  1. Hey everyone,
    have you ever been in such a rush to do maintenece on your bike that you forget to do something BASIC!!!!

    Last weekend I decided to do a basic oil and filter change within 5 minutes while the wife was getting ready to go out.

    Bike was warm, out came the plug, off with the filter, a couple of turn overs to drain all the oil.

    on with the plug and filter and top up the oil.


    start her up to get the oil through the system, sounds a bit funny???
    New exhaust note?????

    Then I remembered I did not replace the oil filler cap. :shock:
    At least I now know my oil pressureis ok.
    A fine mist of oil went through the air as if someone was lying on their back drinking off milk and then spraying it out in a vomitting gush :LOL: :LOL:

    after I got home, many hours spent cleaning up oil all over the bike.

    Moral of the story?????

    Tell your missus the bike takes preference and the world can wait!!!!

    any other similar tragic stories?????
