    In my manual it says to check the engine oil level while on the center stand.

    Besides not filling up the new oil filter, he checked the oil level on the sidestand!!
    That's being sold as a maintenance tutorial??

    Buyer beware.

    I like to smear some oil on to rubber gasket around oil filter to make sure it does not move or brake when tightening up.

    Thanks Rob for putting it on her.
