Hi, like the title say is this doable? Wanna change the old filter with a new one since I was't able to have it change the last time I had an oil change.

How much oil will be loss if I only change the filter? Will it be messy if so do you think placing the bike in a inclined plane or raising the front will help prevent the oil inside from flowing out?

Personally I would leave it till your next oil change. But to each his own. Oil already soaked/trapped in the filter plus what pours out from the bike is likely close to 1/4 to 1/3rd of the total quantity of oil your bike needs.

You will have a little that comes out from the bike but nothing crazy maybe 200ml at the most (depends how long its sat without the engine running), but you will have a half liter or more in the filter itself. It will make a mess but if your prepped with a oil catch pan and some brakeclean its nothing serious. Its really a matter of keeping the filter upright once you have it spun off.

Just change the filter. It's not like all the oil is going to drain from there right? Prefill the filter 75%, then top off your oil as normal?

Use a clean oil pan, catch what falls out (probably a decent amount) and put it all back in if you are really insistent. Even with this it may still need a top off. Otherwise just leave the filter until the next change.
