****Profanity laced rant, if your soft.. bail out now****
I just did the last in-home service on my bike. I don't need problems like this in my life.
First off when I pulled the plug from the sump the oil rushed out like it was under pressure. It hit the pan and splashed out in a radius larger than my piece of cardboard I had under the catch pan.. f****n oil all over the place.. I got 4 quarts in the f****n pan and 1 quart on the garage floor. I don't know why, it's never done this before.
Then.. I use the piece of foil under the filter to keep the oil contained while removing the filter. It somehow flowed in behind it and managed to get all over the f****n exhaust.. in my haste I used the seat for balance to get up off the floor.. yup.. I got g******d oil on my Sunbrella Russell seat..
I go to pour the oil from the pan into my recycle jug.. yup, oil all over the place, running down the sides of the f****n jug, wind blowing it all over the place... ****. What kind of azzhole designers these POS pans that won't pour decently? At least I had enough brains to take it out into the dirt.. of the 4 quarts in the pan I managed to get 3 of them in jug, 1 quart in the dirt...
I passed on the rear diff fluid today.. Can you guess why?
Then I spend the next f*****n 2-1/2 hours jacking around with the GS-911 trying to get it to work.. (WiFi connection as I don't have a laptop to plug in direct) I did everything I could to get it to work, no dice. It would connect then disconnect. I would pair it with my phone then it would disconnect. I would pair it with my iPad, same f*****n thing. I updated the firmware.. yea that was a no go as well. If I wasn't partners with Chris on this f*****n thing I would smash it with a hammer, run it over with the neighbors lawn mower then burn what was left of ****-sucker. This thing is a PITFA every time I use it. The last two times I got it to work, not this time. I give up.. I'm just going to keep looking at the service reminder.. I'm so far past giving a chit at this point.
Tomorrow's task is changing the air filter.. I've not personally done it yet so.. any guesses as to how f****n well that's going to go?
Next time this SOB need an oil change someone else is going to do it. I can afford shop labor prices for the once a year I need it done.
Geeezuuzzz I need a f****n vacation.....
Picture included of oil all over the place for full effect..
Freedom is the miles I'm rollin' on!
