First - welcome to the forum! This has been a great resource to me and many others.

I've read of people going to lengths to remove all the old oil via suction, even letting the engine run dry. I think it's more than a bit anal at least and harmful in a worst case.

Most folks just change oil and filter as they normally would and everything is okay. That's what I and several others I know have done and no one has had any issues or problems.

Welcome to the Forum. I am in Tassie. Trust you will enjoy it as much as I have here.

I changed to Synthetic last weekend. Folks I talked to said not to worry bout the residual oil. My bike got a lot smoother and quieter once the new SYN was circulating.

I ran a K&N 10 Micron Filter for sheer ease of install/removal when contending with the Crank Position Sensor.


PM ME if you want the AMSOIL reps number, he is in VIC.

Welcome mate.

I can't answer your oil question cause I had the dealer perform that maintenance action. FIFTY bucks later I have synthetic oil.

I would like to join the rest of the gang and wish you a proper welcome to this very cool forum.

This is the place to ask the questions, get the answers and get some laughs.

Welcome aboard........ride safe and post up a storm

You are doing great.

Thought I would stop back and give you a hard time in my usual way.

Keep up the good work and remember I am going to visit your fine land one of these decades.

Cheers

You won't be sorry, Popeye. The boating in Australia is second to none. The birds chirp in their own language. The furry creatures are a bit different. And the stargazing is spectacular.

Just be careful when you go, the water does go the other way in the toilet. The first time I flushed "down under" was after several of their excellent beers and a taste or three of a nice SA Cabernet. I swear the water swirled a foot straight up in the air! :yikes:

Dear Ange:

I would like to wish you the happiest of Down under Birthdays a person with a receding hairline could have.

I am typing this message in advance of your b-day so I will not forget to reciprocate for the fine birthday card you have sent me.

I reply as my ole lady is stuck in the snow in our drive way. She is tearing up the tires because she is clueless.....got to go and help her out.

Hope you and yours have a merry and happy exchange of gifts and fluids this holiday season.
