    My first oil change on my 696...

    (1/2) > >>

    Roy:
    Can you all take a look at this vid on youtube and let me know if it is a credible source to follow.

    Ducati Monster 696 First Oil Change + Screen Cleaning
    DQ | by Aeva


    I also have a couple of questions based on the video:

    1. Do I need to buy new "crush washers" for the oil drain plug or can I reuse the ones on their currently.

    2. Do I have to clean the oil screen filter?

    3. I'm using the K&N oil filter this time...will I need to go get a torque wrench to tighten it to a certain specification?  Is it also necessary to tighten the oil drain plug to a certain specification?

    4.  I'm sure the ducati manual tells how much oil to use; my local ducati tech said 3 quarts but it sounded like from the video that this guy used only 2 1/2 quarts.  Any 696 owners know the exact amount of oil to use?

    5.  Any other helpful bits of advise would also be appreciated.

    Thanks for your help!

    I don't have the bandwidth right now to watch the video you posted, but you should check out the CA-Cycleworks oil change video. [thumbsup]

    alibaba:
    Workshop manual calls for 3.1 liters  (3.28 quarts = 3 quarts + 8 ounces) of Shell Advance Ultra 4 15W50 weight oil.

    Recommended replacement of crush washer on drain plug (and on filter screen if you elect to clean it).

    Torque for drain plug is 42 NM  (38 min - 46 max)
    Torque for filter screen is same

    I like to follow the torque instructions on what ever filter I purchase.

    alibaba:
    I forgot to mention that while the video shows him filling the engine with only 2 1/2 quarts of oil, remember he did add oil to the filter before installing it.  He also mentions he would check the oil level glass and add oil as needed.  So, 3 1/4 quarts as stated in the workshop manual pretty much agrees with what he is doing here.

    Watch 'em both

    I also have a couple of questions based on the video:

    1. Do I need to buy new "crush washers" for the oil drain plug or can I reuse the ones on their currently.

    No, usually they work several times.  If they do happen to leak you will hate yourself though.  You can by a bunch from an auto parts store cheap.

    2. Do I have to clean the oil screen filter?

    Ducati says not until 22.5K, but, hey, you are cheap labor.

    3. I'm using the K&N oil filter this time...will I need to go get a torque wrench to tighten it to a certain specification?  Is it also necessary to tighten the oil drain plug to a certain specification?

    Filter 11 nm, the rest answered

    4.  I'm sure the ducati manual tells how much oil to use; my local ducati tech said 3 quarts but it sounded like from the video that this guy used only 2 1/2 quarts.  Any 696 owners know the exact amount of oil to use?

    Partially fill filter.  Fill to the line with the bike vertical.  Start bike, let the engine warm up a bit.  Top off.  All the oil will not drain out.

    5.  Any other helpful bits of advise would also be appreciated.

    Thanks for your help!
