Default OIL CHANGE 2007 SUZUKI EIGER 400 PLZ. HELP

You will need:
4 quarts oil
#1359 NAPA Oil Filter
oil filter wench that fits that filter
1/2 drive 21MM socket and ratchet
a long reach funnel with a small end

remove the left engine cover and the right bottom cover that covers the oil fill. level plug
remove and replace the spin on oil filter
remove the engine drain plug using a 21MM socket, located on the bottom, toward the right on the engine
drain the oil, reinstall the drain plug and fill with 4 quarts of oil pouring it thru the oil fill- level plug
I use the NAPA 1359 Oil Filter cause it costs $8.99 the Suzuki Oil Filter is $27.88
I use Amsoil ATV Synthetic oil thats $6.70 a quart, the Suzuki 10W40 is $10.50 a quart
I don't care what brand of oil or filter you use, I use my brands cause they are less expensive

On my 07 Eiger I didn't take off any Plastic. I was able to pull the wheel well plastic piece back with out taking it off. I used a 21mm socket and drained it. I was able to get a long narrow funnel under the filter so it would drip into the funnel and run into the pan. I went and got a WIX filter $11 I will use NAPA next time beause it is cheaper. I bought Valvoline 10w40 ATV oil at auto zone for $3.30 a qt. I will switch to synthetic at around 200 miles. It took around 30 minutes total and 25 of it was just letting everything drain completely.

My dealer charged me 14.00 for a filter and 14.00 for a four quart jug of oil and I thought that was bad.
