On the right side of the bike (right side when ou are sitting on it) just above the rear brake lever behind a small circular plate. remove the plate and the oil filter is inside (you will easily see it). Warning---on these bikes you have to drop the front exhaust header and right floor board in order to change the oil filter unless you install a after market oil filter relocation kit. If you plan on changing your own oil it is highly recommended to install this relocation kit.

1) Make sure your fuel petcock is closed, then detach the gas line coming off it (left underside of tank)
2) Remove the back seat (single acorn nut on rear fender)
3) Remove the front seat (two allen bolts at the back of seat)
4) There are two metric 12mm bolts under the front seat that hold the tank down. Remove them. The tank should be sitting loose on bike, but connected by some wires
5) Disconnect the white wiring harness under the bike. Tank is now totally free to remove.
6) Pull tank up and back at the same time, it will slide off the two rubber mounts at the front.

The one way clutch that engages the starter motor to the flywheel is chattered or damaged and needs to be replaced. The starter motor turns a small gear that is connected to a large gear by a small chain. On the side of the big gear is a smooth machined surface that the one way clutch grabs when the starter is engaged. The surface is chattered and the three grabber rollers wont jam or grab on the surface unless it is smooth therefore the starter spins but the motor does not. You will probably have to replace the large gear and possibly the three rollers also.

While someone may be able to change SP's w/o removing the gas tank, most normal humans will find doing so impossible. Removing the tank is easy. Here are the steps/tips for changing your SP's
1. remove the passenger seat - 1 screw at the rear and pull toward the rear of bike.
2. remove rider's seat - 2 screws and pull the toward rear of the bike.
3. turn gas valve to off; some gas will leak during the next steps, so have a wad of paper towels or your wife's best nighty to sop up the gas (maybe a tablespoon).
4. pinch the hose clamp that secures the gas hose to the gas valve body and slide the clamp away from the valve body stem.
5. pry the hose from the gas body stem; I used a very slim flat screwdriver. This is where you mop up the gas.
6. remove the two screws at the rear base of the gas tank; ALSO - there is a small black plastic connector on the front side of the battery case that connects the tank to the battery case. The head is round, about the size of a nickel. Push the center pin in the head of this connector down a bit with an allen wrench, for example. Then, pull the connector up and out. S/B easy. If you drop it into the chassis guts, good luck.
7. slide the tank toward the rear of the bike. Easy! There is an electrical cable between the bike chassis and the tank, so you cannot, or need not, "remove" the tank to the floor or workbench. I "balanced" the tank across the chassis over the battery box and secured it in place with some bungee cords. Secure the tank as it will slide off.
8. Tip: the rear SP is on the right side of the bike as you sit on it. The front SP is on the left side of the front cylinder.
9. Remove both plastic head covers, one over the rear SP and one over the front SP, pulling straight out away from the bike. They are held by rubber grommets only, but they were not easy for me to pull out. They are plastic, so if you pry them, be careful! Yamaha probably charges $50 for a new one (cost to mfg = 17 cents).
10. use the SP socket and the box end wrench in the bike's tool kit to remove the plugs. It's a bit tricky, but not bad.
Putting it all back together is not bad. I did it and am not a mechanic. Just take your time. Doing it yourself will probably save you $60 or more. Good NGK plugs at the auto parts store were $2.50 each. Probably $6.95 at the Yamaha dealer.
