how to change the oil of the motorcycle yamaha t 700

Here are the general steps you must follow to change the oil:

  1. First, make sure you have all the necessary equipment: the correct motor oil for your motorcycle (check your owner's manual for the recommended type and amount of oil), a pan to drain used oil, a wrench for the oil cap drain, a new oil filter and an oil filter wrench.

  2. Stand the motorcycle upright and make sure it is level.

  3. Start the engine and let it run for a couple of minutes to allow the oil to warm up. This will allow the oil to flow more easily.

  4. Once the engine is warm, turn it off and find the oil drain plug under the engine. Use the appropriate wrench to loosen the drain plug and place the pan underneath to catch the used oil.

  5. Once all the oil has drained, make sure the drain plug is tight. Remove the old oil filter and replace it with a new filter. Be sure to apply some new oil to the filter's sealing ring so that it seals properly.

  6. Pour the new oil into the engine through the fill hole. Be sure to add the correct amount of oil per your owner's manual, and wait a few minutes for the oil to settle.

  7. Start the engine and let it run for a few minutes. Shut off the engine and check the oil level to make sure it is at the correct level.

  8. Once you're sure the oil level is correct, close the oil filler cap and check for leaks under the motorcycle.

Remember to dispose of used oil properly and respect all safety measures during the oil change. If you have doubts or don't feel safe performing the oil change yourself, it is always better to go to a specialized motorcycle mechanic.
