Oil and filter Change.

Oil and filter change today @ 1000miles.
Bonnie had the 500 service but I really wanted fully synthetic.
So, 3.4 litres of Motul 10/40 as recommended by eisen77 and a new filter.
Very neat to see the fluorescent green lubricant through the sight glass!
Note:
I know what I'm doing (they used to let me build aircraft) but I thought I'd watch a YouTube vid for any hints. Came across a guy Carrying out the same process on a T100.
He complains about "a terrible place to put and an oil filter and needing a wrench that can't be bought"!

and "of all the stupid things to do, they used an 8mm allen key".

Really mate, don't make a vid if you don't know what you are talking about. My 5˘, IMHO

65mm 14 flute filter wrench
8mm socket wrench
Funnel
Measuring jug
Low profile drain tray
Paper towel.

Has it taken you a whole year to do 1000 miles?
You're gonna like the 300V oil that Eisen77 recommended you

I used a Triumph OE filter and erm... some silicone on the crush washer.
