Dremel or the like. Note: a grinder would work as well.

Be sure to wear eye protection!

For us Fumoto "valvees", it's literally a one finger job to drain the oil. I can't believe I waited as long as I did to do the upgrade.

Your right WildKat; there's always crud inside the belly pan fairing.

Buzz could be a few issues. Usually a carb balance issue.

OK.
I'll research the carbs.
I changed the oil over the weekend and turns out it didn't need...
It almost honey colored but you couldn't tell it by the sight glass.

Which genius decided the oil filter should go right there and put behind those pipes where big handed fellow cant reach in there!

It had a K&N oil filter on it. I don't like K&N for anything. I have had and read bad stuff about them for the particulate sizes they allow passing.

Last note..... Message "received" on the Biking Viking thread.
