I have a torque wrench that i use for my carbon fiber items for my road bicycle. Would 9 lbf.ft (12 N.M) still be too much?

I hand tightened them with just a 1/4 turn of the ratchet and it doesn't leak.

Yes..1.6 quarts at oil to put back in the cbr when you change the filter as well..

and I am with you PAJKRUBI...cost me $18 from the stealership for everything to change my oil...and that was with 2 quarts of OEM Honda 10-30 oil,gasket and filter ..i guess add another buck for the crush washer that i will change this time......dont know why anyone would pay $20 more just because it comes in a kit ..unless theres something extra in it that makes it worth it we dont know about?

Maybe oil costs more there?

I've never seen a kit like this here.

In Australia the oil is $12 per bottle, the filter $16, the gasket $8, and the washer $4 so the 'kit' is cost effective for me.
I do alot of oil changes as I give my baby a severely hard time at the track.

When I swap to Castrol 4T semi synthetic 10-40w and order the filters & gaskets online in bulk, then I'll change, but for now the kits are great.
I prefer to run the std oil till the bike has done at least 10,000 hard km.

This may be a stupid question. I have not reached the 1000km (first service mark), but while reading the owners manual it states to change the oil at 1000km or 1 month. I'm reaching my 1 month period. Should i change the oil?

Just get the first service done at the dealer @ 1000km.
it has to get the valve clearances done then.
Mine was 4 days old when it had done 1000km, but how old is your bike/km done?

My bike is about one month old and has 200km. So I'm kinda far away from 1000 km. should I wait for the 1000 km service or get it done myself now?

At that rate your first service wont be till next year! haha.

Get out and ride more and do an oil change at 500km.
which is halfway to your valve clearance check.
That would be the best solution in your case.
