Just done my oil change, glad i did, it was brown and horrible and when the filter came off, really full of metallic bits.

Nice new oil until ~ 500 miles

How long and how many miles do you intend to keep the 800 for?

Quite some time or until something better comes along  :007:

Seriously, I hope to keep this for a while, so long as reliability and ownership is good

So far, I am very happy with the ownership side of things, dealer great, bike exactly what i need. Time will tell for reliability

Will the spare oil filter I bought for my old Sprint ST 1050 fit ? Also do I need to get a washer for the sump plug when I come to do mine?  :189:

I think most of the Triumph use the same filter.........only said because I see them on ebay and they list to fit quite a few models, but dont take it as gospel please.

But yes it is recommemded to replace teh copper washer....but who does all teh time?

Its an Aluminium washer btw, not one of the copper compression ones.

Infact when i took my sump plug out, there wasn't a washer on it  :187:

Copper becomes work hardened with use but can, in a pinch, be reused through anealing by heating to cherry red and either quenching or letting cool naturally. Not so sure about aluminium though.

Can anybody tell why you would change oil at 170 pointless exercise, you are meant to
run in with the mineral oil for 500 so that the engine is run in and not polished, but its your
bike your choice
