In the world we live in a lot of people have a motorcycle and price it for its power and beauty.
Some of them treat their bike like family members they would give up their life for. I cannot even begin to explain that feeling to you, but i am sure you already know what I am talking about anyway.Like any other relationship, the one that bond bikers and bikes, is base on respect and sharing: if you treat her right and with respect, you will be able to share together unforgettable moments.

Treat her wrong and you will regret it. Motorcycles will not forgive misstreatment, that is why maintenance is very importan!

Do maintenance right!

This is a rather easy operation to perform, however is really important to keep high concentration levels. A mistake could compromise your motorcycle engine life.
Working meticulously is possible to perform maintenance operation from which your motorcycle life could really benefit. Let’s dive into the process.


Getting everything ready for the oil change

Beside of a Indian ® Scout ® oil change kit purchased from an Indian ® Official Dealer we are going to need:

  • 1 Bucket
  • 1 6mm Hex key
  • 1 Funnel
  • Gloves
  • Paper towels

Its is important to worm up your bike first. Cold oil tends to be thicker and, therefore, move slowly. Nota bene
Ends Cuoio highly recommend the purchase of Indian Motorcycle® genuine parts

Now that our motorcycle is warm we can proced with the oil change:

  1. Untight the drain plugs
  2. Place a bucket under the bike and remove the plugs
  3. Check the plugs for debrids and clean them

Once the oil is out, screw the plugs back in place and install a new oil filter. Remember to lubricate the gasket with new oil.
