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. It´s 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! You´ll 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 it´s still sealed, then you dodged one.
