Synthetic Oils….most use Full Synthetic 5W40 or 10W40.
Just be sure you
DO NOT USE energy conserving oil. This will damage the clutch system on the bike. Use only oil that meets or exceeds the manufacturers recommendations. again, DONOT USE energy conserving oil.
There are 2 , repeat 2 oil drain plugs. You must remove them both!
Oil is checked with the bike upright , not on the kickstand with the dipstick just setting on top.
NOT screwed back in.


CharlieDgets credit for this idea: after the first time you check the oil with the bike up on a block of wood or someone holding it upright for you, and you know the level is correct, put the bike back on the kickstand and check the dipstick again.
Scratch a mark on the dipstick where the new full mark is and you can from now on check the oil while the bike is leaning over on the kickstand. Much easier.
Always rub a little oil on the oil filter gasket before screwing it on..

Removing the Stock Emblems
these will come off very easy if they are warm
Use a hair dryer or sit in the hot summer sun and you can slowly twist them off.
Most guys use dental floss and a sawing motion to slice thru the sticky tape
between the badge and the bike. remove glue reside with goof off or the like and wax.

Great info, thanks for taking the time to do it. The link near the top for the Hicks A/F screw (HicksA/FScrew….http://home.earthlink.net/~hickmachine/products.htm) is dead, but you can still find the screw at the Hicks link near the bottom. Thanks again for the easy info!

Hate to call out another dead link, but the Dyna Beads link goes nowhere. I searched a handful of sites, and this one seems to be the cheapest, even after shipping, and they come pre-packed in the tubes.

The crush washers are missing a 0 in the parts number 94109-12000 is what i believe that they should be.

On a side note, has anyone had luck finding these? I can find the 14000 like goes on the shadows, all day long. But the 12mm is seemingly more difficult to find.

Earlier this year I went to my local stealer, told them I needed crush washers for my VTX 1300. Paid for them and went on my way. Wasn't until after I got home (and after the stealer closed) that I noticed he had given my the 14mm washers! Was able to pick up a set of 12mm washers at my local Advance Auto, so no riding time lost. Took the 14mm's back to the stealer and changed them out for the right ones, so I'll have them for the next oil change!

Moble One M1 110 oil Filter ?

Thanks for all the hard work that went into putting together the common parts list numbers :mosh:Has anyone else had trouble when replacing their oil filter with the M1 110 oil filter. The starter thread was different and would not screw on. I returned the filter and went with the Pure one oil filter.
