OIl Change
« on: May 18, 2016, 02:25:53 am »
Do i need a special tool to remove oil drain plug? Doesn't look like typical plug that i usually apply a socket to and loosen?
In my next life i will go to mcycle mechanics school right after H.S.

Thanks

Not for the drain plug, but for the oil filter, which should also be changed.

Seems like an oil filter wrench i had for a Vmax i use to own fits perfectly.But the drain plug  has a hexagon shape and thought i might need a special Triumph tool.

Reading old posts (from W8D4IT)it says that an 8mm hex head allen wrench will help me unscrew it.Hopefully i found my solution.

Good old fashioned metric Allen wrench or hex bits as they are called. I have a set that fits on my 3/8 ratchet, get them anywhere that has a good selection of tools.

IIRC, I used one from  this set from HFT.  I don't recall the size, but this set goes up to 17MM.
