whhoaa thanks for the tip... I changed the oil successfully but i didnt get your warnings till after and luckily i opted to leave the bolt alone... I also flushed all brake and clutch fluid, and radiator luckily, Looks like in ride to ride for the first time
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 believe the hex is a 10mm for the oilmesh. If you have a bike newer then -01 then it´s a 15mm bolt.
The small bolt UNDER the oilmesh.. well.. I´ve heard people using permanent loctite and getting a good seal with that, together with a new crush-washer.
Since you´ve put it back.. Leave it and see. If it starts sweating or dripping, then go with a crush-washer and loctite. Just make sure to clean the threads with brakecleen or some other de-greaser first.

The price was so low I couldn't say no,
In fact, you could day I stole it with cash.
I brought her home Saturday.
I dubbed her Bella.
If I do a ride of, say, 400 km on my 999 I've got to crack the bleed screw and let the air out. It's fitted with remote canisters, but it was the same issue before these. It doesn't seem to use fluid, and I'm not getting any leakage under the slave. I read somewhere, I think, that the master can...
