Easier way to change oil?

Recommended Posts

So, it's been a while since I had a European bike. Forgot about the side drain plugs. Is there an easier/less messy way to change the oil without having to take my skidplate off every time? I know years ago there used to be a "man funnel" that attached to certain frames to drain the oil without making a mess, but I don't think they exist anymore.

Thanks...for $24 wonder how hard it is to make one, just a hollow bolt with a tube connected. I may just use some type of funnel cut and wedged in there.

Yeah, mine has 4 bolts and they are allen heads. One was already stripped out, so I will figure something out. Thanks for the input though.
