a) your fine , don't think you NEED a stand just for the oil change

b) think you need a 12mm for the drain bolt , and if you are changing the filter a 8mm.

get a tool set asap ... is good to have ... and check every bolt you can see while you are at it


dealers must hate this site now .... bet their service departments are looking like a MC41 free-zone

The oil will drain better, as in more completely, with the bike on the side stand than it would on a rear stand.

Refer to this thread: DIY Oil Change

I've done it on the side stand. You'll be fine as mentioned. I used the DIY thread above. Great guide. You user manual is quite helpful too. Good luck.

Can't remember which thread I saw this in but wrap some tin foil around the exhaust near the oil drain plug as this will help keep the oil from dripping onto the pipe.

Manufacturers always recommend using a torque wrench, but in my experience for something as simple as an oil change you can pretty much "feel" what's too loose or too tight.
You should eventually purchase a quality metric box-end wrench for the drain bolt which has a longer handle for better leverage, but even a cheap adjustable wrench will work until then.
I know I wouldn't want to be stuck on the side of the road with just the tools Honda provides, so you should probably add a couple of wrenches and hex keys to your mobile tool kit anyway. My CBR's trunk currently houses the stock tool kit (with some add-ons) and a Stop & Go tubeless repair kit.

Honda USA sucks; they decided to eliminate the full tool kits back with the introduction of the 2006 bikes in 2005, when my wife was buying herself a new Rebel. Yes, I'm still bitter about the lack of a tool kit.

You got toolS with yours? Mine came with a 5mm hex key -- tha's ALL.

I have since added enough to do an oil change, and I'll be adding more as I do other routine chores; I've done routine tasks with the tool kit that came with each motorcycle I've owned, adding tools as needed, and it results in a pretty good set of tools to have along if something goes bad on the road . . . .
