HD oil change products

Ok Ill admit that I, like alot of others here, like to create and use products that are cheaper than HD. Just did a quick oil change. Used the thin HD oil drain pan which fits nicely under the bike. And this year I broke down and bought the overpriced filter funnel drain thing.
I wish I had bought that funnel years ago!! No drip and no mess on the floor at all!!
I have tried a bunch of the other home made oil catchers over the years. I will admit the HD one worked better than any of mine

Wish I had bought it years ago

I use one of these for all my draining. A little pricey but it works well.

+1 on that! I used "home made funnel" things for years. Some worked better than others. I saw this in the HD goodie book and broke down and bought it. Works well.

I tried one and like I have stated so many times on here I'm and idiot and failed miserably and got more oil on the bike and floor than I have in 20 years of servicing my Harley's than I ever have so I threw the dam thing in the trash !!!!!

now I'm thinking it was obviously idiotic error somehow on my part !!!

it had to be me because we all know that harley would never put out a product that doesn't work real well bahahahah

I have one of the HD filter drain thingies..... the stupid hose thing is in the wrong place, and you have to fiddle around to get it in the right place to miss the frame, and other parts for the hose. But once you have it situated it works pretty well.

Also have the primary fill thing-a-ma-jig........ that thing rocks.

I've been using the same 2 litre bottle I cut down for years. Works great and no mess. Plus all I had to pay was .99 for the pepsi inside.....
