Created article Oil change for the MP400, MP3500/Fuoco

Wiki mods. A newer member pm's me and asked about a step by step on doing an oil change. I found one in a post from last may and since it was good I decided to set it up as a wiki. In my haste I screwed up the title and cannot edit it I am assuming because the title factors into the link for the page.

Should I just delete this page and start over or is there a backdoor way someone could change the title to" Oil change for the MP3 400, MP3 500/Fuoco"

I also placed links here MP3 400 and here MP3 500 that I will need to update.

In the wiki for mp3 400 and 500 oil change the instructions say put the bike on the stand to change the oil. Then the last sentence says "some take the bike off the stand to drain the remaining oil"!!

Why put it on the stand in the first place??

Some riders like to get ALL the oil out, so they take it off the center stand and with the oil pan moved a little, they tilt their scoot towards themselves to let the last remainder of the oil drip out.

Then put it back on the center stand to finish the changing of the oil.
