This was a while back also. First time I changed the oil on my 400F I place a drain pan under the frame and loosened the frame drain bolt. The oil shot out of the drain bolt all over my front tire/rim/floor/etc. This was for sure my longest oil change, the learning curve has come way down since then. I cut the back/bottom off of a plastic milk jug and hold it upside down in front of the frame drain plug now!
