Well i finally made it back. After the last message board crash i am just now getting back to the "Think Snow" Campaign. Any ways, My question seems simple enough. How do you go about changing the oil inj filter on my 2000 Triumph? I guess i mean how do i get the air out of the line after i change it? After all i want to get this maintence stuff out of the way while it is warm outside so i can ride all winter. I just finished the wash and wax, and i am also wondering if anyone can reccommend a cleaner/conditioner for the seat. Thanks in advance.

For the oil filter thing, what I do with mine is try to get it as full as possible with oil, after I change it, then I pressurize the oil tank with compressed air. Put a rag around the filler hole, and stick a air compresser hose end in there and just let it pressurize, until all bubbles are gone. Then start and let the machine run for awhile because the engine will be full of oil.

This may not be the greatest way, but it's how I do mine.

I use Armor All Protectant stuff on my seat. Seems to do the trick.

There is a bleed screw on the oil pump much like when you bleed a brake system. Just fill up the tank and bleed it out. At least I think there is.

I should clarify, Armor-all on the sides of the seat, not where I sit, there I just wipe stuff off, if it's mud or something, just a wet rag.
