Oil Filter Issues on a Yamaha Warrior 350
I purchased a 2001 yamaha warrior last week, and was going over basic maintenance to be sure that I was ready for my first trip with it. I checked the air filter and did an oil change. However, when I took out the air filter, it was a loose fit and didn't fit snuggly anywhere. Is this normal?
Also, I removed the oil filter, and it was fairly snug. I pulled it out and checked it, but it had no debri on it what so ever. I went to go put it back in, but couldn't get it to fit snuggly like it was when I pulled it out. I feel so stupid that I couldn't get it back in, as I have done plenty of oil changes on a regular car. Is the oil filter supposed to fit loose, and then I put the cover back on? Or am i supposed to get it fitted snuggly somehow?
Lastly, I read the manual and it said to use 10w-30 oil or yamalube 10w-30. I put Castrol GTX in it, 10W-30. Should I drain that out and put atv oil in it? Or will castrol just once not hurt anything just so I don't waste the oil?
