Sorry I correct the upper nut goes with 52 Nm and the lower is just 18 Nm.

Also, I didn't mention that I put my stock screen on a Madstad adjustable mount. The buffeting on my bike isn't bad, but I think the notion of adjusting the windscreen is a solid one, so I tried it out. I need to ride with it more and try different settings before giving my verdict on it.

Yes, I drained from both initially.

The new oil amounts are:

3.1 liter without changing oil filter.

3.4 liter (3.6 qts) with oil filter change.

I'll need to check, but I'm pretty sure the Service Manual says 4.2 liters. I'm not sure what you mean by 'new', but this is a 2013 model, not a 2014.

4.2 liter is the amount if you're filling a completely dry enging (from a complete reassembly) and by new I mean the oil you're putting back into the engine. I also have a 2013 model and am referencing a 2012 manual. It's on page 3-25.

I need to drain some oil before I go on.
This reminds me of something else - the oil plugs came off with a copper looking gasket - Never seen one of those before, replaced it with a normal crush washer - will this be ok, or do I need one-o-them coppery thingies?
Oh, and any spoke advice? Link to useful discussion?

Barefoot, those gaskets are in cooper, you can replace them with similar ones, for example those for the break hoses. They can be aluminum or Cooper. Normal stainless steel washer is not as soft as Cooper or aluminum, does not seal as much.

Also, put some Teflon tape (white color, it's use to seal pipes when screwing) around the plug to improve sealing.

I doubt it will hurt anything, but this is not generally done and certainly not required. It will likely also affect torque readings if you're using a torque wrench. I wouldn't use the stuff for oil drain plugs. And I think it works only if you have special tapered fittings like are used for plumbing and pneumatic fittings.

Yamaha specs two different types of sealing washers - solid copper ones for the two crankcase drain plugs and aluminum built-up ones for the two final drive plugs. Why the difference? Don't have the slightest idea. Can you you use one type or the other for both? Probably. Can you use generic ones form the hardware or auto parts store? If the right size, probably. If they seal, that's all that is required. Like all of these sealing washers, many just continue to re-use them indefinitely and they seldom leak. Others replace them religiously with the exact ones Yamaha specs. YMMV.

A new owner to the fold

Well after 2 years of procrastination, I finally pulled the trigger on a new 2013 in white. My boss made me too good of a deal ( I work in a Yamaha shop) on one that was ordered with the 20% buy down that Yamaha offered to help alleviate some inventory in the warehouse. Add to that the crazy low 3.49% financing it turned into a no brainer.

After seeing that the standard 2014 wasn't great leaps and bounds different, I figured the 2013 would be just fine. I really like the white color the best anyhow.

Pic's to follow in a couple of days as I'll take possession of it on Saturday
