oil recommendations for S1000R and how many quarts
« on: June 08, 2018, 06:18:37 AM »
Im going to my own oil change this time around.  What type of oil would you guys recommend for a 2015 SKR?  And how many quarts.  Ill be doing the same oil change to my 2016 SKRR.  And instead of the stock oem oil filter Im going with the K&N through my bro who is a dealer.

OC619 Mahle oil filter is oem. Your K&N (sorry on your brother) is not as good. here is where to buy them for $11.

6 at a time cheaper here:

Search oil but use 5W40  motorcycle oil, get the correct torque for the drain plug, get new aluminum crush washers. Fill to middle of window, start if up run for a minute, shut down for a minute  and re fill to 3/4 or so of window.
Motul 7100, oh yea.

If only there was a manual of some sort which told you how much and what type of oil your bike took... 



Sorry, my owner's manual is metric, google will tell you what that is in US quarts :P

I just changed from Castrol to Motul 7100 and I am very impressed.
Smoother shifting and the engine runs a bit cooler also the oil smells like roses

Motul 7100, no 5w-40 correct? They only have 10w-40? I was looking myself, and was wondering which weight to try.
