So let me completely understand - you guys are NOT removing the headers to get at the oil filter and drain plug as outlined in the owners manual. Please describe how you accomplish this - I'd be very interested. Thanks

An easy 30 minutes, max! No you don't need to remove headers or anything besides the filter itself. I had a filter "wrench/socket" that fit a Suzuki and it is a perfect fit. Nothing blocking the drain plug either.

No...use a SMALL strap wrench:



It'll go around the filter, and you'll be able to take it off without taking off the headers. Also, refer to this thread:

http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=2566

MAKE SURE YOU REUSE THE PLASTIC RING! If you don't, your filter will back out and unscrew...then you're screwed.

If I want to go out and ride, and the motor is cool, I can change my oil in under 10 minutes...but typically, it'll take you around 15-20 minutes. If you lockwire like fazer6, add in a little more time, but that lockwire serves the same purpose as the plastic ring that's on the filter...



That's a pic I snagged off eBay...you DON'T need that oil filter tool. And that thing around the filter is what I'm talking about...you've seen enough of the oil threads, you should know what I'm talking about anyways...just making it clear for everybody else who isn't a "regular"...
