    Was going to ask where the Torque wrench went to........:nah:
    prime the oil filter????
    You didn't smear a little clean oil around the oil filter o ring.....makes life a little easier next time.....
    ( lubricant around a ring always helps.... ask that lot down in Brighton....;)) :hgiggle:
    One should always know that the bloody hot oil always pisses out a lot further than anticipated..... :giggle:

    Hope the stains came out of your patio Kev......:giggle:

    You put a smile on my face.......:thumbsup:

    I thought id ''keep it ''real'' and leave the oil tray mistake in, so others are aware. I need a better tray than what i was using. One thats more shallow wont get snagged on the headers would be easier to position.

    I did smear the O ring at 4:03, the image of the white rubber glove and lubricated finger may have caused you to subconsciously block the image from memory depending on your experience with custom officers, over zealous police. The stains are still visible on the patio but ive been meaning to re do it all for 10 years now, ill do it soon ;).

    Glad it made you smile. :thumbsup: :D



    Link is above for those who want to see an oil change on a CB1000R

    Good video there :thumbsup: wish my oil filter was that easy to get to. Would ask you to do mine but you'd get oil on my downpipes :cautious:
    And in Brighton, we they only use PREMIUM lube. None of that cheap supermarket stuff:nono:

    I was surprised that the sump plug didnt end up in the hot black crud.......Is that annoying or what......
    Always keep my telescopic magnetic thingy to hand because of that......better then burnt pinkies.......:thumbsup:

    And no, haven't had the pleasures of a customs or police orificer messing with mine......take your word about that one......:giggle:

    Lubricated finger and stains on the patio......You sure that was only an oil change there Kev.......or did something happen afterwards you're not telling us about......lol ;)

    Pmsl laughing @ vid!!! To stop that happening, I used a cat litter tray. That pelet stuff for cat litter tray is good for soaking up spilled oil, too.
    Once on a hot summers day I dumped the old oil on my bike. Change the filter then decided to leave the sump plug out to get rid of the last drips of old oil whilst I went for lunch. After lunch and a few beers later I went back to the bike to fill up with new oil and guess what..................?

    Kev, does shaving your arms help to you 'pass' when cross-dressing?

    :eek: Oi..i dont shave my arms... Nor use that toxic cream you were daft enough to put on your balls :D. Nor is it the result of fisting (whatever that might be) without protective rubber gloves.

    Ever heard of Darwin? ;)

    You mean 'you're', right? Anyway, if you're the one with the flag, you're also wearing cowboy boots. In that sense, I rest my case re cross-dressing. ;) I'm the one in the middle who looks like Richard Branson (the one with the pool cue and jaunty stride who refuses to look at the bloke's arse in front). Granted, I may be naked and hairy, but that's nothing new.

    Whoooa there... I also noticed that the one on the far right also bears a striking resemblence to a member of the forum who's recently started riding a cruiser and is currently in the States on holiday. Surely that would be evolutionary regression? Scary thought.

    Well thats clearly not me!

    I would never wear an Orange combination with my skin tone, maybe olive or a beige.
