Your welcome kurtw.
Funny thing... I came up with the rubber stopper an oil change ago, and all by itself, it was still a mess.
It's the leaning the bike over on a 2X4 and "adjusting" the oil level relative to the hole that makes the whole thing work.
It's probably way to many fidgety little "do this, then do that" things for some people, but I hate mopping up spilt oil more than I hate a few extra steps.
