Yes all that and introduce the year , model, make of your machine, how you have customized it, a nice little story about how you found this machine, and of course a 2 page report explaining the reason why you don't know how to change your freakin oil.

It's a '79 to '81 Honda CM 400 custom, obviously bobbed.

If I remember correctly the oil filter is mounted on the lower crankcase, a bare element under a square cast aluminum cover held by a long bolt with (I think) a 17mm hex head.

Ignore the members offended by your inexperienced posting. You'll get used to things here.

Rob

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

On that bike you need to open the oil filler, turn the bike upside down and let the oil pour out. Opening the gas cap will help too.

Give her a few shakes to get the last few drops out.

Don't forget to turn the bike back upright before you put in new oil.

No... I'm not kidding. That's how it's done!

That's cool. I assume the bike should be running when you do this?

Yep, running and in gear, so you can get a buddy to freshen up the back tyre with a hand-held brick....

Where are you from, Oli? If anyone here lives nearby, they might be willing to help you out.

Yeah, and if they screw it up you can give us the details and we'll have some real fun with them.
