Hi, Anyone who can guide me through the first oil change for my 2006 Yamaha majesty please?
By reading instructions " How to do oil change...etc" from this web site...etc. i know that Oil filter element and drain plug are located on the left side of the scooter, however I dont know which cowling or cover needs to be removed to get access to the oil filter element and drain plug.
Also from the Yamaha User Manual, it shows how to do oil change, but it does not show to get access to the oil filter element and drain plug.
After just having done my first oil change on my 2005 Majesty, here's a question.
First, I had no difficulty doing it. All went according to plan. But I didn't remove the oil plug bolt which is on the same side as the oil filter cover plate (as shown in the top photo above) rather I removed the bottom plug (the one that has the metal oil strainer behind it, as shown in the bottom photo above) and let all of the oil just drain down out the bottom into the used oil pan.
I know that the owner's manual indicates to remove the side oil drain plug and says nothing about the bottom mounted plug, but unless I missed something, I see absolutely no reason to remove the side-mounted oil drain plug since you can fully drain through the bottom plug and refill through the dipstick opening.
I think the only real drawback to doing it this way is that it can be rather messy. Using the drain plug is clean and quick. Since I installed a drain plug with a magnetic tip I need to remove it and wipe the magnet clean anyway.
You should be able to. I don't always do mine. Only one time did I see dirt in the Screen. That was the first time I changed the oil and filter. Note: When you remove the Screen, Some more oil will drain. So it will take more to fill. And careful of the O-Ring. Make sure its Clean and not torn when you reinstall.
I have almost 10k miles on mine.
