Ross,
I will urge you and all of the viewers of your oil change video to NOT drag the last bit of dirty oil & its CRUMBS from the bottom of the oil filter cavity across the 6:00 oil port in the mouth of the oil filter cavity.

That 6:00 oil port is the CLEAN Side oil port Directly to the Bottom Rod Bearing! Any crumbs down that hole could cause seizure of a single needle roller of that bearing & therefore failure of the entire bottom rod bearing.

I use a rubber plug to temporarily plug that 6:00 oil port before tilting the bike to the Right & wiping the dredges around the rubber plug.

Thanks for the very valid comment PDwestman, luckily the oil didnt have any 'crumbs' in it but i would imagine the damage if there was.

Thanks again.

Ross
