The place where you remove the material from has nothing to do with the strength of this piece ie you won't weaken it by removing the material.

Installed the drain valve a half dozen oil changes ago, works great $20 buck well spent. Also useful to drain a little off if you accidentally over-fill

Sorry for the dumb question, but what's the advantage of draining out of the oil tank vs. dropping the skid plate and draining from the bottom of the case? Seems like draining the pan would mean removing more particulate matter that may have settled at the bottom. Plus the bash plate needs to be dropped to change the filter. Or should I not be changing the filter every time?

I had my local hydraulic shop make me a hose for 30 bucks yesterday

exactly, less than half the oil will be drained by the engine drain.

Need a hose to drain the oil from my 990

I have tried to make one down here in Brazil but no good due to the fact that we don't use the same kind of tread. I went to some hydraulic shops no luck.

If some one is going to make one I would appreciate making an extra to me! It can be shipped to San Diego USA and I can pay via PayPal.

Just PM me thanks!

You have a dry sump system so some is in the engine and most is in the oil tank. That is why you drain both, I sure see the convenience of the oil line from the tank but what about the screen under the left fuel tank? I like to do everything all at once and clean underneath and make sure all my screens are free from debris.

I don't bother with that screen but maybe once a year if I happen to have the tanks off anyway. I've never found enough of anything in it to warrant removing and cleaning it.

Here's another time saver: All the oil that's going to come out of the crankcase will do so when you remove the crankcase screen, so I don't bother with the drain plug either.

I have never been comfortable with this mod because the stock oil tank drain has a magnetic tip that is "dusty" every time I change oil. You lose that with this drain hose mod.
