1) Is there an easier bike in the world to change the oil on? Man, no fairings to remove, no headers to get in the way!!

2) The manual actually recommends that the bike be placed on the sidestand to drain the oil. Seemed a little strange, but then again, I'm not used to a bike without a centerstand. I figured I'd do an experiment, and started draining the oil with the bike on the rear stand until it stopped, then dropped the bike down onto the side stand, and a bunch more oil came out. Guess they weren't kidding. So my question is. How do racers do oil chages on their SVs when they have no side stand? Am I crazy? Is that 4 questions?

1) No.

2) The manual explicitly states that the bike should be on the side stand since it would fall down on top of the person changing the oil if it wasn't - it's a liability issue!

I was gonna bust on you about the number of questions, but I guess the last one, "Is that 4 questions?", made it four.

Not if it's on a rear stand it won't. I guess my question is, if it is designed to only drain fully on the side stand, what do I do when I remove the sidestand? As I mentioned, more drained after I dropped it off the rearstand and put it back on the sidestand. Seems strange.:dunno: Guess I'll ask around at the track.

Wait til you put race glass on. Then you'll be just like the rest of us.

Now get that thing on the track!

You are going Summit on the 19th? Right?

Unfortunately no! Can't do the 19th. It's killing me!

But I'll be at BeaveRun on the 24th and VIR on June 2nd!!

Only other ones that I've had time to sign up for so far are Summit Point June 23 and VIR again August 25th.

I will also be signing up for the Code School Sept 1st (most likely) or 2nd. Need to find some more.
