Yes!!! I'm having difficulty locating one though.
I guess I can rig up an elbow before this to tie to the drain side and have the valve extending forward where its accesible and doesnt make a mess when draining the oil....

You can order then directly from Fumoto. I'm looking at order some for my truck oil pan and fuel filter drain (diesel)

I was thinking of installing a drain tube on to it like the other solution uses.

The bike looks great! I'm glad to hear that you're enjoying it. It looks like you're taking very good care of it and you've made some nice modifications as well. Keep up the good work. -Tommy

Which model would you pick (the one in the pix?) as I am not sure of the inner diameter of the oil tube and would you install it "inline" toward the end of the tube? There doesn't seem to have quick disconnect options there.
I take it you close the valve, unplug it and open the valve while directing the tube in a drain container.
Thank you for your input!

Parts list for the remote oil drain from:

http://www.anplumbing.com/

12 x 1.5 to AN-6 adapter #9919DFG $7.99
AN-6 to -6 hose #800106 $6.25 (need 2)
AN-6 plug #580606 $3.04 (includes 2)
Perform-O-Flex hose #400060 $6.99/ft (need 2 feet)

anplumbing.com also has a 12 x 1.5 adapter with seal that they say is a carburetor adapter #991944 at $6.79 - I don't know which adapter would be the better choice for this application.

I hope this helps someone. It works out to about $40, and then oil changes should be much quicker and cleaner, especially on a long trip.

As nice an idea this is, arent you losing a magnet (for metal catching debris) in the process?

I guess there is a screen on the way out of the oil tank .....

I'm due for an oil change. I am thinking about this also. I hate changing the oil on this thing. My 640 is also a pain.

would it work with the stock hose and change only the end that leads toward the bottom and away from the oil tank. I'm a little concerned about screwing up the oil tank. Thanks

i dont know what the problem is with the oil changes, left tank comes off, undo the oil drain bolt.
i suppose i do enjoy working on bikes, maybe thats part of the reason
