I always learnt, it only needs to be tight enough to not leak. Any more and you're making it more difficult on yourself to remove next time.

To remove, drive a screwdriver through the filter then turn...

Several bikes I've owned have zero side access to the spinoff filter. This makes screwdrivers, filter wrenches, and strap wrenches completely useless. Just sayin....

I love a good oil chat while waiting on a tag.

This has replaced all filter removal tools collected thru the years.

I agree with Tuna. Stab and turn.

You can safely assume that the drop will not be in the middle of grabbing country. There was enough data a few posts back to give you a general idea where.

Totally screwed up game….

Boy, what a cluster-fuck…

I was a good guy and allowed Haystack to have the tag from the Deal beach, because I knew he had a decent trip in mind. He moved it down to the tail of the dragon, and now the thread has become a twitter-fest of oil changes and other garbage.

Whoever has the tag, move it so others can play. I'd say you have three days. If you can't move it, place it at a convenience store near your house and let someone who can move it do so.

Enough of this crap!

I second. I acquired and put an egg in play to make up for Precious. Rode a good 20 plus hours to put in play and post. Can't see wasting good summer riding weather.

Yes. Like that.

We have had 2 mascots since that egg disappeared , and in my opinion Eggy needs to go on a shelf until Drago is lost and there is agreement to replay that egg. The game has a hard time sticking to the outlined rules sometimes, and I say we start standing on then a bit more firmly.

Just my .02

Maybe the time line rule should be more clearly defined...

Well that is up to the owner of post #1. (And probably an inmate consensus).
