Question Quick valve on the end of the hose?

Anyone ever thought of connecting the valve to the other end of the hose, just a thought. I'm sure those parts can be had to adapt it up, or possibly a 1/4" or smaller ball valve in pipe thread would work. Like all the attention this getting from the KTM
DIY network.

FYI,
Sure like to give you a pic of my new Oil Drain Hose from Craig Johnson, CJdesigns. Just not in position to do that right now.

The hose looks professional with clear plastic encasing the braided stainless steal wrap. No problem with the hose rubbing around in the skid plate area. The hose ends and caps are anodized high quality hydraulic fittings. The inside diameter looks fairly large so oil should drain quickly.

I'm ready to install on my next oil change. If you email CJ I think he will be able to send you a drain hose quickly.

I've never met CJ but he will treat you like a friend and his work is very professional. So the bump to a good guy.
KJ

Edit cause I ain't got no grammar>

Hmmm... my parts arrived yesterday and my "black" adapter part somehow became "blue" when it arrived. It's a very dark blue, and since it's going to mount on the bottom of the oil tank it'll probably remain blue.

(Maybe if I'm feeling a little too vain I'll spray it quick with some black Rustolum?)

Does anyone have an actual hose length measurement that they are happy with? I see "about a foot....."

I'd like to cut it before I break the bike down for the installation, it's cold out!

Thanks!

Steve

So what's the consensus....


How many oil changes are you going to go before you pull the left tank and check the oil tank screen?
