Have to callhere. I doubt you have any spanner sockets. And I know well that you didn't but one from ACE Hardware.

Misread the post completely. Thought you were speaking about the top-side nut, not the spanner nut. Apologize for the misunderstanding on my part. I do in fact have a bunch of different spanner sockets, I was lucky enough to buy a giant box of them from my school before I graduated. They got some shiny new ones. Spending $10 grand in the last year with MAC Tools alone and being an educated mechanic, I wouldn't be worth my salt if I couldn't service steering head bearings.

Oil change question

I just completed my first oil change. Things look good.

One question though --

the manual states that the engine oil quantity is 1.30L without filter replacement and 1.40L with filter replacement.

I've seen quite a few people state that they put in 1.30L (with a filter replacement) which seems too low.

Which is correct?

Regardless I put in 1.30L and then put in more oil little by little until I was halfway between the sight glass.

1/10 th Liter is not going to make or break anything. Just make sure after you button it all up, warm it up, and let drain for 2-3 minutes, its between the lines on the sight glass( with bike vertical, on flat ground), and you will be good to go.

How do you change the speedometer from kilometers to miles? Looked in the owners manual and tried a search but didn't turn up anything.

From the manual (page 4-4)

To switch the speedometer and odometer/tripmeter displays between kilometers and miles, press the "SELECT 2" button until the display changes after the key is turned to "ON".

I've as much as 2 quarts in mine. The level was just above the top of the sight glass. I wouldn't consider it overfilled, but I wouldn't put any more in either.
