Perfect "drain pan" under oil filter - during oil change

Postby scothony » Sat Aug 23, 2008 1:43 pm

I was changing my oil this afternoon and the light bulb went "ding" - anybody thought of this before?

It worked perfectly - a wash and rinse before putting it back on the bike and it now is officially a dual-purpose part...ahahahaha

I usually use an old 5qt oil jug, but that looks like it works rather well.

No melting at all??

I got to the point where I just make a mess, clean up as best I can, and let what is
left burn off.

I gotta admit that duct looks like a perfect fit for oil changes though :ok

I use a funnel I got from Wal-Mart. They often have stacks of these for less than a dollar a pop I think. I have a few of them and thought I'd give it a shot when I first changed my oil and took the following picture... it works almost perfect. These were my first set of headers and it worked better with that set than the ones I have now.. but it still works. My present set of headers, the pipes are tighter together.

Pringles can, cut. I'm grocery shopping and I see Pringles. I generally don't eat that kind of stuff, but I figured if I wanted the container I could at least enjoy the contents before using it on oil changes. :)

When my plastics come off they get placed well away from the work being done and the kids.
I just let it pour out and then wipe and wash and if any is left on the headers it gets burnt off. :drink

I think it was the part of the dash that covers the air tubes.
