In this video I narrate as my wife conducts the oil and filter change procedure on the Star / Vstar / Dragstar / XVS / 650. Though I do explain my reasoning as to why I do not first turn on a bike that has been sitting for a week right before I'm about to dump the oil, your choice.

Note that I would have preferred a small 17mm spanner to open the nut below but I could not find it and went with a crows foot as shown in the video.

The filter cover O ring should be inspected and replaced if necessary. If you don't know the last replacement, replace it.

Refilling the oil is a two person job unless you have a big stand on level ground.

I use Yamalube 10w40. Check with your local Yamaha dealer if you are not sure of the proper oil weight.
