Re: Oil Fill on the LT (not another oil thread)
I think the copper tubing solution will be the highest flow rate, but I use a funnel like this and it works great. You can cut off the tip to get faster flow, but I find mine flows plenty fast as long as the oil is room temp or warmer. I like this for two reasons: 1. It is fairly compact to store once the spout is collapsed. 2. I can leave one bottle of oil in the funnel to drain while I am getting the next bottle uncapped and unsealed. I just hand the funnel with a bungee cord and it stays in place.
Lots of good approaches here, just pick your poison.
Slightly off topic, but I still have the folded paper “funnels” in my top case cubby that came with my LT. I have never had to add oil while on the road, but I am curious as to whether anyone has ever tried to use one of the BMW folded paper funnels to add oil while on the road? I have always wondered if they would actually work.
