Service Manual calls for a new sealing washer and o-ring on the oil drain bolt. The only o-ring was embedded in the bolt and didn't seem like it should be replaced. I could find no logic in replacing the metal sealing washing.

Replacement oil filter is a Fram CH6007 and the large o-ring that came with the filter was larger than the original Honda o-ring so I didn't replace it. Since I didn't pull the center bolt off the cover, I didn't replace the small o-ring.

The Manual shows the oil filler cap but neglects to state it's behind a small black cover to the right of the oil dip stick.

Went with Rotella 5w-40 and could tell the difference immediately.

I have about 80 kilometers on my '03.

Any opinions on frequency of o-ring replacement, at least on the oil filter?

Rob,

What's a good number to replace oil/oil filter? Obviously, I'm a low rider, so every few months might be a consideration.

How often do you change things?
