Whoop Whoop!!! I did it! I changed my own oil! This time took about 45 minutes including clean up and as Johnny Bench use to say..."No Runs, No drips, No Errors".
Honda GN4 10W40
Honda filter and new crush washer.
Even used a torque wrench.

So if any of you guys come by wanting to ride, I will be too busy patting myself on the back:D

You da man. Next comes the brake pads and that will be followed by fluid change. You are on the road to self- reliance.

Sure saves money when you do things yourself, plus self gratification.And if you get stuck on something there is always the forum with people willing to help.

Easy now!!! My next move is to change that infamous "Dope" in the rear end.

That's a tough one. My method is to build you up slowly. The " Dope " in the rear end was going to be your final exam. You are going to need to purchase a special tool.
The Label said something about proctology:eek:....Ummm....Uh..I am speechless.

See, it was easy. Just think of the money you saved. Dealers charge a lot for something you can do yourself.

Now you can go around your house and kill the weeds with the used motor oil. When I really want to step it up and add some romantic ambience to my household, I make used motor oil floating candles. It really adds that industrial smokey aroma I'm so fond of. A couple of drops in the pond help control the mosquito population too. 101 uses for old oil. If you have a HD over, you can pour out a quick puddle underneath it to make it feel welcome. Ok, I admit, I came back from a BBQ and had a few too many Pabst Blue Ribbons. First time I ever had that beer. Wasn't bad at all.

I will just take the old oil to Advance Auto Parts for proper disposal:) You can have my part of the PBR's. Its a little too skunky for me:eek:
