Oil Change Time for the Intruder
Helpful hints and entertainment from the Intruder Alert group

To aid in the never ending quest for lower cost aftermarket "stuff" for our bikes, here is a list of available oil filters which are said to fit the Intruder 1400 and 1500 series bikes.
If you know of others, feel free to e-mail me with the information and I will add it to the list.
Many thanks to whomever did the research (I'm just the Library).

Note- JC Whitney filters are said to be EMGO and EMGO are said to make Suzuki OEM filters. They look identical, with a "O" ring instead of a flat gasket surface, however, the JCW models call for changing every 1500 miles instead of the usual 3000, so take that into consideration. Also, JC Whitney part numbers change with every new catalog, so at least part of the listed item number may be different in your current catalog.

Oil Change Tips for the LC:
1.) The oil fill cap on the LC is located behind the right side rear chrome engine cover. Remove the two 4mm Allen head screws to remove the cover. Be sure that all the rubber bumpers and metal washers come off with the cover, or you'll find them later in your crankcase!
2.) The LC has what appears to be an oil drain plug near the oil filter. this plug is an oil pressure diagnostic plug and should not be used for draining oil. Use the one near the rear of the pan.
3.) Once the oil filter and plug are removed, allow the bike to drain for a half hour if time permits. This will aid in draining the trapped oil from the oil cooler.
4.) The book calls for 4.5 quarts, but don't expect to get that much in there. Always go by the upper level mark in the sight glass. Overfilling will cause oil blowby to enter the airbox.

What's the best oil to use?:
I firmly believe clean oil is good for a bike, the rest is up to the rider. :-)
If you keep clean oil in your bike, no matter what brand, it will likely tear up from something else.
