Hey guys, at the moment..I am installing my LV Cat Delete pipe. I noticed there was some oil residue near the front cylinder head where the header pipe goes. I accidentally put too much oil in my 796 a couple of weeks ago but didnt think anything of it.

When I took off the stock header, there wasn't any oil residue inside the cylinder hole or exhaust. So I'm thinking it came from the oil filter? Do I have anything to worry about?

Also...which bolt under the engine is the oil drain plug..I obviously need to drain some oil today...please let me know what you guys think.

A manual is a wonderful thing...
Study it often and read it time and time again...
Look for other things while you are at it.. anything and everything...
I'm sure someone will inform you about the drain plug, Some may loosen the oil filter (Clean first ) and let some dribble out....:)
PAY ATTENTION!!!;)

I've actually been searching the manual all morning...manual only tells you about the oil level but nothing on where the oil drain plug is or how to change the oil...unless I havent been looking hard enough.

There is an easier way. Take a syringe, 60cc slip tip if you can find it and a piece of tubing. Put tubing down the oil filler hole and suck some oil out with the syringe. Don't drop tubing into case. As for the plug, on the 08 1100 model it is on the bottom of the case towards the rear visible lying on your back looking up at the engine, not sure about 796. Careful not to over tighten when torquing it back down.

Except the Italians aren't the best with making manuals. It doesn't show where the bolt is. It just shows the bolt. Ü
