mikev Posted July 20, 2022 Report Share Posted July 20, 2022 Since buying my v11 sport earlier this year I've logged about ~750 miles. Bike has ~25.5k miles now. I got it at ~24.75k Things I've noticed include, sometimes bike sputters out and stalls at low idle. Occasionally I accidentally "find" a neutral gear where it should not be when shifting. The neutral light works sometimes, usually when bike is warmed up it stops lighting up. And, sometimes putting the kickstand down when in gear turns engine off and sometimes it doesn't. Browsing the forum, seems like many of these things are quirky things others with this model experience too. Just checking I am right about these things. Yesterday I after a great ride on a hot day home from work I backed the bike into garage and it was running in neutral, steering seemed to whine a little, for the first time I've noticed it. Fluid levels look ok. I've been thinking about what kind of maintenance I should do, change oil, maybe change drive shaft fluid. Found fewer videos about how to change the oil on youtube than I expected. It looks like you drain by removing the plug, then remove the plate/cover on the sump and replace the filter. One video shows this filter as a Bosch 3300 which is a typical looking car-like filter with a metal cup. You drain oil and remove filter cover and replace it. (this version is in the manual) Seems pretty easy. Another video I found had a completely different filter, kind of like some of my Toyotas have just the filter part & O rings without the metal cup. A large bolt ran up thru the filter and exterior filter cap to remove it. And yet another showed someone removing the entire sump to get at the filter. Can anyone here fill me in on how to do the oil change and any other maintenance I should be thinking about doing? Tips & tricks etc. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
