oil change info for 996
 
Which bolt is the one to drain the oil??? there is a smaller allen bolt right next to the filter than there is a larger one about 3-4 inches away.

The attached page is out of an '01 748 service manual, but it should apply to a 996 as well.

Specified Torques:
Oil drain plug: 42 Nm
Mesh filter duct plug: 20 Nm
Oil mesh filter: 42 Nm
Oil filter: 17 Nm

The oildrain plug is right UNDER the engine. Itīs a 12mm allenhead (i believe) and rather large, about 1" in diameter

For all that is holy, do NOT use the small allen next to the oilfilter! Youīll never get it to seal properly

erniespts14, I just did a search on the old site and found a great step by step instruction on how to change the oil on a SBK and generac. It is Bucklew and also has tourge values on all that you have asked. It also has photos. I did this search because my 748 is coming up on an oil change in the very near future. Hope this helps.

I am such an idiot!!!

Instead of removing the oil drain bolt from the crankcase, I removed the bolt right underneath the oil mesh screen to drain the oil.

No wonder all the oil didn't come out.

Now I read that, this will be a problem? I rode the bike and checked the bolt again. Still on tight and no leaks. Should I worry?

Unfortunatly.. Yes...

The small bolt just under the oilmesh is there to plug a hole drilled for cutting the oillines in the block. Several people have tried to loosen it and then it was a real PITA to get it to seal.

Check it after a long, hard and warm ride. If itīs still sealed, then you dodged one.
