Default 636 b1h oil change filter 'burp'

I recently bought an 04 636 b1h

Rode from Cork back home to Wexford and bike ran perfect!

Just gave it a full service and done the "Kleen air mod"

After changing the oil the pressure light came on and after searching I found out about "burping the filter" on these bikes as they can get air stuck in the system.

Filter needs to be twisted off to let the air out with the bike running and supposedly that fixes it, I have tried this numerous times now with no luck, light still on. Tried leaning the bike side to side, tried filling the filter with oil and nothing is working, getting worried it's gonna get damaged now from running it to try get pressure

Any help much appreciated! 👍

It's ok lads, finally got pressure after working on it all day! I undone the Kleen air mod which I'm not sure was the problem seen as everyone seems to swear by it, took off the sensor cleaned it, burped the filter another 4 or 5 times and the light is out! Hopefully it stays out ��

I have never heard of this and a quick search and it seems to only relate to Kawasakis?

Yeah it seems to be common on the kawsakis apparently, hadn't heard of it myself having a shed full of Suzuki's... Was lucky too, did the oil change as I always do, started the bike and let it run for a few minutes while I put me tools away before I noticed the light! Will defo keep an eye out in the future

Itís one of those things,people question it until they actually have it happen and have to do it for themselves.

would filling the filter with oil before fitment alleviate the need to burp?

I think it can help, but alot of people seem to still get the same problem. It's air stuck between the pump and filter I believe

Have had this happen to me once on the '06 ZX-10R. It's a common enough issue, and well documented. Can be prevented by not removing the filter when there is no oil in the bike. Change the oil first, then the filter.

I always soak the filter with oil while the bike is dripping off and never had that problem on my zx6r 2005
Place it open end up in the box it comes in and just pour a bit in and let it soak
