    Default Oil Tank Cleaning

    Anybody remove the oil tank for cleaning? What to expect when removing tank? A good excuse to replace the oil lines.

    It is a habit from my shovelhead and flathead dirty oil tank days. Man those bikes really crapped up the oil bags, Had to do that every 3 or 4 oil changes. Always had sediment in the tank.

    Not much need with the XR. Change the oil hot and the tank will drain well. If you really get carried away, use the Scavenger puck method - or just the same method with a new filter in place instead of the puck, and pump a couple quarts of oil through, till it runs clean out of the sump. But that is excessive compulsive!
