    Performed my first gearbox oil change yesterday, have been studying it, wondering if it could be done without removing the RH exhaust pipe because it looks like the plug is too close to the crossover pipe to be removed. After a 50 mile ride in 45 degree weather, I grabbed my open ended 24 mm wrench (which is about a foot long) and it fit nicely above the header pipe allowing a quick and easy removal of the plug, which safely dropped into the plastic drain pan undamaged. And it could be retrieved because the oil drains very slowly with the filter in the way. The filter can then be pulled out with long needle nose pliers. Opening the filler plug then allows the rest of the oil to drain, which I let it do overnight. Reverse the procedure with new o'rings, and oil, easy peasy.

    I know this was about 2 years ago but is it the case? So I don’t have to remove the exhaust pipe? I’ve been trying to figure out what wrench and it seems like you answered it. 24mm it is and I’ll try it without removing the pipe.

    I reckon if you use a suitable socket drive you don't have to remove anything. It may be more accessible on centre stand but side stand will have the drain lowest; both drain and fill being on the left.

    Centre stand is a H&B option. Centre stand loosen. Side stand drain. Centre stand again, fill 500ml.


    I've got a racket going on in neutral. I reckon the monkeys have either used the wrong oil or the wrong amount; it's a used bike. Gearbox oil change called for.

    you have be specific about what year an if six or 5 speed. the 2017 6 speed is 500 ml but the 5 speed 2015 is 1000. also pull the fill plug once the drain plug is out. it will drain right away if warm.
