    ?? OIL DRAIN PLUG ?? 1985Yamaha FJ1100

    May sound a bit silly, but a friend of mine who owns the 1985 FJ1100, has told me twice now that he has been needing to change the oil, but is not 100% certain of the drain plug location.

    I believe that what he told me is that if it is the one he's thinking it must be.....he would have to remove the exhaust in order to gain access to it.

    I thought I might be able to find him a definite answer on the location of the oil drain plug so that way he can GET IT DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Also, if anyone knows where I could find a service/repair manual for a 1985 FJ1100, that I could download or have emailed to me so that I could print it.......FOR FREE ...... THAT would BE AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!

    Appreciate any help I can get!
    Thanks

    As a note to follow the parts diagram-

    The drain plugs will probably both need new crush washers: just take an old one and one of the two drain-bolts to the nearest car-parts place, and have them match the size for you.

    Buy four of them so you don't have to came back for a while.

    The large hollow bolt that goes through the filter housing is only tightened to about 10lb-ft, and no more. Barely snug is all it takes to keep things sealed up. Cinch it down as most people try to do, and it'll be crying time when you round off the flats of the bolt's 10mm head at the next removal attempt.

    Yamaha is not the least bit shy when it comes to placing parts needing regular removal behind the exhaust pipes. The V Star's oil filter is behind the front pipe.

    An 850 Moto Guzzi,I had years ago,had the spinon oil filter inside the oil pan, remove about 20 hex head bolts to the drop pan, Italian engineering.

    A well placed piece of foil keeps the oil from the filter area of my FJR from pouring all over the fairing during a change. At least the exhaust is routed on each side of the drain plug.

    Some of the aftermarket exhausts for the FJ required removal to access the drain plug. The stock exhaust didn't. It just burned your fingers.
