How to Change the Oil in a Piaggio Fly 150by Daniel Valladares
Engine oil is important for the functionality of your Piaggio Fly 150. Changing the oil is a straightforward task, one the manufacturer recommends you perform every 6,000 kilometers or four months. The Piaggio Fly 150 uses 1.2 liters of 5W40 oil, which you can get at most automotive stores. It takes less than 10 minutes to change the oil, a good investment of your time to keep your Piaggio running properly.
Turn the bike off and place a drain pan under the drain plug.
Use a socket wrench to remove the drain plug. Remove the plug and the retaining ring. Allow the oil to drain into the drain pan.
Use a crescent wrench to remove the micro-filter revealed by removing the drain plug.
Use a crescent wrench to loosen the bolt securing the oil filter to the underside of the bike. Remove the oil filter.
Wipe off the micro-filter with a clean cloth and place it back into the bike. Reattach the drain plug and retaining ring.
Place the new filter into the bike and tighten the bolt to secure it.
Remove the oil cap from the engine. Pour the new oil into the engine. Reattach the oil cap.
