Default 06 vino 125 oil filter removal question

Just bought today a 2006 125 vino with 3,750 miles that look like it saw the 600 mile service and that was it .I pulled the oil screen under the motor(clean)

how do you remove the main filter that gets cleaned at the 4k mark? does the exhaust have to be removed - i also keep seeing listed on ebay actual 125 vino cartridge type oil filters and others show some kind of metal filter shaped screen?

since the lower springs/screen was metal free should i even hassle with the other filter and just do a regular oil change, run it 100 miles and redue the oil just to give it a nice flush

or do a oil change, very small amount of seafoam in the crankcase and redue it after 30 miles

Here's the service manual to tell you how to remove that filter. It is on page 3-22.
http://www.provoscooter.com/wiki-old...ice_manual.pdf

The one on the bottom is referred to as an "oil strainer" and the other that is harder to remove is referred to as the "oil filter".

(There is definitely some Engrish in the manual: "Check it under the condition that a check bolt is surely loosened because oil erupts when a check bolt is removed and an engine is started." I think it means don't start the engine with the oil delivery tube banjo bolt removed? Or to make sure it's tightened properly and not leaking. Kind of a no duh, but yeah)

I rushed out and bought a new one of those filters and never installed it yet, though I should probably inspect it, seeing as how I have over 13k miles on mine (bought it with about 12k).

If it were me, I would just drain the oil, refill it, run it 100 miles and drain and refill again. I usually change my oil every 1000 miles or less on my Vino any way. I've just always been an oil change advocate. My last Jeep went 275,000 miles by just changing the oil every 3000 miles religiously. I sold it and it still ran great and never smoked. I bet its still running somewhere... My current Jeep has 145,000 miles and I think I will keep it until it hits 300,000 miles with regular oil changes...

1,000 is also my oil change interval which I think is what Yamaha calls for anyway. The Helix I had without an oil filter (only an oil strainer) called for 1000 or 1200.. I forget which. They run 25k+ if maintained properly.

Try this link for a good "how to" of the oil change procedure. Click on the pdf version. http://tinyurl.com/qe8cabf

I can never get my filter out and my strainer is always clean. I change my oil at 1900 miles (sometimes it goes closer to 2100) and my gear oil at 4k. The Vino 125 has a sound motor and its very forgiving as I have put mine through all 7 hells and back. The prevner that I bought mine from might have had the filter changed but in the 10,000+ miles I've put on it since, I have never been able to get at the filter.

Its not much of a filter anyway. The wire mesh is too large to capture anything. Just change the oil and ride it into the ground...
