Is this a joke? Are you sure you have pulled the right 17mm drain plug? Was there oil in it? OKOK Pull the oil cap, dip stick and filter off/out if the oil does not drain then pour in some marvel mystery oil say a pint and let it sit for an hour then hit the drain hole with a shot of 50 psi of air.

Good Luck

Then this reply must be a joke after 9 years.

Several years back a friend called me and asked me to come over and help him change the oil on his 90 Gold Wing. When I arrived he was starting to remove a bolt that he THOUGHT was the drain bolt. Of course it wasn't, it was a bolt with an allen head that was on the bottom of the motor. He never started working on his bike again before I arrived. :D

Simple, Just pick up the bike and pour the oil out the dipstick hole. :lol:

Dreams are good. If they were real, most would not be alive.
Next time you wake up, smile, you have another fine day to live.
