Oil & filter change should be one of the simplest tasks on a bike. Always coat the rubber sealing ring, but don't ever fill the filter.

Now you have me worried  :087:

That's me too

for once were discussing how to change oil, rather than what oil. :002: I dont bother prefilling on a side mounted filter either, but its easy enough to do on the tiger, and avoids that big slug of air going through the system. Haven't needed to adjust my valves in the last 120k miles, so.......

Apparently the problem doesn't occur if you use MOBIL ONE 4T 15/50  :008:

Did oil and filter change today, prefilled the filter for the 1st time before fitting .. Not sure if it will make much difference  :027:
Yam RD125 DX, Kwak GPZ305, Honda CB400T, 1983 Kwak GT550, Suzuki GSF650 Bandit, Tiger 1050SE .... got there in the end.

Interesting thread as I'm planning my first oil change this weekend on my 07 Tiger 1050.
I have a factory Triumph oil filter and am planning on using Mobil 1 synthetic. Not hijacking the thread to talk about oil.

So the consensus is to fill the engine then fill the filter and install?
I've done plenty of oil changes and never concerned myself with the sequence of events like this,
Thanks in advance for any advice!

it doesn't seem to make a difference either way.

This thread is talking mostly about engines that no-one on here has, unless they happen to have a brand new Speed Triple alongside their Tiger.   Just proceed as normal and youll be fine.
