Thought I'd place these two fluid extractor's here, well....because it seems the proper place :D
(I re-use some of the extracted oil to clean tools, gardening equipment, and other misc doo-dads).

I own and have used this for oil removal: https://www.lowes.com/pd/LiquiVac-Oil-C ... em/1016407

Just a heads-up.
The manual says that the bike wants 800ml with a regular oil change and 900ml if the strainer is removed for cleaning.
Having just done mine, I saw no oil at all coming out of the strainer housing after draining the oil as normal.
So before you go ahead and put in 900ml after an oil change and strainer check, maybe just put in the normal 800ml and dip it after a few minutes.
My bike was on a level surface and on the centre stand, to be sure.

Presumably you never need to undo the drain bolt then?
Nice idea, that gadget.
Wonder if we can get those here in Japan?
Thanks for the heads-up.

Is there a drain bolt with a deeper shank to make removal and tightening easier?

Do you mean the strainer cap? Its soft alloy and quite shallow. I use a socket i ground the shank off so it grips the cap better and doesn't slip off. They can get really tight.

One socket has been ground down, the other not.

Yeah, the strainer cap. :oops: I have hex impact sockets that are reasonably flat that might do the job without chewing the bolt/cap.
