You can see on my video that hardly any oil comes out, but I still put a small rag under the cover.

If you leave the bike on the sidestand for an hour or so first , you may not even lose a drop .

Paul..... You da man! Always learn something new from your videos. Glad to see you mentioned Loc-tite in your installation. I don't think it was mentioned in the original instructions. Wondering if you put any on your adjusting bolts too?

Same here. Just put my ATS in a couple of days ago and only and couple of drops of oil lost.

Like everyone said, Paul you are Da Man!

Your video made the job so simple even a computer geek like me was able to do it.
