    Use a Scavenger system and wait till it fills or near fills a quart bottle(placed in an oil drain pan for overflow).

    Yeah I could use one but it's way easier to pull the filter and fire up the bike and let it run down the foil I put under it into the drian pan, just gotta remember to fill the oil tank first! :oldsmile:

    Well that is sort of what the scavenger does except it contains the mess a bit better.
