Do-it-yourself oil changes saves time and money. Kawasaki motorcycles offer easy access to the oil fill plug, drain plug, and oil filter. Always stand the bike up so that the frame is level to the ground, enabling you to properly drain all the oil from the system. Bike stands or jack stands can stabilise the bike while you work on it. The drain plug on the 1993 ZR1100 is on the bottom of the oil pan, next to the filter.

Support the bike in a vertical position with a bike stand.
Place an oil bucket beneath the bike, centred on the oil pan.
Remove the oil filter retaining bolt located on the bottom of the oil pan near the rear of the bike.
Pull the oil filter cover off, which should be easy once the bolt is removed. The oil filter sits on top of the cap and is held in place by the retaining bolt.
Tips and warnings
- Drain the oil before removing the filter. The oil will pour out fast otherwise. Replace the rubber grommets on the bolt and cap when changing the filter. Replacement grommets are included with the filter upon purchase.
