    Here's the brace removed, allowing easy access to the sump drain bolt

    All buttoned back up. Not a drop of oil on the cardboard.

    After returning from a 10 minute ride to check the oil level. It took about 3.2 quarts.

    For a first oil change it sounds like it went really well. What was your total time spent? And how much do you think you can save next time?

    It took me an hour and a half. I think next time I could do it in an hour, that is is if I don't inspect the sump screen.

    I love this bike. Today after my 7 year olds basketball practice it was just he and I. We went for a quick ride to pick up some adult refreshments, which I strapped down with my $2.99 HF motorcycle net. On the way back home we rode along the railroad tracks in the dirt and rocks. Up the curb off the curb. This is your do it all plated dirt bike. The fun don't stop!
