Yeah Shane, I acutally had the dealer do it for me, as they were already replacing recalled parts already. I only had ridden mine a day, so the change wasn't as noticeable for me. Hey, what did you use to catch the oil? kind of low down there, standard auto drip pan won't fit, unless i get one of them nifty motorcycle jacks. I checked my oil last week since i had the dealer service her a month ago, looked a bit weird. the used oil did not look like other used oil i'm used to seeing. a bit milky/chunky almost like secreting puss. maybe i didn't get a close enough look at it since i was sitting on it keeping it upright while i checked it. yours a deluxe? looks very similar to mine, wrinkly bags and everything! lol the engine sounds a bit noisier than i expected...mine's not knocking though.
