Along with OIL!!!. I killed engine and proceeded to finish the project successfully.
Good news: Cap came off easily
Bad news: Oil came out cold.
Yeah I am with the other supporting guys. Good on you for having a go and doing it yourself. And good on you for the honest post about the mess.

I enjoy working on the bike myself. Its not about the money. If you do not have the threads in the cover here is a picture or two on how simple it is to do yourself with an 8mm thread tap.

Never changed the cylinder heads on a pan head Ford?

Loosen head bolts, start engine. POP!

I realise this is an old post...

However, I'm currently preparing to do the same myself. I'm averaging 2000 miles/month, so the 7500 service will be due soon! I'm expecting it get it done whilst I'm on paternity leave

The question is, how did you reset the service indicator?

Only the dealer can do it by connecting the diag system to your bike.
Others on this forum said that also Tuneboy offers this option.

Any experience of going down this route? I presume they still charge you an hours labour?

No idea what a tuneboy is, sounds like a sort of 80's ipod

The most alarming thing I read in your post is the insinuation that you go by/will follow the 7500 oil-change interval.

Don't mean to start another "oil thread" here LOL

All that said, I have never been able to put more than 2500-3000 miles on any of my street bikes, so may be that's why I consider 7500 mile interval to be ridiculous marketing BS

I will be changing my oil in the next month or so, will report back

I don't tend to get hung up on running bikes in, or changing the oil every other week. As long as I warm it up before I flog it down the road, I just ride them and if they start giving me trouble, I trade them in.

The rate at which I'm consuming oil over the last 2000 miles, I reckon my oil has been "changed" over the course of a month anyway.

I'm happy to follow the service schedule. If I tracked the bike, I'd maybe think about changing it more frequently, but I've never been on the track... yet.
