Its good practice to remove the key and put it in the tail lock whenever you do any work on your motorcycle.

Someone could bump the starter button and start it without oil.
Being a Honda, she'd probably run for ten minutes and still keep going.

Clear your cookies and make sure they are enabled then try again. I'm using an android tablet and don't have any issues seeing them.

To me, it looks like some other bits hang lower than the bolt, so clearance might not be an issue.
Did you ever get the Fumoto valve? If so, how do you like it?

I actually just ordered it a week ago and I'm waiting for it to come. Put it off as the first service was done by the dealer, and I likely won't be doing the old on the bike now until it comes out again in spring. If you do buy, the place i got mine before was quickoildrainvalve, although this time I bought from a Canadian vendor as I figured it might be cheaper for me. Also as previously posted it is the F-109 you are after (not the N, as the nipple would stick down), and it is listed as a 'BMW' part, as most sites list application by car only (and BMWs seem to use the 12x1.5 design).

I should add though I've had on on the car (2006 Honda Accord V6) for years, and love it as it makes changing the oil so much easier. Plus zero chance of damaging the threads when doing a change, as you only ever have to screw the valve in once.

Thanks for this thread! Just did my first oil change and everything went great. The drain bolt was a bit of a pain to get loose but I got it after a bit.

The only issue I had was that some of the oil dripped onto my exhaust pipe when I removed the oil filter. I wiped the oil off the pipe. But after starting up the bike, smoke was coming out from where the oil was on the exterior of the pipe. Just the oil burning off I suppose. But is there a way to safely clean off the oil that dripped? Just a regular rag didn't work too well. Or should I just let it burn off?


Thanks

At work we use brake cleaner to get the oil off but the oil you dripped will just burn off anyway.
