what the hell. its my first time doing an oil change. got the cowling off ok. but the drain bolt WONT budge at all. (08 r6). stupid question, and i know righty tighty lefty loosey, but if you are sitting on the drain bolt side, do you pushthe ratchet toward the front tire, or pull it back toward the back tire?
it is like NOT budging at all and im getting pissed.
ps...i used to have an account here, one day it disappeared after the site was down for a few days?

Use a breaker bar attached to your rachet. It comes extra tight from the factory. When you are putting it back in you don't need to tighten it as tight.

that shit was ridiculous. man, after i posted that, i got heated, walked outside and forced the ****er right off. did a dance and drained it. took so long i couldnt throw the cowl back on because it got too dark. bike night tomorrow so i gotta do it pronto.
thanks for the advice though!
