    Anyone fancy playing the "Let's help bastett do his first oil and filter change" game?

      So I gathered, but I know something is gonna go wrong, I'm gonna undo the wrong nut trying to get the fairings off and the engine will fall out or something

      I'm gonna get some oil and a filter probably Mon arvo, probably have a stab at the change next Sat. I also want to do some other stuff like gapping the spark plugs, just basic maintainence stuff which should have been done a couple of thousand ks ago

        Bastett I wouldn't bother regapping the plugs, It will only cost you about $7-8 to put new ones in ( as it's a bit of a pain having to remove the tank everytime you go near the plugs I'd just replace them ( you will need a deep socket or box spanner to reach them).16mm I think.

        When buying your new oil and filter make sure you get a new o ring for the filter cover and a new crush washer for the drain plug.
        You don't need to remove the fairings to change the oil or filter but you will have to remove the tank if you chainging the spark plugs (also your air filter is in there too ).
        When refitting your oil filter cover be carefull not to rip the new o ring ( you can use a little grease to help hold it in place ( and if the o ring appears to large try putting it in the fridge for a while.

        Oh and remember to drain the oil before undoing the filter cover !!

        good luck

              Yeah, I did the same thing when changing the oil on a mates DedzedR2fiddy. Drained the oil, then pulled the oil filter out, and dumped hot oil all over my hands...

              You sure about not having to remove fairings gordo? Doesn't the zzr250 have a bellypan?

                Nah, there's a good sized hole right under there where the drain and filter are. Don't have to touch the fairings.

                      You only have to remove the petrol tank to change the plugs they are situated slap bang on the top directly under the tank..

                      No need to remove the fairings to, change the oil,remove the tank or the spark plugs.
