Rolled the Wee out of the Bat Cave today, warmed it up for 30 minutes and back to the dark for an oil change. Drain plug was real tight and the filter was loose enough to turn off with my finger tips. So much for service at the dealer. I can't believe the filter did not leak for 1400 miles. My guardian angel must have been a rider.
Checked the drain plug for metal fragments, none to be found, wiped it off and checked the drain pan after pouring oil into jug for disposal. Found just 10 or so small pieces, enough to make the head of a pin. I figure that is good for an engine with just 1800 miles on it.
New Zuk filter and 10-40 amsoil in the Wee and went for a ride and made a point of checking for leaks, A-OK. I still can't believe that filter. Ride On.
