I need to change the oil on my 94 750. I have done it once when I first got the bike, by removing what I thought was the drain plug, which contained the filter screen as well. Now it is time for another oil change. The bolt head is very stripped, so I ordered a new one, or so I thought.

The part number for what is called the oil drain plug references a way smaller bolt than the cap that you remove to get at the oil screen, and change the oil, according to the manual. What I would like to know is, can I drain the oil by removing the oil drain "plug", which seems to be at the bottom of the pan, or should I always be removing the "cap", and cleaning out the screen as well.

I ask because I really need an oil change, but I don't have the proper tool to remove the cap, since it is very stripped. I have ordered a new cap bolt, but I want to do an oil change now.

Thanks!

You can change oil from the drain plug on the bottom, but it is recommended to do it from the filter screen plug.

It is better to do it from the bottom than not do it at all
