I use one more like the the 1st one, but with equal length jaws. I've never had to take any body work off, even using the long version filter.

Rotella T6 and a filter at Walmart for 25 bucks for me. No way I spend $64 for an oil change, unless someone can show me conclusive proof of something better. I never saw it working in one of the best lubricants labs in the country.

Did my first oil change on my '19 n1k. Man was it a bear. That oil filter was put on very tight, I had to punch a hole in it with a screwdriver to break it loose. I also ended up having to take off the left side fairing to really get to the filter which I was trying to avoid doing. I used motul 7100 full synthetic and a k&n filter. I did notice the old oil I drained had a ton of metal filings from the engine breaking in which is expected. Bike was at 650 miles when change was done. I would like to know what others use for oil and filter brands.
I use Motul and K7N too on my 2020 SX
