Just be aware that the manual gearbox is VERY particular about having a proper gl4 oil not one of the hybrid gl4/5 oils motor factors are want of selling.

to the OP...oil and filter is very easy to change. I removed the exhaust heat shield and coolant expansion tank for easier access to the oil filter. I used 10W-40 Castrol since I am in the tropics.

Do not omit flushing coolant and brake fluid as part of the over all service....see same wiki page for specs and advice on coolant type.
Cheers.

OP, I forgot to indicate that you should get the Suzuki OEM oil filter, I think I have seen them advertised here on this site.

When I went to get the oil and filter from the parts store, they were trying to sell me a Denso filter which was a bit shorter than the original. Shorter on an already short filter I think is not the way to go IMO.
I prefer a filter holding more volume of oil and more filtration surface area.
Cheers.
