3. Change the final drive case oil

The machine must be taken on a journey of sufficient length to warm up the final drive to normal operating temperature before the oil is drained.
With the machine supported on its center stand on level ground, remove the filter and drain plugs and allow the oil to drain into a suitable container. Use a sheet of cardboard to keep the oil off the rear wheel and tire. Renew the plug sealing washers if they are damaged or flattened, and clean both plugs; wipe any metal particles from the drain plug magnetic insert. When the oil has fully drained, refit the drain plug, tightening it to the specified torque setting and pour in the correct amount of the specified type and viscosity of oil.

Check the oil level as described in the Minor Service - Check the final case oil level
