Changing oil filter after changing oil on XR650L

Recommended Posts

Spare me your what-an-idiots: yeah, I get it.  I went to do a quick oil/filter change on the pig this afternoon and one of my oil filter cover bolts was completely stripped (I might have helped).  I changed the oil anyway because I wasn't at home and didn't have the proper tools or even enough MacGyver material to get the bolt out.  Now that it's put back together and I've had a chance to gather supplies, would it be disastrous if i tried to change the filter without draining all the oil out of the engine again?


I figured I'd display my ignorance online rather than being the kid in a parking garage standing in a pool of 10-40.  Thanks, guys.
