    Step 7: Pour the new oil through the funnel slowly and close the refill cap.
    Note: Motul bottles have level marker on one side,so you can pour 1.2 L exactly. Also the way they pack the oil is brilliant

    Level Marker on oil bottle? i used motul 3000 and no level marker on it...and nor do i see any on the bottle u have used...

    Btw the white plug is also a type of oil filter...u should have cleaned it....i guess its the equivalent of centrifugal filter(i know it sounds stupid...centrifugal filter works on cenrifugal force and i see no such mechanism at this part but thats what the mechanic at SVC told me...members please confirm) which all pulsars have which can be accessed by opening clutch cover....i dunno if the NS has such kind of a centrifugal filter..

    And oil filter is to be changed at every alternate service according to the bajaj manual...and for them oil change is to be done every alternate service(who are they kidding? )...so its kinda confusing to change oil filter everytime u do an oil change or extend it for every alternate service..

    The Motul 3000 series oils are bottled in India. Those bottles dont have a level marker.
    However the 5100, 7100, 300V series oils are imported and those bottles have level markers.

    Cool Pulsar 200NS Engine Oil and Oil Filter Change(Better Version).

    This is a better version of the Pulsar 200NS DIY Engine Oil and Oil Filter change...

    Things you will need...

    1)An 18mm socket wrench

    2)8mm combination/box-ended wrench

    3)Recommended Oil Filter

    4)ENGINE OIL OF COURSE!

    I recommend Motul.

    5)A container to hold the oil that you are draining.








    So lets begin;


    First,locate your engine oil drain bolt (18mm bolt head).

    Use your socket wrench and get the bolt loosened.

    After you've loosened the bolt,it would be advisable to leave your Engine Oil Filling cap open,to facilitate the smooth draining of your old engine oil.

    Now,loosen the oil drain bolt completely,and let your old oil flow out

    WARNING:If you are changing your engine oil while your engine is HOT,your engine oil will be HOT too.Be careful!


    After the above step,pull out the Magnetic strainer. It might be dirty(i.e you might find some metal filings stuck on it),so clean it carefully.

    Now head over to the other side of your bike.

    Locate your Oil Filter housing bolts,

    Name:  5.jpg

Size:  87.3 KB

    Loosen and remove these bolts using your 8mm wrench.

    Open the covering of the Oil filter housing,and remove your old Oil Filter.
    NOTE: You might need a Needle-Nose Plier to remove the Oil Filter out.(I did not).

    Name:  12.jpg
Views: 34888
Size:  86.4 KBName:  13.jpg
Views: 36546
Size:  88.9 KB


    Put in your new Oil Filter,and close the Oil Filter housing.

Size:  87.0 KBName:  15.jpg
Views: 29828
Size:  87.6 KB


    Now head back to the other side of your bike again, and put back in the Magnetic strainer that you had removed and cleaned earlier. By now almost all of your old Engine Oil should be drained.

    Name:  16.jpg

    Tighten your Oil drain bolt.

    Name:  17.jpg
Views: 32986

    Now,back to the other side of your bike again...

    Fill in your new engine oil(~1.2-1.3 Liters) and close the Oil Filler Cap.

    Start your engine,and let it idle for a few minutes.



    Well,there you go!
    You have now successfully changed your Engine Oil and Oil Filter.

    Cheers!

    Cheers!
    Thanks for the detailed writeup and crisp pictures as well...
    Could you please elaborate on cleaning the oil strainer.. I mean how did you clean it? Just by shaking it profusely or using a cloth and cleaning or using kerosene/diesel and letting it dry well before fixing the strainer back???
