Default Oil change gone WRONG!! OMG!

Ok so being a man I won't ask for directions or read the instructions but maybe this time I should have!!! HAHA I think I took to much of the bike apart to change the oil??

I'm trying to get ready for Daytona Bike week so doing a repaint and powder coat..I have decided to go with a Color Called ROOT BEER so it should be interesting to see if I made the right choice..

Oh Taking it apart was fun!!! But dang I hate putting them back together I always have tons of parts left over..

The only other option to change the oil requires two overhead hoists and the steps below.

1. Lift it up with the front wheel until the back wheel is about 1' of the ground. 2. Attach the 2nd hoist to the rear wheel and lift it until the bike is upside down. 3. Remove the dip stick and let the oil drain from the fill hole.

I thought I was the only one who did oil changes this way, I even had to buy a bigger garage to do so. The key is keeping it running to make sure the oil stays warm.

Not if you turn the motorcycle upside-down so it's resting on the handlebars and seat like working on a bicycle.
