Drop the oil and filter.
The foil keeps the oil off the wheel.
Rear drive, gear box and sump all draining at once. I still manage to spill gear box oil, though.
Penrite for the gear box and rear drive. I change them every 10,000km, not every 20,000km.
Usually I use Penrite 15w-60 but the garage was out of it. This 15w-50 Diesel is used in a lot of bikes. Guzzis need an oil with a high zinc level to protect their tappets. I change the oil every 5000km, not every 10,000km.
