    Take a lesson from me...

    So I went to go change my oil today.

    Picked up 4L of Amsoil, warmed the bike up, drained the oil completely, and had a bitch of a time getting the oil filter off. I went to Lordco and picked up a filter wrench to get the thing off.

    After 20 min of working with my hands, the filter wrench not working, and trying to use a screw clamp for extra purchase, I still couldn't get the damn filter off so I went and used a screwdriver and a hammer for the good old stab'n'twist method.

    It worked wonderfully.

    Pulled out my new Beck Arnley filter, moistened her up and threaded her on. The filter wrench even work for that extra turn at the end.

    Head I over to the other side and open the oil filler and start pouring in the liquid gold. I get through the 3.74L and the level still says L, so I figure it's got to be getting close seeing as I changed the filter and all, so I grab my spare 1qt and start to top her up.
    After nearly the quart, the level's still not moving, so I finally look right under the bike and realize I DIDN'T PUT THE GODDAMN SH!@# F!@# BARBARA STREISAND TAMPON POPSICLE DRAIN PLUG BACK IN!!!!!!!!!
    I JUST POURED $80 DOWN THE GODDAMN DRAIN!!!!

    That's what I get for not eating lunch. If I had any balls, I would be punching myself in them, but thankfully my wife took them away years ago.

    Guess I'm out to get more gold tomorrow.
    I hope everyone gets to learn my lesson here.

    Eat lunch.

    also, did you have a bucket down the oil collected in, or was it just going straight onto the ground?

    My first ever job in the automotive industry was in a quick lube, over 20 years ago. I worked full time in the pit in the summers, and part time when I was back in school. When I left there, I went on to become an automotive tech, and I still do it for a living. I once calculated I'd changed some obscene amount of oil filters. Like it was over 100 000 or something. I have NEVER EVER EVER seen anyone actually use a screwdriver to remove an oil filter. I have only ever read about it on internet forums. I can't for the life of me figure out what people are doing wrong. Between 16" waterpump pliers, curve jaw filter pliers, a band wrench(had the same one for 20 years), or a filter cup, I've never had an issue.

    That said, I HAVE added oil to an engine with no drain plug. I feel your pain on that one. Hahahaha

    You didn't notice the oil running out the bottom as you poured an entire 4L into it?

    Awesome! I do feel your pain though...I once forgot the crush washer while changing the oil in my truck, and it leaked...a lot. Two oil changes in one day.

    Yeah, I had my reservoir down, but I probably would have noticed sooner if there had been a giant puddle forming.
