Re: Gearbox oil change on sidestand ?
Thankyou so much to everybody who answered, especially to Mark for the excellent pictorial.
I have just done the job. Far easier than expected and now I understand that the centre stand is still in place when doing the job. Only the hydraulic part has to be moved.
I also undid the two front allen bolts and slid the whole thing back as Mark suggests.
This week, apart from changing the gear oil, I have changed the motor oil and filter, fuel filter, air filter, spark plugs and cooling liquid, so I am off for a beer or two to celebrate.
