    Oil Change Question

    My Monkey is about ready for it's first oil change.
    From what I've seen online, lots of people suggest to also clean the spinner and screen.
    I believe there are two gaskets involved in the removal that may become damaged when the case is removed.
    I want to be ready with new gaskets if I need to replace them.
    Does anyone have part numbers for these gaskets?
    Also, are they interchangeable with the gaskets used on the Grom?

    Thanks

    Wow, those gaskets are cheap. I think I'll wait for a while before I tear into mine.

    If you still need the part numbers I have them. I changed oil (Honda 10W-30) at 100 miles and installed a Gold Plug magnetic drain plug, I plan to change again at 300 miles (Honda 10W-30) and at 1,500 I will change to M1 synthetic 10W-40 4T oil (or the Castroil equivalent) and also at 1,500 I will clean the screen and spinner. After that I will change every 1,500 or at least once per year at the end of the season.

    What Grommuter posted, those gaskets are interchangeable.
    You'll also need a ''locking agent'' or loctite for the filter cover bolts.

    Thanks! I'm done with steady garage. They won't ship to an address different then the billing address which is so dumb.

    Bike Bandit, Partzilla, and Rocky Mountain ATV all have the gaskets you need and shipping will be cheaper than any Grom shop. I'd love to support more Grom shops, but they make it extremely difficult with their astronomical shipping prices.
