I've bought a DR600. It's in really good condition despite being stored outside under a cover for six years. I haven't tried to start it yet since I need to get rid of the old petrol and change the oil first, and this leads me to my first question:

How do I change the oil? It may seem a strange question, but I'm used to Hondas, and this is my first Suzuki with valves....... I've bought the filter but haven't yet worked out where it goes - Is it in the bottom by removing the screws around the drain plug, or is it on the right hand side near the clutch linkage?

Next question - What are the valve clearances?

Sorry for what might be simple answers, but there isn't much out there about these bikes.

I bought this to have some fun with while restoring my XT500, since my mates in our South Staffs VJMC section are ribbing me about never having anything roadworthy........!

Thats it,should be 3 bolts holding the oil filter cap on.loosen the bolts evenly and watch for the small spring thats in with the filter :thumbup:
