Good one.  Now do one with a Thin Lizzy soundtrack.   8)

I'm assuming you keep the bike upright with tie-downs?

Singhg5  You nailed it young man, perfect! 

So, you do not have the new/improved oil filter cap?

One other thing on the oil filter cap for C5 owners:  It's got 3 bolts and the seal under it is just an o-ring, no ears where the bolts pass through like on the one pictured in the video.

very nice video showing the correct tools and procedure. what missed was, that the new oil filter should be primed /dipped in clean oil before fitting in.......as per factory procedures....!!

Nice job Singh. Procedure also calls for tilting the bike from side to side on centre stand to liberate trapped oil too
