Problem solved !!--- Plus Castrol is sold in ever bike shop world wide---Another problem solved

Castrol

Yes, year around. Castrol has been the oil of choice for 40 odd years or so, used to run pure bean oil in my 1200cc SCCA C/Sedan MINI Cooper ---that would be the original Minnie --Used the same bean oil in a 2/smoker CZ & all my Penton/KTM ,
Still love that Smell!!!

oil change

You could maybe get the filter off without removing the bash plate but oil always dribbles everywhere and there would be no way to mop it up. MOD plate works great and comes off in seconds. OK maybe 2 minutes. Actually I bet with a powered driver I could get it off in less than a minute!
