Oil change reminder

Probably not necessary to mention for most of you but maybe for just one member............

Changed the oil on my beast this morning. Upon inspecting the old filter I noticed the gasket was missing. This hadn't happened in a long time to me but today the old oil gasket was still stuck on the housing. Gotta always check for that. You can start and warm up your ride after an oil change with a 'double' gasket and it will appear fine. No leaks. Jump on the highway and then it's going to blow for sure. And when they blow that way they blow big time. It just takes a second to check for the old gasket but maybe it could save someone a ton of heartache.

I know this is SOP for most members but maybe for that newbe just looking to get their hands a little dirty................
