Changing Suzuki Boulevard M90 Engine Oil

Step 1. Run the engine on idle for a minute to warm the oil and help it drain faster. Next, remove the dipstick from the left side of the crankcase, which allows the engine to breathe and also helps the oil drain faster.

Step 2. Put a drain pan under the engine, and remove the 18mm drain bolt located at the bottom of the crankcase to let the oil fully drain out.
