Fortunately my screen plug is fairly accessible, but I ordered a new hex version already. Ten bucks on the 'bay. What are the cheap filters and where can I find them?

Autozone had a sale, $2.99 a quart for Castrol or Valvoline 20-50 bike oil...bought a case to use during the rapid changes. Need some filters and I'll be good. I dropped the oil tonight (plug was leaking, needs to be resealed or something) and it looks like ***.

Default Changing oil on a evolution 85 to 99

Never use straight synthetic on an evolution only semi syn oil the camshaft Torrington bearing is poor quality and will not turn synthetic oil is to slippery and will not work took my cam out at 25000 km FYI for ya. If you do not catch it fast enough. It will flake and go into your crank case and take our bearings do not run full synthetic in an evo
