I would say it was more like a few hours rather than a couple of hours. Also, it would be very difficult to do by yourself. One person has to lift the left fuel tank while the other disconnects 4 fuel lines and 2 electrical lines. other than that it was easy, it just takes time.

This is what it looks like when changing the oil.

So, even though it's a pain in the butt to do it, I would say I'm pretty happy it wasn't anymore intense! Thanks DQ!

Now the only problem is how much to put back. The manual says clearly, "approximately", but that amount barely registers on the dipstick. A search of OC reveals that several folks have the same issues. Opinions vary on whether or not to put the "approximate" amount in or fill it up to the dipstick MAX line. I am leaning toward making more oil show up on the dipstick.

Trophy, did you finish your project last night?
