RE: Does Flo Filter mean don't have to remove exhaust anymore?
@Kimura thanks for that mate, no worries having to wait for the oil to drain, if one doesn't have to dismantle half the bike to do it. @OldePhart copy that.

How come I always get asked about engineers. I used to couldn't wait to be an engineer, now I are one. Cool

That's what engineers are good for. Design it then, modify it till you get it right. Lightbulb

BTW, Don't mean to rub it in but, the 950 has a spin on oil filter and a dipstick. Finally Whew! Blush

Nah, that's all wrong. A real engineer would never design something that stupid - for that it takes a scientist with a PhD!

Seriously, I am an engineer (software) and anybody who has really paid their dues as an engineer would hang their head in shame if they ever let anything like that get into production! Those are both bone-headed rookie mistakes that show a distinct lack of technical "systems" leadership during the design of those bikes. Like I say, it's a minor miracle that everything else works pretty darned well. Smile

Watch it @OldePhart! I am a scientist in an engineering company! Our engineers have pulses, but I think they are all DEAD.
There is great need for a sarcasm font.

RE: Does Flo Filter mean don't have to remove exhaust anymore?
@SnaykByte - you are a rare gem...a scientist who actually makes stuff that works. :) Many years ago I was selected to serve in a corporate "think tank" that worked to improve the company's software development practices. I was one of only two engineers working with about thirty scientists from all over the country. The dearth of both practical experience and common sense in that group was breathlessly stunning!

Seriously, I think that anyone who wants to be a good engineer should put in a few years as a maintenance tech and anyone who wants to become a scientist should toil as an engineer for a few years. This gives one a more "robust" view of the lifecycle of any product

RE: Does Flo Filter mean don't have to remove exhaust anymore?
A majority of engineers spend a majority of their time trying to prove that water actually flows uphill and a majority of architects spend a majority of their time trying to convince people who use logic and commonsense to survive that round buildings are actually square, ALL bureaucrats spend ALL of their time living in the bowels of governments using what grey matter they may have found laying around, convincing themselves that they are actually the rightful saviours of mankind and have the laws and statutes to prove it!!!!

Military Engineers on the other hand go out of their way to show the world what it's all about. The Officers think up and design the bridges and then order the Sappers (ordinary human soldiers) to blow the bloody things up!!!!!!

An engineer can neither be led, managed, nor herded, kinda like cats. A person with a PHD should be avoided in any environment where logical thinking is required. Just saying the obvious. Rolleyes
