Don't buy,Change the Oil is not going to win any book awards. It was disappointing. Very poorly organized with random points made through out and other points repeated multiple times. The information could have been conveyed in about 10 well written pages. It could have used a proof reader. There were many misspellings, missing words, etc. Photos were of a very poor quality. I really don't know whether I should trust the information. I recommend you find another source for the information
Of course M.Mac knows highly technical stuff like this is best left to the rocket scientists at the Hardly Dealer. They can do this stuff with one hand behind their back diggin' in their exposed ass-crack.
Yes!, I do consider you a lowly bar hopping idiot barely capable of remembering to inhale regularly without prompting if you are incapable of performing this basic maintenance procedure on your own bike for this simple reason: a rider will find himself in the middle of a ride when an oil change comes due.

UPDATE: !Note to readers! - disregard any mechanical advice posted under the reviews. It's just my old GPz homies playin' around tryin' to help a Hardly to the junkpile. This means you, MM.
UPDATE II (They just can't help themselves...) :
Come on bro. $35.00 to learn how to change your oil on a motorcycle where both the drain plug and fill plug are in easy sight? I think that's worthy of a little ridicule. Of course, $35.00 isn't bad when you have to pay $15.00 a quart for the genuine Harley-Davidson Motor Oil. You need a very special oil to keep that cutting edge technology lubed and in tip top shape.
I have a Harley rider/friend who still uses straight 50w in cool weather and
actually uses 90w gear lube in the crankcase when it gets hot out. Keeps it
from leaking out as fast. He also carries a drip cup to catch the oil that
leaks out and pours it back in the bike before he starts it up. (I'm not
