its like that that makes me wonder why i change my own oil on a car when you can find shops all day wanting to do it for like $20
Those shops forget to put drain plugs in all the time. they remember when you are stuck on the side of the road off.

Had a evo buddy I loaned him my garage to change oil and he forgot to screw the bolt back in after he drained his car. Needless to say he didn't notice till he dumped 4 qts of oil on my garage floor.

Found a suggestion on another site (specific for my model), helps a lot of things including remembering to put all bolts back in (and where they go).

Take a piece of cardboard, make a crude drawing of your left & rt fairings. Use a screwdriver to poke holes corresponding to where every bolt is. For everything else, just take a pen and write it down. (Drain plug, fill cap etc). Put all the bolts (etc) in their proper holes as you take them out -- you never lose them, and it works as a progress chart so you don't do things like that.

you can get the segmented tackle boxes too, just clean it out before you start and use those round button stickies to write something simple on for reference.

That's a good tip. I'll have to remember that

I had a friend that worked at toyota forget to fill the engine with oil after he drained it. Needless to say toyota had to put a new engine in the car after the lady drove off.

I've done it once in the worst possible circumstances: it was my trackbike, and it was on a trailer where, because of the trailer, I couldn't get the belly pan out from under the bike. So I ended up with a belly pan full of oil and no way of emptying it. This all went down in the parking lot of a Motel 6 in Denver.

Definetly one of my more epic fails.
