How To Change Your Oil and Filter-Suzuki GS

September 27th, 2008 · No Comments

By popular demand I have undertaken the task of documenting one of my recent oil and filter changes on my GS850GT. I hope you find this helpful as you care for and maintain your classic Suzuki GS series motorcycle. This procedure will be similar for many of the GS series bikes. However, you are encouraged to refer to your owner’s manual, Suzuki Shop manual, Clymer, Haynes, etc, for further information specific to your motorcycle.

GM Gen III & IV V8 Oil Cooler Adapter Block Kit

September 10th, 2008 · No Comments

Clean the block mounting surface area and then install the supplied gasket and oil cooler adapter block. Install the oil cooler adapter bolts and tighten the bolts to 106 in-lbs (12 Nm).

If you are using this adapter on a vehicle that does not have an oil temperature sensor or has the sensor mounted elsewhere, then you should plug the oil temperature sensor port with the supplied M12 plug and crush washer. If you are not using this adapter to supply oil to a turbocharger, supercharger or other application then you should plug the 1/8” NPT port with the supplied fitting.
