    If anyone complaining about missing torque settings is an Indian rider, I might choose to buy a Harley instead. Certainly don't want to be associated with this bunch of whinnies.
    All the missing information he did not mention in the video are in the manual.
    Why not take it a step further:
    - Make sure to buy a Indian Scout first
    - Don't use open flame sources close to the engine
    - Don't drink from the oil container, as oil is bad for your body
    If you can't use a manual to look up the specs, then you should probably take your motorcycle to the dealership.

    At how many miles should oil be changed for the first time on a new scout?

    next time you make a video, name the size of the plugs and show the head of the plugs.

    Remove the horn for a oil change?

    Like others have pointed out, would have been nice to have been given the specs: fastener type/size for the plug (now I get to play the what size allen wrench game at an awkard angle!), torque and how much oil. For those who always say "who could give this a thumbs down?! waaaahh wahhh" Well, the video is usless without those specs because all of us still have to go and get the manual out to change our oil. Video is supposed to help us not have to do that.

    How much oil? What torque?

    Hey why not include how much oil you put back in ?

    • Timothy Arnold
      Timothy Arnold 3 месяца назад

      New Jargon because the Scout oil change kit comes with 4 quarts, the correct amount, as stated at the beginning of the video.

    The mating surface of the engine? I am not sure I understand :)

      if you have to ask this question, maybe changing your own oil is not for you.

      He is referring to when the lip/rim of the filter gets to the end of the threads and is actually touching the body of the engine. The moment they meet up.

    Hell of a lot cheaper than having a shop do it

      It is always a lot cheaper than a shop doing it and I'm getting ready to buy my first new bike, a 2018 Indian Scout Sixty, I've built a lot of bikes, choppers and basket cases, they turned out new sort of, but real new, I'm 66 and haven't ridden in 25 years as life just got in the way, used to ride a Goldwing to work, my Dad had a Indian Chief in 47 so I thought what the hell, they don't vibrate near as bad as a Harley does from what a friend told me who borrowed a new Scout.

    The only issue was having the tec touching the seat after the job was completed with his dirty gloves, other than that very good video.

    Why didn't you prefill the filter before install?

    • XboobtubeX
      XboobtubeX 6 месяцев назад

      ok, if u say so

    • Clint Singer
      Clint Singer Год назад +4

      That's not totally correct, you can prefill the filter and let it sit for a few minutes and the filter will absorb 99% of the oil and have very little oil leaking out when installed, try it.

    Can this kit be purchased for the 2017 Scout Sixty?

      Lies in the Skies Skies yes. Your local Indian dealer will have it, usually back at the parts counter.

    For all those whinging about not being told what the torque specs are, LOOK IN YOUR OWNERS MANUAL! Simple!
    Oh and if you CBF here are the specs 15 ft-lbs (20 Nm).

    • SuburbanHobbyist
      SuburbanHobbyist 7 месяцев назад +1

      But we are all here watching a video about how to change the oil on a Scout. They took the time to make the video. We took the time to watch the video. Would it have been that hard to include the specs. Not just the torque settings on the drain plugs, but also, what size/type tool do we need for the plugs? I don't, just weird to put out a video and leave all that stuff out. Now I have to go dig my owner's manual out.

    you 4got a procedure there Jr. . . . . . the filter gets primed before installation .
    still a good vid tho.

    • SuburbanHobbyist
      SuburbanHobbyist 7 месяцев назад +1

      I've heard you should do that but I don't think it's entirely necessary. I think it depends on the engine and where the filter sits. Could possibly get flooded with oil the minute he puts oil back in for all we know. Why don't you try throwing some oil in your Scout before putting the filter back on and see if oil drains out all over the floor. That will give you the answer.

    • Oni West

      Scorp doesnt matter, mr expert. when oil gets poured into the bike it will go into the filter.

    @3:20 What's the point of cleaning the dipstick one last time before putting in place when everything's finished ?

    • SuburbanHobbyist
      SuburbanHobbyist 7 месяцев назад +1

      Really?? Who cares?

    • Raymond Landing
      Raymond Landing 7 месяцев назад +1

      It's a good habit , if by some chance you are in a dirty environment (parking lot) and you get sand or debris on the dipstick that you cannot detect it may prevent you from running it through your engine . It is most likely just a force of habit for the technician in the video.

      The very young man has to learn some time but I do understand what your talking about, I didn't start learning about working on cars and bikes till late in life as I lived in other countries till I was 18 and you can't own even a small scooter till your 21 or have a license in most foreign countries.

    When you tighten the 2 oil drain plugs you say 'torque to spec'. Well why not say in your video what the torque setting(s) are for these 2 plugs? I understand that there may be changes in engines in the future but really just say what year and model and suggest to check the owners manual if the torque settings are in ther. Other than that an OK video.

    Just as a warning for the first time you change the oil on a Scout, sometimes they over tighten the oil filter from the factory and make it EXTREMELY hard to remove. I actually had to end up puncturing the filter with a screwdriver through the side, and use that as a leverage bar along with my filter pliers to get it off. I installed the replacement hand tight, and haven't had an issue since.

    • Jyme Bale
      Jyme Bale 7 месяцев назад +1

      The factories tighten everything way way way too damn tight, I've had to take a hammer to allen wrenches to break screws loose and some phillips too. Most used bikes don't have tool kits in them any more, most BMW's sure do.

      Yes, plenty.
      poor voice sound quality
      Does not show what fitting he is using with ratchet, although it looks like a hex head driver. Since there are 2 plugs at front-one being a recessed square head, which one is he undoing?
      rear one is a recessed hex head.
      As others have said - no torque figs stated. If you are making a vid, why not do it properly and give out ALL info possible.

      I disliked this video only because he cleaned his dipstick off the second time after reading it to just put it back in. So he’s contaminating it twice. The first time you need to do it but the second time is not needed.

      MJE horn does not have to be removed to do the oil change.

    • MJE
      MJE Год назад +2

      Kinda agree. While I appreciate the video I wish they would have shown the horn being removed, the full tightening of the filter, and the full tightening to spec (whatever the spec was) of the drain plugs. Also, does the oil pan need to be big enough to catch oil from the drain plugs AND removed filter? How long should the oil be allowed to drain from the bike? 30 minutes? Hour? More? Does "upright" when checking the oil mean perpendicular to the ground or on the kick stand (as shown in the video)?
