It's so rewarding to think you would reach out to us as to what oil to use and you actually listened!
Please let my wife know. She's says I don't listen to anyone.
The help was appreciated.
The oil/filter change is done. It took longer than usual...first time on this bike...but it's done. Before I began I had to chase down a new filter removal tool because the one I had for my old Honda didn't fit. I didn't expect it would though, so I did that before I even started the job.
I read somewhere on the net that a 14mm crush washer would do and I already had those in the shed. After I removed the plug, 14mm was obviously too big. My best measurement shows that a 10mm crush washer is needed. It looks like there wasn't one on already, so I did without it this time. I hear it's OK to do that.
How hand tight was a guess, since I couldn't get my truckasaurus hands in there to get a good grip, so I used a tool and some experienced guessing.
What caught me up was the gear oil drain plug. I didn't remove it because I didn't have anything that fit it. That'll have to wait until tomorrow...another run to the auto store.
So here I go again...
Can anyone confirm the ID of the oil drain crush washer?
Is a crush washer needed for the gear oil drain, too. Same size?
What size socket will I need for the gear oil drain plug?....EDIT...Never mind. I was able to freeze a video. It's a 21mm.
As previously confirmed...I'll listen to whut yinz tell me.
