There's no issue there, I get wanting a tried and true system though.and a confirmation that it works, without any detrimental effects to the power unit.
No, wont help unfortunately. I'm talking about something like this which lets you just move it sideways and clock it. Those are the only style I found which fit the threads from Suzuki.The problem I had with removing the oil filter was that it was so close to the engine block/headers that it was almost impossible to "capture" the oil that came out when I removed the oil filter without it getting onto the headers/wrap. Would the "90 degree" adapter move the filter far enough forward/over to eliminate the "leakage" issue?
Yea, I got this but it didn't really help much. I even wrapped the headers in aluminum foil, but it found its way past that, too.For what it's worth, a flexible funnel makes the job a lot cleaner.
If you're really planning on pulling the tank every time you can rivnut the mount hole, makes it a little bit easier not having to fumble with the nut.Finally got around to removing a tank and replacing the oil filter. Wasn’t that big of a task and next time it’ll be faster.
