    since some of the oil gets stored in the oil filter chamber,but in case of periodic maintenance (changing oil without changing oil filter) you need to add 1L and not 1.2L(1Land 200ml).


    And regarding the recommended oil for FZ and Fazer is 20W50 OR going for xxW50 (where xx is < 20 ie: 15W50,10W50 etc)
    But in the Old manual of Yamaha Fz-16/ Fz-s (november 2011) which i have with me,, it says, 1.1L with oil filter replecement and 1 L without oil filter replecement, & Grade is given as optional (20w-40 or 20w-50).

    And as far as soaking the oil filter in engine oil is absolutely not recommended since there will be excess oil in the chamber = 1.2L+soaked oil filter(may be 50 to 100ml) which could result in excess oil pressure in the chamber.And the oil seals cannot withstand excess oil pressure for a prolong period.

    But I would recommend pushing the kicker lever several times while keeping the red switch on throttle side off.

    For those who don't have a kicker can unplug the spark plug cable and push the self start this could rev the engine with out turning it on


    Sorry for putting two posts, since everyone hates one long post

    Which translate to (you can try it on the google translate)

    Engine Oil


    Wet sump lubrication system
    SAE Type 20W50
    Recommended grade engine oil
    Engine Oil quantity
    YAMALUBE (Grade-SG)
    Periodic change 1.00 L
    Total change 1.20 L

    Whether you can follow service manual or the owner's manual .its upto you bro

    Regarding the owner's and the service manual any of this could be wrong ,So I would suggest following the dipstick on the oil cap to ensure the correct amount of oil.

    It is the safest.

    One important thing while doing oil change is that the washer between the drain nut and body needs to be changed every alternate times. The washer actually gets deformed every time we tighten and is the primary reason for oil leaks.
