SCTR,

Nice job looks exactly like my 250 ...

Suggestion ...

Oil drain plug could you add a more general area shoot to help people locate it first, then the close up of actual plug ...

This posting was definitely a BIG help. Thanks for saving me a lot of money by doing it myself instead of taking it to a dealer. :D

Why isn't this a sticky too? everyone has to do it.. it gets done more often than anything else you'll do to your bike (I hope anyway)

just my 2 and a bump

Checking the B400 oil level

To check the oil on my B400, I first had a partner hold the bike vertical and I made sure the oil level was exactly full, as the manual recommends.

Then I put it on the center stand and jacked the front wheel up and down until the dipstick indicated the same as it had when being held vertical. It turned out that 1 1/2" under the front wheel was needed.

Now I can check the oil with the bike on the centerstand.

oil change

Thanx SCTR, That helped tremendously. I did check out your site to order parts but believe it or not I got the oil filter and both orings at my suzuki dealer for $11.00, it would have cost $15.75 on-line. But your instructions were greatly appreciated.

The B400 engine oil filter and both o-rings are available for purchase at your local NAPA Auto Parts store (part number FIL4949) for about $12.00.

I got two (2) OIL filters at the dealer for $11.77. They didnt have the o rings. didn't even know they had 2. I just used the old ones with no problems.

Nice article - However there is no mention of the "other" filter, the mesh screen held on by two bolts on the other side of the bike. The maintenace schedule says this needs to be cleaned??

400 oil change

Picked up my '07 couple days ago. Still has 2 miles on it :cry: . While doing a walk through, the service mgr. cautioned me about doing my oil change. He said that to drain the oil there are 3 plugs at the bottom. Remove the wrong plug and a spring with a metal ball will come out. if this happens the transmission needs to be disassembled to replace ball. :shock: This true? Also, he said if I use filters other then Suzuki oil & filter while in warrenty, this would void the warrenty if the problem is engine related. Since this is my first new vehicle, is this true? Everything I had before I bought used. One other question, since this is a paper cartrige filter, are there the good, the bad and the ugly as far as brands? thankx

This doesn't apply to the 2007 Burgman 400

The Burgman AN400 K7 uses a:

Oil filter 16510-05240

The o-rings are the same as shown:

09280-13004 & 09280-54001

Here is site that you can buy them from and it has a good drawing of the oil pump assembly. Also note the location the oil drain plug on the 2007, if you look on the left side of the bike directly opposite the oil sight glass you will see a 17MM plug facing you, that is the oil drain plug. They also have clothing and other accessories for a good price.

The shipping is high so I ordered my o-rings and filters along with a new Tour Master Intake Jacket for a great price.

on edit: The 2007 Burgman AN 400 K7 uses 1200 ml oil without filter change and 1300ml with filter change, not 1900ml or 2 full quarts as the illustration calls for. Of course you will need to buy 2 quarts since a quart is only 946 ml.

I just called NAPA and the part number FIL4949 is now obsolete and has been replaced with a new number PS4949, thanx for the info..I am going to go get one and compare it to the Suzuki filter 8)

EDIT: The PS4949 will not fit a AN400K7!!

The 400K7 engine has the drain plug and filter on the left side of the engine, away from the hot exhaust. The filler hole is still on the right side.

I just got back from Napa. After taxes, the PS4949 is now $17.99 plus tax, o-rings included. Check the dealer price before you go to Napa.

NAPA wants about 17 dollars for parts here Panama City Beach as well.
Dealer does entire oil change for 30 dollars. I still recommend doing it yourself atleast once just to be sure you know how but 13 bucks for labor to have the dealer do it is quite acceptable for me to ensure I do not screw something up ... LAUGH

All in All... the directions provided are great

Many Thanks for posting them,

John

Kragen (Checker, etc.) offers the Fram filter for $10, next day order.
Considering the tendancy of the older bikes to eat oil under a load, what do you think of going to 20/50 motorcycle oil?

I just had to pay for my 600 mile checkup. After I saw what I paid for parts and what the cost of the labor was, I am definitely doing my own oil changes in the future. Thanks for the information and pictures in the pdf posting. You saved me about $70.00 in labor costs.
