K16GLT final drive oil change?
While a K16GLT is not in my future--my stable with its K75, multiple K11LTs and a K12LT is more than I can manage--I received an e-mail from a faculty colleague who is clearing out his collection (except for his Gold Wing) to make room for a K16 due to arrive next saturday. He was specifically wondering if my little group of wannabe wrenches had a lift so that he could remove the rear wheel when the final drive needed an oil change. We do, so that's not the issue.
So my question is just one of mild curiosity: on all of our bikes (K series and R series) the final drive oil can be changed without removing the rear wheel. Is that different on this bike?
And while I'm on the subject, what other significant procedural changes are there in oil changes from those used on K12LTs?
