I just did the first oil change on mine (same year and model) last week. As I was reading through your post, I didn't understand what you meant by "Remove oil filter housing plug". I'm only aware of two plugs; the engine oil plug and oil tank plug. Just wondering if I missed something.

I hate to ask this, but I'm going to anyway. What did you do about servicing the clutch jet?

Thanks for the thread. Very informative.
Looking for the next cool thing.
