use of a factory scan tool (almost most cars i work on is usually a combination of button presses that resets the maintenance minder)

now in terms of diagnostics, how are trouble codes pulled from the computer? is there any software that i can download (and/or purchase) so i can do diagnostics on my own? i remember with my previous triumph, there was some freesoftware where tuning can be done, code pulling etc.

what weight/brand oil are you DIY guys using?

i haven't checked the service manual yet as it's currently downloading so i apologize if these answers are in the manual.

just breezed through the manual and did in fact find the service reset function.

Press the "SET" and "OK" buttons at the same time
for more than ten seconds to access the "DEALER
MENU".

Press the "OK " button for less than three seconds
until the message "SERVICE" is displayed. The
mileage range with respect to expiration of the next
scheduled maintenance is shown on this screen.

Mileage range resetting: After performing scheduled
maintenance, the mileage range must be reset using
the following procedure.
- Access "SERVICE" mode and press the "OK" button
for less than three seconds until the message
"RESET KM" appears and the mileage range indicator
light will begin to flash.

Press the "OK " button for more than three seconds
and the mileage range will be reset. The mileage
range with respect to expiration of the next scheduled
maintenance is shown on this screen.
- The next press of the "SET" button for less than three
seconds will allow the user to return to the dashboard
start screen.

As for parts supply....there are several US dealers who do on-line parts orders. At least one is a sponsor on this site!

The Bike Bandit/Revzilla guys don't have MV parts because they aren't dealers. Both of those sites (and all the others like them) are actually fronts for multi-line OEM dealers.


I use the recommended oil: AGIP (was...now ENI) 10 w 60.
As for oil preferences, like certain anatomical features, everyone has their own!!!

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Ah...that weird spec again. I have no clue about the kg measurement of oil. My 910R takes a bit less than 4 qts with filter.

Try starting with 3 quarts. Check site glass. Add more if needed....run engine for a bit (30 seconds?) allow to sit for a minute or so and check level again. Top up as needed.

Don't over fill !!

Make a note for future reference.

A simple google search provider me with

http://metric-calculator.com/converter_qt_to_kg.htm

2.5kg = 2.5 litre = 2.6417 quarts

This seems really low to me. What does everyone else think? If memory serves me correct my VFR used 3.7 liters.

2.5 ltr is correct, even after draining the oil cooler, do not overfill.

That conversion only serves true with water at 4°C

Surely oil is heavier than water per unit volume...

I don't have a 3 cylinder....guess they hold less than the older 4 cylinder bikes.
