Oil Change

What's the best way to change my oil at my apartment? I don't have a way to keep my bike high enough off the ground to slide an oil pan under it. At my dad's house I would just keep the front wheel up in the garage, because the garage floor is a few inches higher than the driveway. That gave me enough space to slide the oil pan under. What's my best option in draining it.

Does anyone make a thinner oil pan that I can just slide under my bike without having to raise it up?

GET A 2X4 and put it under the back wheel and on under the front, make sure its not going to roll and then put your pan under it, what i did is after most of the oil is drained i would sit on the bike and keep it up right for a few mint to make sure all the oil is out , then put the plug back in and add oil!

i have my busa lowered and i sitll got a oil pan under it so i am not sure why yours will not fit. any way get some one to help it you need it

sorry if no wood av then use a couple phone books or something you just need a inch or so

maybe if u have help to park it half on the sidewalk, back wheel on the curb, front off, have someone hold the bike up while u pull the plug and drain
A man opens the door for u not because he is polite. It's so he can check out your .

I am in Pearland. Come to my apartment. I have stands, tools, oil pan and filter wrench. We can knock that out.
