Getting the tools ready

To change oil on a Indian Scout it is necessary to purchase an Indian Motorcycle oil change kit from an authorized dealer. You will also need a bucket, a 6mm hex key, a funnel, a pair of gloves and a couple of paper towels.

Cold oil tends to be thicker and, therefore, move slowly. Here at Ends Cuoio we highly recommend you to purchase Indian Motorcycle® genuine parts.  

The actual steps for the oil change on Indian Scout

As we said before, let’s start by warming up our motorcycle. When it is warm we can proceed 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
  4. Remove the original oil filter

Once the oil is all out: screw the plugs back in place, install a new oil filter (remember to lubricate the gasket with new oil) and fill the oil tank to the correct level.

Now it si time tu put a saddlebag on your Indian!
