Oil drain
« on: March 13, 2017, 03:26:13 AM »
Hi -

I've just bought a DRZ from 2000.

On trying to change the oil I discover a weld where the sump drain is supposed to be.
Presumably someone over tightened the plug, cracked the casing and simply welded it shut.

So draining the frame I have got about 1250ml out. That leaves 550ml still in the sump by my reckoning.
Anyone got any ideas how to get the last  oil out without a sump drain?
Can it be sucked out maybe?

Thanks

Richard
