17 bucks sounds even better to me. I've thought about having the local hydro hose shop build me one. And now that I know what size the thread pitch is on the drain plug, I'll ask to have them give me a price on it.

I just took the plug when I did an oil change and had them put a fitting on one end and picked out a metric sized plug for the other end. Took about 15 minutes.

I just found a 90 degree fitting with the oil tank threads on one end and flare on the other. The tank side has a o ring and nut so the fitting can be set at any angle and locked. With your fuel tank off and that lower bracket under the tank removed you can put the fittting in the tank and time it so it misses the fuel petcock and other bolts. To change oil just remove the cap and drain. Depending on the set up you may need some little funnel or something but mine "just" clears. Or you could slide a piece of hose over the end of the fitting.

And I purchased the hose kit prior to this. Even had the local weld shop copy it with some changes I thought of.

As for catching shavings that your filter isnt getting, glue a donut magnet to your oil filter cap if you have a particular worry.

YMMV

Quick question:

Since the hose is not an integral part of the pressurized oiling system, do you guys think I could get away with a nylon braided hose?

The point being that I could go all black on the system, and that those hoses can withstand temperature form 275F to 500F...

Thanks!!

I don't think it would be an issue. I don't think it's pressurized

the braided hose wasn't picked for the pressure but for an extra safety feature to protect the hose for outside damages

Personally, i put some shrink tube on top of it to make it all black.

I run the CJ hose on my 990, then I drilled about a 3/4 inch hole in the corner of my skid plate. Now I just drop the front bolts of the skid plate put a catch pan under the plate pull the plugs, oil drains into the skid plate out the hole into the catch pan. When it's all drained I clean the skid plate with brake cleaner and put it back together. Complete job in under 15 minutes. Or about the time it takes to drink a beer, well you have to have something to do when you're watching oil drain into a pan.

Do you have a trick for removing the oil filter without the mess that I always create?

Yeah, brake cleaner to spray the mess off of everything when you are done.

Everything goes into the skid plate and out the hole. Right, just use a can of brake cleaner to clean up the engine and skid plate, it all goes into the catch pan. Oh I do have a stavens racing skid plate which is wider then stock. Stay safe out there

A mess when you remove the oil screen??

You do remove the oil from the under pan before removing the screen, right? I use an aluminum plate, the kind you find in a kitchen, to catch anything coming out of it, which is very little... And it's reusable!!

My .02...

Merci Bikyto!! Bonne idée, but the nylon braiding should protect it, and it's cheaper... Most of the line is hidden behind cowlings or tank... And if something was to break the line, I figure that some other less manageable damage were to happen to the bike... Which would probably render it unrideable...

Qwik, thanks for your input as well!

I believe the drain hose on mine is about eight inches. It reaches to just under the middle of the stator cover and I secure it with ziptyes to the hard lines that run under the motor

Thanks Qwik! So a 12" line would suffice... Cool!!

Yes mine reaches a few cms past the oil filter cover. 12 inches works.
