Great article , very clear with good pics.
A few things I worked out while following it :
If you live in the UK or Europe 3 Quarts ( 3/4 of a US Gallon ) is 2.8 litres or 5 pints of oil.
I used 20W50 semi-synthetic oil.
Warm the bike engine first if it’s cold - the oil will run out more freely.
If you don’t have a filter wrench and the old filter is hard to remove I was recommended the following trick by 2 different mechanics. - You can hammer a screwdriver clean through the sides of the old filter and then bang on the handle of the screwdriver ( anti-clockwise) until the filter unscrews. I used a rubber mallet to avoid dinging the paint. It’s an ugly but effective way to get the job done.
I should have invested in a box of disposable gloves
