What do you all use to fill the bike during oil changes?

I've been using a high tech oil funnel + eyeballing the oil container & dipstick method but am ready for something a little more precise.

I use a tiny funnel made for camping stove white gas. I pre measure the oil in a graduated cylinder then dump in the full amount. If you are changing the oil filter with the bike on it’s side you can pour the oil in before you put the side cover on.


Ps how is the Jitsie reusable side cover gasket working out ?

That's like the tiniest oil fill hole ever!

Cool, will definitely look into getting a graduated cylinder...duh, forgot my chemistry!

Re.. Jitsie, this one was an oil only change so TBD but will reply with my findings in another 5 hours or so of ride time.
