I watched the tech do it. The exhaust cans make it really difficult, and of course the filter is a cartridge type which you access by the side port. It appears to be a bit tough to get the filter porthole cover off, but nothing super complex about it.

Downside no manual out yet so we don't have torque specs for these items.

I Ride: GSX-R750R LTD, 888, 916, 999R, 1199S Tri, RC51, RS250, Z1000SX, ZX7R M2, ZX7RR N1, WR426F
It is easy. I've done it twice.

Remove the left lower. Take some aluminum foil and make a v-shaped cover for the silencers to prevent oil from getting on the silencer and drain any oil from the oil filter compartment when the filter cover is removed into your drain pan. Remove the drain plug. Remove the two bolts which hold the cover to the oil filter compartment. Get a small piece of wood to protect the engine cases and use as a fulcroum point with a #2 flat screwdriver. Gently and gradually work the lower edge of the filter cover at alternate ends to wiggle the cover off. On the oil filter side of the cover is a cylindrical bore with two o-rings, so it takes some patience to coax the cover off.

Once the cover is off take the tip of the #2 screwdriver and push the oil pressure relief valve (black disc in the end of the oil filter) in and hook the edge of the filter with the scewdriver and pull the cartridge filter out.

Replace the filter, put the cover back on, screw the drain plug back in, remove the aluminum foil and wipe everything off to make sure there is no oil on the engine or silencer and put the lower back on. Fill with oil. It takes about 3.5 quarts. Using a flashlight you can see enough of the oil level window on the other side of the bike to see how full the bike is. Start the bike, check the level again and fill till you get the level in the window to the top mark.
Thanks from Xbox and EvoL

@Ray916MN, thanks for a great step-by-step guide

I will be taking this job off from my dealers plate, as they've never ever worked on a Pani before. After the horror stories, well.....

One quick question - any washers or O-rings need changing?

Awesome, This will save quite a bit. What weight oil did you use. I was thinking about using Amsoil MCF10w40. Its what I've used on my other bikes with wet clutches and they shift sooooo much better with amsoil. Also is there anything that I might need to check on my first service??

Parts numbers for filter and 2 o-rings

Filter is 444.4.029.2B

. two O-rings #886.5.056.1A

It's probably overkill but anytime I pull something like the filter housing, I replace with new o-rings, cheap and that reduces risk of leaking.

Not overkill at all. Doing that is like using a new crush washer on the other models. Prevention is always better than cure!
