crush washer importance... oops it fell off...
I just did an oil change / filter replacement.
I put on a new magnetic oil drain plug that I ordered from A&S power sports.
As I was running the engine post oil change to check for leaks I looked down and the new crush washer was sitting on the garage floor.
So I ran the bike for 20 min to check for leaks and all was AOK
Do I need to pull the plug, trash the oil (I would not consider recycling (putting back into the engine) because of the mess and trouble to get the used oil back in the engine.
The problem and reason I am writing is that I have to leave for a 600 mile trip this afternoon and I have no oil to put in the bike and limited time.
Do I need to deplay a few hours and get 4 new quarts of oil and pull the drain plug and install the crush washer?
Lastly, how much OIL do I need o put back in since I am not going to pull the filter?
THANKS in advance for the quick responses...
