its easy, pull the cap off, pull the bolt, pull the filter, let everything drain, make sure the gasket is on the filter, change the crush washer on the bolt.. put filter on (pre lube), put the bolt back in, fill up with how ever much you need to put in (they are different)... start up, let sit for a few min's check level and put the cap on and your done...... its not that hard.... make sure you torque the drain bolt!!!! and use suzuki filters!

I let it run for about 2-3minutes..but I noticed that the level on the through the glass doesn't show either L or F. :{ It looks like there is no oil at all! I changed the filter as well and poured in 3.7q
