I hang a tie down on the handle bars and the other to a work bench or shelve,MAke sure it is in gear, let the tie down out far enough to have bike lean on an angle about far enough to make sure all oil is running out the left side, I put a drain pan under to catch and check the oil level as far as what came out ( 450cc....)
You must do this after you run the bike and warm it up, or it will take you a week, , then stand bike up and lean it again to get any trapped oil left..Also if you might want to sell one of those, I am looking.
Also did yours have a copper or alum washer?
This does two things, it saves the threads from getting pulled out and or stripped, and seals the oil better than no washer..
Good Luck..
