With the funky location of the oil opening I'm gonna need a unique funnel. There are plenty on Amazon. Wondering what's worked for others. I should note I only have a few hundred miles on my new beast and the oil level has remained right at the max, but I want to be ready. Thx

The shitty 99-cent orange one from auto zone.

Or the big long one they sell that is like 2-3 bucks.

Don't complicate things.

Take off the fairing.

Or get the longer one. Looking at mine it says "extra large funnel"

(Correction I have the smaller blue one that's $1.99 that I use instead of the orange one)

I took a small funnel and about 10 inches of clear fuel line hose(?) can't recall - had it in the tool box -
The hose slid snuggly down into the funnel and I superglued the end of it at the bottom of the funnel. I just hang the funnel on one of the vent slots along the fender cowl (made a little plastic hook attached to the lip of the funnel) and poke the hose about an inch into the oil-fill port. No leaks no mess. Pull the end of the hose out and slip it into a milk jug when checking with the dipstick. Stick it back down the hole to add more oil. When finished, unhook the funnel from the cowl and let it all reside in the waste-oil jug.

FFS, Do you really need someone to pick out a funnel for you? ROFL emoticon
Have you ever wondered how to get 8% more speed out of your bike?

I hope that women do not take it badly, they are often the target of funny (but sexist) metaphor related to the world of motors even if some I know are better than me at maintenance.
PS: here I start to see more and more cars with automatic transmission, two pedals, against the three of the manual gearbox and a photo of a girl who seeing the three pedals of the manual gearbox exclaims desperately: "OMG! There are three pedals and I only have two legs! "
