Ok. I've done many oil changes: on my 05 Triumph Sprint ST, different cars over the years. The Nomad was a little different in that it had two drain plugs. No biggie.
I pull the plugs, the oil drains, and um...where are the washers
? Every vehicle I've done used press washers with the plugs. I think, "Oh well, Kawasaki must have some advanced stuff going on."
I replace the drain plugs, changed the filter using a Bosch 3300, and poured in 4 quarts of Mobil 1 4T 10W-40. I start the bike, let it run a few minutes, check for leaks, then shut it down and wait 15 minutes or so. No leaks.
Checked the dipstick and nothing shows yet (I'm not surprised since the owner's manual says to use 4.5 quarts with a filter change). I add another half a quart and the level shows about where it should.
I start to clean up...tools, rags. I pour the old oil into a gallon container.
Duh. The washers are sitting on the bottom of the drain pan all nice and oily and shiny.
Nothing like doing the first oil change twice on your new bike to get to know her.
This is what is known as a Classic Delbert.
