    Does anyone know the size and thread of the of the oil drain plug? I want to purchase a Fumoto valve to make oil changes easier.

    This is the one for the Explorer so I guess the same

    Explorer Fumoto

    I guess I would have some concerns about the tap being accidentally opened at some point as there isn't a lock, just a detent. But other than that looks handy!

    The 2 step process to open the tap.... Lift against the spring and then turn would probably mean it is very little chance of being opened accidentally... At only around £20 I may get one and fit at the next oil change as I have just had a service done

    I may try the one with the nipple for a drain tube.  Stick a plastic tube on the nipple and drain to a reservoir.  Should be pretty clean.   I need to decide if I have any concerns about the additional ground clearance lost to the nipple?

    Yes.... Few things worse than dragging your nipple along the ground! :148: :156: :745:

    I have used the valve on my car the last few years. makes life so easy. I hadn't thought about one for the Trophy, as on the ST1100 it is a bit too exposed. May have a look.
