Service Help File: Changing the Motor Oil and Filter, and Checking the Motor Oil Level.

Also See Attachments.

-----

Checking the motor oil's level in your Road Star Warrior is different than you probably expect and not realizing this can be a little embarrassing in the forums. Please take a few minutes to view this Yamaha video at least twice because the procedure is important, and its different enough its worth a second look. If you own a Warrior then you want to know about this.

If you need replacement oil plugs, get them from Yamaha dealer locally or remove both of yours during an oil change and match at the local auto parts store for length. Oil plugs are 12mm with 1.5 pitch and 17mm hex head. Length could be standard or special, don't know.

Its possible to avoid the need to over-torque the steel oil plug into the aluminum motor by using new oil plug gaskets (washers) every oil change, or every second oil change if you want to keep track. They are 14mm aluminum oil pan plug gaskets, try Dorman #65292 (www.DormanProducts.com). The Dorman washers are available online and in local auto parts stores. Here's the Dorman website to see what vehicles interchange the same washer http://www.dormanproducts.com/gsearch.aspx?type=keyword&q=65292 . If buying online then verify quantity you are buying for the price. IMO avoid the plastic/nylon washers. Also avoid copper washers since the motor is aluminum: http://www.berridge.com/Preventing%20Electrolysis.pdf

[Added} this is an updated link for the attached PDF for the JASO-MA 'wet-clutch' information and links to additional reading: JASO MA and JASO MB classifications - oilspecifications.org

[Added} two additional PDF files: JASO (use for wet clutch proof) and API (use for service grade proof).

[Added} Updated BOSCH 3323 and 3323ST oil filter dimensions (verify bypass valve psi for 3323ST).
