Thanks for posting
That nicely adds to the knowledge base on this forum

I wonder what the tightening sequence is for the sump bolts??????

Never "key the bike on" when doing an oil change.
If one moves away from the job for a while and the starter is pressed by an unsuspecting person.
Then damage may happen to the machine or a person in the vicinity.

A hot tip is to never ever leave the key in the ignition when doing an oil change or pretty much anything else on a machine. Unless it's necessary to power the machine up for some reason.
Always remove the key.
There is no purpose in turning the ignition on unless you are doing something that requires power from the ignition.


Yes by all means if it pleases you, put the bike into top gear and rotate the rear wheel in the forward direction(only) for a few revolutions.
Just until the oil flow starts to diminish, and you can hear a slurping/sucking sound in the sump. Then stop turning the rear wheel.
When one does this step, it evacuates the scavenging pump.
There will be about another 150 ml of oil that runs out of the sump as a result.

Also don't put the full 3.7 litres in as the engine will end up being a long way overfull.
Start off with 3.5 litres.
Then top off the oil level as required after the bike has been test ridden, and totally cooled off some hours later.
I recommend checking the oil level "strictly in accordance with the owners manual" the next day after the test ride.
If you start with 3.5 litres of oil it won't be too low, and it's easier to add a little later than to have to remove any at all.

I would presume this is included in the 15K miles service? Can anyone confirm this?

Yes.
It's standard procedure at every major, and it's a requirement.

It's actually fine to briefly crank an engine with no oil in it. We have engine customers that have minimum "run time with no oil" tests. This is to ensure that if you are on some crazy tilt angle such that oil can't get to components, the components will be unharmed for that given period of time. Usually the time requirement is about 30 seconds for unfired and less for fired. The residual oil film on the parts protects them adequately as long as you crank it RIGHT after draining the oil so there is still the maximum amount of oil left on the parts. That said, I'm not recommending you do this frequently, just saying if done properly you shouldn't cause damage.
Thanks from JeffD

I'm gonna guess there isn't a way to clear the oil light?

Without the dealerships machine that is.
