Default Drain pan - what do you use?

Did my first oil change today, and it was a PITA because I didn't have a drain pan shallow enough to fit under the bike while it was on the kickstand. What drain pan do you guys use that fits?

I usually just park the bike over a storm drain. You're doing it the hard way!

lol, i'm kidding, please don't send the EPA to my house.

I have a 10-qt. pan I picked up at Walmart probably a decade ago. It's about 4 inches deep with a closed top that has a couple drain plugs in it. Handy dandy. I just kick it under the bike from the high side, then walk around and do my work on the low side.

Barring any of that, you can put a block under the kickstand to get you some clearance...or add air to the rear shock

You can call me Billy. Or Luci. But don't call me Shirley.

I use one of those round black drain pans with a capped spout on it so when it's full, I just bring it to the oil recovery place and empty it out. It's low enough to slide under the bike on the side stand. Of course, my bike is not lowered.

I completed an oil change last night as well as swapped my spark plugs for Iridiums and inserted a new K&N air filter. Took me 10-15 mins. I use the most common plastic drain pan thats about 6-8 inches tall as I also use this for my cars and truck. It would never fit without a lift but all I do is ride the front tire up onto one of my car tire ramps and put a few bricks under the kick stand and it give plenty of room under the bike.

Default Harley pan- blasphemy, I know but it seems great

No I have never owned a harley

Yes I am open minded about everyone should ride anything that they want. Period

Yes I just bought a harley product to service my victory (and other bikes)

Yes it looks like a VERY impressive piece of gear.

No I have not used it yet, snowed again today in ny

Yes I am sick of winter
