Thanks BD, that's a handy pc. of info to have. The owner manual is a bit on the light side. On the upside, it seems to take 3 less wrenches to do an oil change than what it takes on my LC4. Here's a pic of said oil line. The oil looks new because it is. I ran the bike 50 mi. and dumped the oil just in case there was some lingering sputum from the manufacturing process. Yeah, I know kinda anal, but this is my first brand new bike in 10 years. I'm glad I did because it looks like it may have been slightly overfilled at setup. I'm measuring what comes out carefully and got a full qt and a half from the bottom drain with it fresh in from a ride hot. It was about an hour later that I read your post and opened the "T" drain. Not sure how much will drain out overnight but it looked like a qt in the bucket already. Turns out, the oil change plug and the rear axle nut are the same 24mm. Anybody get a toolkit? I forgot to ask when I picked it up. Looks like a bunch of torx fasteners. I got on the Motosportz skid plate list today also. They say it ain't gonna be cheap but I'm sure it will be a dang sight cheaper than knocking that oil line off the bottom of the motor. Thanks again, I'll post up any new info I run across.
