Way cleaner oil change this time around.
OE side stand a bit dicey, springs up with minimal movement of scooter, filed the stopper a bit for more lean angle helps, especially with the rear shock lowering bracket.

Does this oil filter look like the one that came on the bike new from factory?

Bought the bike with 1000 miles on it, not sure original owner did any service so I did an oil change at 1100 miles saw a few specs of aluminum and just now at 1450 oil is very clean with no impurities to be found

No answer for you on the filter. I like what you did with the funnel. Was the lean enough to actually pour oil through the funnel in any meaningful way? I have gone to using a 500mL syringe to fill or add oil.

It is the type of filter fitted at the factory now , So your probably right about not having had an oil change .

That is the new oem mahle filter, and they are a lot easier to work with than the one they replaced, The hex head one is work getting in, so is the old original one. This one seems a lot easiier to screw on and off.

Yes it was a quick and clean fill. I cut less off than needed to get a perfect fit then threaded/turned it in one turn.
Tried a tiny funnel first, that would have taken all day
