Quick drain

Anyone have one of these installed on their scoot?

If so, any quirks/problems?

Looks handy, but with the k drain plug being on the bottom of the bike it seems as though there would not be room under there for a coupling, hose and container. If you try it, let me know how it works.

I had one of the first diesel cage before they got round to bigger sumps and synth. oil so needed an oil change every 3.5K miles. I fitted my own adaptor to the sump plug a bit like this one but had a hose which was clipped inside the hood well above the sump level. It was great, no valves needed, I used to unclip the hose and just drain the oil straight into the oil tray. The K bike would probably need a right angle version if they make one. I'd like to know more about their valve.

pulling the drain plug on the K is the easy part....the filter cover is where the mess is....belly pan sucks....what would be great is to make an hole in the bottom of the pan that had a nice cover that fitted flush with the pan...that would be the best!
