Finally Figured Out How to do A Spill-Free Oil Change on the XR
« on: January 26, 2020, 02:39:06 PM »
Don't use the centerstand! It gets in the way of my drain pan and usually comes out with torrential force... took me 5 oil changes to figure out the centerstand was sh#t for oil changes.   :138:

Using the kickstand gets a nice smooth pour right over the oil pan.

I do all my own servicing and have never had an issue on the center stand.

When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my Grandfather....not screaming like the passengers in his car..!

Hmm, I must have a bad drain pan for the job then. :)
