I'm new on here and recently purchased a 2007 Honda 400 ex. Ive always wanted a quad and always rode my friends. Well now i have my own and am addicted!! Ive been riding it for the past month and getting ready to change my oil for the first time this weekend. Any suggestions?

It is red. I will have pics up soon. I got Pro Honda GN4 oil and a K&N oil filter. I am going to change the oil this weekend. I don't have a torque wrench so I'm gonna just be careful to not strip. Has anyone else done that or would you not recommend doing it without a torque wrench? Plus I am in the market to buy nerf bars with fat pegs. Any suggestions? And if you live in Pennsylvania near Pittsburgh what are some good riding spots?

I've never used a torque wrench on an oil drain plug. Just snug it up and remember, if it leaks, you can always tighten it up a little more, but if you overtighten it, you will have a problem.
