    I've got a Fumoto oil drain valve on my Grom. It may be overkill, but it makes oil changes not as messy. Also, I've verified the new valve is flush with the oil pan, so oil won't pool around the drain...

    Got any photos of that installed? I've read people use it, but I'd be worried about that thing hanging down underneath the engine.

    Holy cow that's awesome as long as it doesn't try to return to flat by itself. But this, and some of the other suggestions above, are why I started this thread. Thanks for the heads up on that one!

    Not sure if its lead (feels like it based off the weight) that is encased in "rubber", but it will hold its shape. Although if you hold it horizontal while its flat, it will flop under its own weight. You gotta have a U-shape, then it will hold. It works better than aluminum foil, in my opinion.

    After making my post I checked it out on YouTube to see if it retains its shape. And, like you said, it does. The video below shows that.

    It seems like it's well worth the money. I'm definitely picking one up!

    I have a Fumoto valve on my 15 Ram 2500 Cummins Diesel and oil changes are mess free, especially with 3 gallons of oil discharging. Post a pic if you can.

    The IXIL exhaust has a well thought out feature in that it bends around the oil plug.

    I use a magnetic gold plug to catch the hardened ferrous wear surface particles.

    Well Yoshi did the loop for the longer length exhaust while keeping the weight low and centralized. It makes all the sense in the world. It just makes changing the oil a little bit of a challenge especially when you have to remove the side cover. I wish Honda would have changed the cover of this engine to give us something easier to maintain since it's a street bike. That didn't happen so we have to deal with it.

    I ordered up one of the Form-A-Funnels that solidjohnny suggested. That should help a lot! I did also install a Gold Plug. The socket is TIGHT on that hex head. I like that a lot.

    Here's the Fumoto B109SX oil drain valve on my 2018 Grom:



    It's got a clip lock just in case and I've got a piece of tubing with a Fumoto nipple that snaps on and off easily.

    I don't have a photo of the inlet, but I'll post a photo when I do an oil change.
