97 ZZR250 oil change time

Discussion in 'Maintenance and Servicing' started by Kurds, Jan 17, 2012.

  1. Hey guys just chasing the oil filter part/type/name for a 1997 ZZR250 also please recommended oil. Bike has done 31000km

  2. Supercheap do a filter for it for around $10, grab some Castrol Activ4T while you're there, too.

    From memory the ZZ-R take 1.9, so you should get two changes out of 4L.

  3. Awesome thanks guys. Going to give my first ever oil change a crack, wish me luck
  4. Right, so I have finally gotten around to it.
    Bike Warm... Check
    Drain bolt removed... Check
    Old Oil dumped... Check
    Oil Filter bolt removed... Impossible. Need a bit of help here, it seems way too tight any idea's or tips for getting this sucker out without dropping the bike on my head?
  5. Nevermind got it :D
