Thanks for the feedback, I'll add that tonight when I'm taking my pipe off and changing the oil.

It's my son's birthday, so it may not happen.

I'm getting ready for my first oil change. Great write-up Scuzz.
One question, the Honda Repair manual mentions changing the wire-mesh filter in the oil hose connector. Is this something that needs to be done on a regular basis with the oil changes? It seems a little more complicated because it says to use a special kind of solvent to clean (flash solvent?) and then use canned air to blow dry.

THANKS!

The Honda Manual only mentions "If cleaning of each oil strainer is required (in oil tank; page 4-14. in crankcase: page 5-4) perform it before filling."

I haven't heard of anyone changing these even on the 400EX's unless the engine was letting serious amounts of metal shavings in the oil...then you probably have bigger issues than taking the screen out and cleaning it.

Funnel with a tube!!! If you have not changed your oil yet, make sure you have one. My first attempt was with a cheap filter with about a 1-1/2" nipple on the end, and I was spilling oil because the funnel had to fit in at an angle and could still barely reach. Before my next oil change I will definitely be using a different funnel.

True that. Use a smaller 1/4-inch drive if you are using a torque wrench. Believe me.

That was just plain stupidity on my part. Still can't believe I did it. I did feel a little better after the mechanics at the shop said that they also had sheared off case bolts with a torque wrench. The good news is they assured me it would be ready by Friday so I can still go on my ride.

Impressive sig by the way, I didn't even realize what it was until I looked at it a couple of times.

Yeah, I've done it before on intake bolts when I was working on my SBC in my teens. It's easy to do with a torque wrench. It's a horrible feeling though when that bolt lets go and the force gets less and less.

I stole the sig off another site and customized it - I'm not that big of a nerd to be able to make that on my own.
