I literally have just brought home a 1990 vn750 and want desperately to change the oil. I am not entirely stupid but is the drain bolt located behind the kickstand or under the bike on the oil pan?????
Thanks for the info. I used the side drain so I could clean the filter. It was a suprisingly neat job. After much thought I decided to go with shell rotella -t 15w40 (embarassingly enough walmart had it on sale for 7.85 for the gallon) I had a gallon of mobil one syn in hand when I noticed it; and the shifts and power are noticibly smoother already (mostly in my head). I will say the level is tough, I filled to the right mark and then ran the engine and let it cool and it looked like it was way low so I added some and ran around the block a few times and then it was too high so I drained a bit and it was just right ( damn I feel like I am in the three bears) all told with filter change it was about 3.5 liters of oil.For a 15 year old bike and roughly 20,000 miles she is smooth (never had a shafty before). I ordered a set of highway hawk filter covers thanks to you guys also ( I actually like the way the filter cover look sticking out just want pretty ones). Oh also I primed my oil filter like I do for my truck's change (filled it with oil and let it sit while I did everything and my oil pressure light went out 10 seconds or less after initial start up. Thanks for the heads up.
