Swivel on it
How do you make sure the oil you're putting in your bike is clean? Ie. if you use a funnel or other device, how do you clean it first? Or do you just pour the oil straight from the bottle into the hole?
i take a garden hose and stick it in my breather every oil change to rinse those little pools out so its squeeky clean when i put the new oil in. just leave out the drain plug and let er rip. never fails me!!Paper towel and clean to the eye is all you need.
Some of you are needlessly paraoid about this clean aspect. So just to feed the paranoia I'll mention that there's about one to two cups of dirty, sludgy, BLACK as soot oil is still left in the engine even after you let it drain for an hour. There's little pools here and there throughout the engine as well as the film on all the parts.
So a light coating of old oil or even house dust on your funnel means slightly less than nada........get over it......
I have a different funnel for each,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,This is a silly thread.... I can't believe people are that paranoid about the cleanliness of their funnel.... I just try to make sure it's free of beer suds from the previous nite.....hahahaha.
Really listen to Tee Tee.....as long as your not chucking "nuts and bolts" into your crankcase...a little dust or even old oil wont do much... and yup.... that is what the filter is for.
I am surprised this hasn't already turned into a "Synthetic versus Mineral" battle already....oops maybe I started the Hijack. hahahaha
