My first oil change on my 696...

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!

Noob!

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

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.
