skyking44 Posted February 26, 2007 Share Posted February 26, 2007 When changing oil on my R1200Rt, I ride the bike to warm up the engine until I feel heat at the oil cooler. That lets me know the engine oil is circulating. I put the bike on the center stand, drain the oil, and remove the oil filter. Let it drain for about fifteen minutes and then replace the filter and drain plug. My questions are: 1. Does the oil drain out of the oil cooler? 2. Does it drain out before and after the oil thermostat closes? 3. Is it better to drain the oil with the bike on the side stand or center stand? Appreciate your input. Link to comment
