I put on front and rear stand to make enough room for drain pan. The first time I didn't change the washer and had a small leak. Be sure to change it each time.

Have not changed rubber gaskets on oil filter cap, so far so good

I changed the washer and there seems to be a very slight seepage. I'm going to get under it tonight.

Just to clarify, what are we talking about when we go hand tight then quarter turn? We are only moving the wrench 90 degrees or so? That seems like very little torque. I am so scared of the drain plug coming out and dumping oil on my rear tire at speed...

I think the best way we can avoid over or under tightening bolts is to get a torque wrench.

There is a thread in these forums on what would be the best range of a torque wrench to have on simple maintenance jobs for us shade tree mechanics.

Keep in mind the plastic pan under the bolt will collect some oil upon draining. Leave the bike on side stand and you will see excess oil seeping out from plastic cut outs. I put cardboard under it over night.

The drain plug was a tad loose.

I originally tightened it from the right side. Redid it on the left and put some weight on the ratchet. I added about a quarter turn to it.

Thanks guys !

I've been wrenching on things for 25 yrs now and do very well with "going by feel" but I'm still a firm believer in torque wrenches. I have three sizes of Craftsman Torque wrenches, 3/8" drive that measures in/lbs for the small bolts, 3/8" drive that measures from 25-75 ft/lbs, and then 1/2" drive that does 50-150 ft/lbs. I recently was given a gift of a Snap-On torque wrench that is also 3/8" drive and does 25-75 ft/lb range. It is so precise and polished that it feels like a surgical instrument. Now that I've seen that the axle nut torque on the rear end of a Panigale is 170 ft/lb range I'll need to add one more to the collection as soon as I can afford it.

It's 13-15 Nm.

There is a link to all panigale hardware torque specs in these forums.

I also was lucky enough to receive that exact Snap-On tool as a gift. Has a special place in the toolbox.
