HalfTon wants to know Dino or Syn?
No mess filter change

I ran across this simple fix to keep the used oil off the bike and off the floor. It will work with or without the HD funnell thingy. I have the funnell thingy and made a mess anyway! So next time:

Do you have to drink Canadian beer?

You make it sound like that's a bad thing.

I do the same thing but use an old paper towel roller. works a little better than the cut bottle because it will actually wrap right around the filter.

Please don't intervene with a common sense solution.

Nope, First slip and there goes a jug

My simple way works great, all you need is a few simple garage tools, Flat head screw driver( very long ). Chisel, brake cleaner, oil wrench, air compressor and hose, air nozzle, bleach and spray bottle.

first get about a 20 pound bag of kitty liter. See it's cheaper so thats smart. Now open that 20 pound bag and poor it all over the oil filter, stator to the ground, you see use have to use the hole bag and you can mound it up from the floor to over the filter.

Now very important, take your oil wrench and then dig thru the kitty liter to find that oil filter. Then unscrew it and let all the oil come out, then let all that sit over night, the kitty liter will soak it up.

Next morning, move your scooter away from the kitty liter oil spot to a new spot in the garage. Now use a big long flat head screw driver and dig out all the oil soaked up kitty liter around that oil filter location. sweep everything up.

Now your air compressor with the air hose and nozzle to blow away excess kitty liter, then use 100% bleach in a spray bottle to clean away the kitty liter out of the oil filter spot. spray the bleach real good and immediately use brake cleaner to help evaporate the bleach away, use your chisel to get off any stubborn left over pebbles.

I'll have to stop here, currently I've not been able to put any oil back in the scooter, I'm having some bad luck with the engine right now, it all rusted up for some reason?

I'm not keen on pounding on the oil filter, thus the oil filter boss. It is aluminum, right? I do approve of the beer part though.

I think it's more of pounding on the sealed gasket area than the boss.
