New 2016 Gsxs1000 matte greay

Don't do what I did with the oil pan plug. Cracked the pan putting it back in after draining. 500$ later and a new pan; back after it in Central CA Kern County area.

Looking good! Cracked the oil pan with the drain plug? That is some serious torque. I guess you didn't trust the crush washer? (which I haven't ever replaced by the way - bad me).

Done five oil changes and haven't changed the crush washer either.

The funny thing is the crush washer never even deformed at all. All aluminum will be treated with kit gloves from now on.
