The gasket is pretty cheap. It doesn't really hurt to change out either.

But, yes, I think you could get away without getting a new oil filter gasket.

I am not worried about the cost of the gasket, it was just at the time i didn't pick one up and the dealership isn't open on sunday. I reused it, so far so good. Will pick up a couple extras and keep them around.

Awesome write up! I had an atv that had a wet clutch transmision and I ran regular auto oil in it for about two years and it was fine. I don't think they need a friction modifier in it like a clutch type limited slip rearend does.

I just hand tightened them, plus a little more and it does not seem to be leaking.
not too tight on them housing bolts.......they snap off


nice post

Thanks everyone.

Yeah I really went easy on the oil filter housing bolts. Literally hand tight and a 1/4th turn.

I may make a video for the valve adjustment at 16k.

Or at least another picture write up. I do think that a video is more helpful for valves though, because understanding what you're doing helps a lot. In contrast an oil change is a lot simpler.

At least the valves don't require removing the camshafts.

I'm definitely interested in seeing a video for the valve adjustment. so far even with owning the manual it seems like a lot of work for me to jump into.
hopefully by the time i get up to 16K ill be more comfortable with tearing into my engine.

Yeah. I just decided to buy the SM. This is a new bike so there's not a lot of info like for the Ninja 250 online. I decided it'd be a fun project to help provide information as I figure it out. I don't think the valves will be too impossible after reading the SM. I think with removing the tank there should be enough space to get my telescopic magnet in there.

Thanks for making this tutorial. I'm sure I could've have figured it out myself, but it's always helpful and makes me more confident tackling the job after seeing some pictures and a description.
