Need Help doing Oil Change.

Hey All,

I'm new to the forum and I wanted to know if I could get help to change my oil. I know how because I have done it before, But I don't have an oil storage container or a stand. And since the wife and I just moved, I don't want to drop that kind of money on getting one at the stealership. If someone can help me I would really appreciate it. I just don't feel like it's worth paying that much if I can get someone to help.

I did mine without a stand, just got a really slim container that fit under the bike. Only needs to hold a few liters

get an aluminum roasting pan from kroger- $2
don't need a stand, it'll fit under.
submerge the empty oil containers in the used oil to fill them part way. finish filling them when you have all 4 partially filled.

Or, since I'm also currently in League City, you can drive the bike to me and I'll do it for ya free if you bring the oil.

See Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited, less then $50... which isn't much more then the cost of oil/filter and you don't even have to get dirty.
