Excellent. I remember seeing a large bolt on that side. Not sure what it was so I left it alone. You mention not to remove the bolt completely, what would happen if I do?

Thanks for the help.

I'm crossing my fingers the thing is magnetic! The cap is so there is a good chance the stick is as well. Not sure the pliers/forceps would work. The hole is pretty darn small. 1/2 an inch at the...

EZ oil Drain Valve

Has anyone installed one of these? Looks like it could take away the pain out of oil changes on my FL 120.
