Change the filter insert

fill it with oil

bolt everything back again (14 or so bolts)

Why BMW? Why?

====Yamaha -- 1 drain plug and unscrew the filter -- 10 minutes and done.
Add removal of left fairing, gas tank, batter cover, skid plate, glove box, several hoses connecting tanks, and a couple screens. I think I could put a top end in my dirt bike in less time.
