Since I posted my review of the Amotostuff engine protector
I've had a number of emails asking about the difficulty of changing the oil once the plate was in place. I did an oil/filter change today, and am happy to report that it was a piece of cake. It took me less than a minute to remove the two bottom bolts and drop the rear of the plate; my oil drain pan fit underneath the bike and I was able to do the job without removing the skid plate from the bike. Total additional time to raise and lower the plate=a couple of minutes.
